Germans approached her camera to annoy her by tearing her eyes or trying to imitate some Asian language with nonsense words.
Lee couldn’t hold back the tears when a man on the street hit his camera while calling her “china”. Giannie stopped his walk and took a few minutes to cry in frustration and anger.
Later and with a little hope in humanity, another man appeared approaching her, this time not to annoy her, but to show her support and say that I hope that more people like her would visit the country. Giannie got very excited and asked for a hug.
Unfortunately, the figures for complaints by Asians for suffering an act of racism have been on the rise, especially at the beginning of the Coronavirus pandemic. The hatred towards the Asian community has reached extremes and for some it is considered as a joke or something insignificant.
What could have been a joyful and fun trip for Gianne turned out to be one of the worst stays of her life.
