A domestic terrorist targeted several Atlanta-area massage parlors and murdered 8 people (6 of them Asian women) yesterday afternoon/evening. Many celebs weighed in on the matter:
Feeling overwhelming grief at the senseless murder of 8 people in Atlanta. Still much we don't know, but it's clear to me that the shooter specifically targeted Asian women.— Simu Liu (@SimuLiu) March 17, 2021
Praying for the victims' families, and for my Asian sisters. Action to follow.https://t.co/DjMcG0sBbv
Wake up... your Asian friends and family are deeply scared, horrified, sick to their stomachs and wildly angry. Please please please check in on us, please please please stand with us. Please. Your Asian friend needs you, even if they aren’t publicly grieving on social media. x— Lana Condor (@lanacondor) March 17, 2021
the law enforcement spokesperson just said the shooter frequented these massage parlors and said he did this because he had a sexual addiction.— Jenny Yang (@jennyyangtv) March 17, 2021
"this was a temptation he wanted to eliminate"
SEXUAL FIXATION AND RACIALLY-MOTIVATED HATE CRIME IS NOT MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE #Atlanta

The rise in attacks towards east and southeastern Asians over the last year is as heartbreaking as it is predictable. The supposed “crime” that each minority group is accused of changes with current events, but the end result is always the same.— Rahul Kohli (@RahulKohli13) March 17, 2021
Racism. Violence. Bloodshed.
These women were people, with loved ones. They were struggling and marginalized. And if an eyewitnesses account is correct, they were targeted because they were Asian.— George Takei (@GeorgeTakei) March 17, 2021
Hold them in your hearts. Think of their families. And #StopAAPIHate
