Cher Blames Trump For Asian Hate Crimes In The U.S. And Worries About Her Friends After Shootings Kill 8!

The star took to social media to speak out after shootings targetting Atlanta businesses killed 8 people, 6 out of which being Asian women! That being said, Cher expressed how concerned she is about her Asian friends’ safety and used this opportunity to drag the previous POTUS for encouraging hate and discrimination towards the community.

As you probably remember, Donald Trump’s COVID-19 discussions greatly involved the rhetoric that it’s an Asian pandemic since it’s believed the first few cases appeared in China.

This led to some of his supporters attacking Asians-Americans, blaming regular people just as affected by the quarantine as anyone else, for something that was never in their control.

The hate crimes have gotten worse and worse and the latest tragedy was the most shocking.

A few days ago, 8 people were killed in three shootings at spas in Atlanta.
