Woman Records Racists She’s Met On Omegle During the Pandemic

Sophie Wang went on Omegle to find new friends during the pandemic. Instead, she was met with racist verbal comments, asking her if she ate bats and was accused of making the coronavirus.

There has been a rise in racist acts and xenophobia towards Asians and Asian Americans during the pandemic, and Sophie is one of many who have been calling them out.

On her TikTok account bio, @ssophiewang, she calls herself the “ceo of finding racist people on omegle” as she made a video compilation of all the racist encounters she’s had on Omegle during the pandemic, saying that she found more “racist hoes.”

“i had a lot more clips but i couldn’t fit them all in a minute #asian #coronavirus,” she wrote in the caption.

Omegle is a free online chat site that allows users to socialize with each other without having to register.

The video has over 146,000 views on TikTok, with almost 2500 comments. “I never felt so disappointed,” one user wrote. “I’m sorry who raised these people to make them think that saying things like this are okay?????” another viewer wrote.

One Omegle user called her “Ling Ling.” Another slammed his hand on the table and said he hated her for making coronavirus when she wouldn’t show her chest. Another user said there would be “no more of her kind” and he demonstrated that anyone with slitted eyes would be disintegrated by nuclear substance from “American nuclear missiles” sent to all of Asia.
