Summer Walker Accused of 'Racist Propaganda' for Sharing Fake News About Coronavirus



As the coronavirus spreads across the United States, the hate Asian Americans are getting is rising. R & B Singer? Summer walker was accused of spreading racist anti-Asian rhetoric, for posting a video on her ig which allegedly showed people in China intentionally spreading the coronavirus.

The video, which was viewed at least 141,000 times, included people of Asian descent with the headline, "People in China Seen Spreading The Coronavirus to The Public." Walker captioned the video, "That's some trifling nasty ass shit." When a fan told her the video was misleading and was from two years ago, Walker responded, "and they trifling & nasty af too so what’s your point?"

Walker has now deleted the video but many fans are disgusted with her behavior and how reckless she was not taking in consideration the hate her post would be aimed at the asian community. A fan wrote:



Walker is not the only spreading misinformation targeting the Asian community, there was a video circulating of a wet market in Indonesia that was thought of the birth place of the virus when it was in Wuhan, China.

Since the outbreak many countries have either bullied or ridiculed individuals of Asian descent. Just yesterday in the Uk An Asian Student Said He Was Beaten Up By Men Who Yelled "I Don’t Want Your Coronavirus In My Country".
