Tiffany Young of Girls' Generation said she hopes that love and humanity would rise above the current COVID-19 situation around the world.
With COVID-19 being said to have originated from the Hubei Province in China, a lot of Asians tend to get associated with the deadly disease — resulting in racist remarks. But Girls’ Generation member Tiffany Young has had enough — taking to social media to speak up about it.
Young, who moved back to California after leaving SM Entertainment in 2017, shared in an Instagram post that she is saddened over the kind of treatment Asians have been getting from around the world amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
“2020 has been an emotional free fall for us all. I’ve been doing my part to stay at home. It saddens me to see the racism Asians around the world are faced with & I hope everyone can remember humanity and love above anything else through drastic times like this. We are fighting this together. The world needs a hug right now,” she wrote.
Young, who debuted in Girls’ Generation back in 2007, decided to become a soloist with the U.S. as her primary market.
She last came to Manila last January 25 for a concert at the Kia Theatre dubbed “Open Hearts Eve” Part Two.
