‘F**k ASIONS and CORONYVIRUS!’: California Family’s Car Defaced With Racist Graffiti
A woman in Fresno, California took to Facebook to vent over some unsightly graffiti that defaced her father’s car and greeted her first thing Monday morning.
The message: “F**k Asions [sic] and coronyvirus!”
While the statement misspelled words, the hate behind it is clear.
“Woke up this morning to seeing this on my dad’s car! I’m f***** beyond pissed! Y’all motherf****** need to do your damn f***** research before attacking all f***** Asians your dumbf***s!” Anna Chandy wrote in her original post, which was reportedly taken down for “hate speech and inferiority.”
Written in blue paint, the graffiti near the back of the vehicle included the word “OSKOE,” which appears to be a “signature” of the responsible party.
It also included what seems to read as “B2MC.”
Chandy was about to take her 11-year-old son to school when they discovered the graffiti. She had no words for him when he asked why someone would do this to his grandfather’s car.
“Hate crime and racism towards Asians due to the coronavirus is not okay! I mean any kind of hate crime and racism is not okay! My dad and my family don’t deserve this,” Chandy wrote in a new post. “No one deserves this!
One Facebook user allegedly discovered the signature on their car the same morning Chandy did.
Others found similar signatures elsewhere and pointed at the Instagram profile of the alleged vandal.
It is unclear whether Chandy’s family will bring the matter to the police.
Many people might not know this, but despite our large and loyal following which we are immensely grateful for, NextShark is still a small bootstrapped startup that runs on no outside funding or loans.
Everything you see today is built on the backs of warriors who have sacrificed opportunities to help give Asians all over the world a bigger voice.
However, we still face many trials and tribulations in our industry, from figuring out the most sustainable business model for independent media companies to facing the current COVID-19 pandemic decimating advertising revenues across the board.
We hope you consider making a contribution so we can continue to provide you with quality content that informs, educates and inspires the Asian community.
Even a $1 contribution goes a long way. Thank you for everyone’s support. We love you all and can’t appreciate you guys enough.
