Rihanna’s support for the Stop Asian Hate movement continues. On Monday (April 5), the singer was spotted in New York City among a crowd of demonstrators protesting against anti-Asian violence.
Rihanna has been using her platform to speak up in support of the AAPI community following the tragic spa shootings that resulted in the deaths eight people, six of whom were Asian women.
Though she appeared to be incognito under her mask and cap, her assistant, Tina Truong, documented the experience in a series of Instagram posts that helped to confirm the singer’s identity and participation in the Stop Asian Hate protest.
Per Truong’s Instagram stories, she and Rihanna started off making signs that included phrases like “#StopAsianHate,” “Everybody vs. Racism” and “Hate = Racism Against God.” Amid the
demonstration, the Fenty Beauty CEO was seen dancing with her signs in hand. She also interacted with protesters and appeared to exhange Instagram accounts with one of the demonstrators. Truong later posted photos of her and Rih at the protest.
The hate must stop
