COUGHING WHILE ASIAN

Over 3 MILLION views on social media. (2.4 million on Facebook alone) in the first five days! Asians and Asian Americans are getting targeted and bullied, as anti Asian rhetoric sweeps the land and media in response to the Corona Virus. All over the news, reports of Asians, particularly Chinese, are being mentally and physically abused. An Asian male in Canada died of a heart attack when bystanders wouldn’t come to his aid because they falsely were afraid he had the corona virus. This is Michael Tow and my just-released video addressing this issue. Please share, and don't cough!
