One of the world’s leading tennis stars, Japanese tennis player Naomi Osaka has taken to her Twitter account to criticize the recent rise in hate crimes against Asians in the United States amid the Corona virus outbreak.

– If people love tea, anime, mochi, sushi, mozzarella as much as people love Asians … Imagine things that come from a culture as profit / enjoyment and then attack / downplay the ethnic group that created it – Osaka wrote by a Haitian father, Japanese Mother and has lived in the United States since the age of three.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said last Monday that he was “deeply concerned” about the escalation of violence against Asians and people of Asian descent since the outbreak. The report comes after a shooting by a white suspect in Atlanta on March 16 in which six of the eight people killed were women of Asian descent.

– It’s very sad that this has to be a hashtag – Naomi Osaka mentioned on her Instagram account, #StopasianHate (Stop hating Asians).

– It should be common sense, but in this world public knowledge now seems to be extraordinary – he added.
