The management company previously suspended the two workers after the attack, saying in a statement posted to Instagram that it "condemns all forms of discrimination, racism, xenophobia and violence against the Asian-American community".

While several celebrities have also shown support online, Rihanna joined the rally in a rather unrecognisable look as she protested against Asian Hate. Her assistant Tina Truong shared photos and video of RiRi marching alongside her in the streets. A video of her interacting with a fellow protester went viral on social media after the guy asked Rihanna for her Instagram account, not knowing it was the singer behind the mask.

"When Rih gives you her IG handle but you think she trolling", Truong captioned the video. The man was in disbelief as he responded, "That's you?"

Concern over such crimes was heightened when six Asian women were among eight people shot dead last month at Atlanta-area spas. I'm heartbroken for the Asian community & my heart is with the loved ones of those we lost.

Hate crimes reported against Asian Americans increased 149% annually in 2020 in 16 major USA cities, according to the Centre for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University, San Bernardino. According to a report by the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University, San Bernardino, anti-Asian attacks jumped by 145% in 2020.
