After three shootings killed eight people near Atlanta, celebrities are calling for a stop to violence against Asians. Police arrested 21-year-old suspect Robert Aaron Long, who authorities believe targeted people of Asian descent in the shootings at massage parlors.
The killings come amid a wave of violence against Asian Americans. Lulu Wang, Daniel Dae Kim, Mindy Kaling and Olivia Munn were among those who responded.
Actor Kim said: “The race of the person committing the crime matters less than the simple fact that if you act with hate in your heart, you are part of the problem. And to those with the power to help and yet sit idly by, your silence is complicity. #StopAsianHate.”
