Meghan Thee Stallion is taking steps to support the Asian American community following the shootings in Atlanta earlier this month which left eight people dead.
In a post on Instagram, the singer announced she’s making a US$50,000 donation in collaboration with Fashion Nova and journalist May Lee, to support Advancing Justice Atlanta, a non-profit legal advocacy group working to protect the rights of Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders in Georgia and the Southeast
“I am heartbroken by the loss of eight individuals taken from their families on March 16 in a senseless, violent attack against Asian Americans,” she writes.
“We stand in solidarity with all Asian Americans in saying that enough is enough,” she continues, adding the hashtags #StopAsianHate and #StandWith AANHPICommunity.
Last week, actor and The Masked Singer judge Ken Jeong made a $50,000 donation to the families of the victims killed in the shootings, Grey’s Anantomy star Sandra Oh attended a Stop the Hate Rally in Pittsburgh and countless other celebrities including Daniel Dae Kim, Olivia Munn and Daniel Wu have been using their platforms to speak out against anti-asian hate crimes.
