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.
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.
