Fala Chen Calls Out President Trump’s Tweet as Racist

The coronavirus pandemic, officially known as the COVID-19, is quickly infecting communities outside of mainland China, in particular Europe and Northern America. The San Francisco Bay Area of Northern California has already ordered its counties to have a “shelter in place” lockdown—the country’s most draconian-like measures of containing the coronavirus since the outbreak—with the possibility of New York following suit very soon.

On March 16th, President Donald Trump tweeted out a controversial statement that had upset many communities. He stated, “The United States will be powerfully supporting those industries, like Airlines and others, that are particularly affected by the Chinese Virus. We will be stronger than ever before!”

Using the term “Chinese Virus” to describe COVID-19, the president’s tweet had sparked widespread anger among local and international communities, with many referring the tweet as intentionally racist. Many online communities and national entities have publicly denounced the tweet. Celebrities have also followed suit, including former TVB actress Fala Chen (陳法拉), who is a naturalized American citizen. She shared the tweet on her Instagram story and said, “Why does he have even the energy to make up s*** like that when we have so much to deal with and heal from?” She then added, “This is intentional,” with the hashtag “racist.”

        @m0m0 I don’t know why they call my President a recist because he called the virus Chinese Virus. It it had some from any other place he would have used that name Norway, Switzerland, Greece or even from one of our states. It’s not racist it’s just a name.

        @quincygirl Might not be racist, but certainly doesn’t help Chinese/Asian-Americans. We stand out in the US (aka not white). Google is your friend, just search for some hate attacks on Chinese/Asian-Americans, as a result of this virus. If it was Norwegian, Swiss or Greek virus, doubt many would suffer such attacks, since they tend to “blend in” better.

        @pocky I’m sorry to hear about those attacks on Chinese/Asian-Americans. That is not the way I feel about things.. I wasn’t raised that way. My mom and dad would have probably kicked my butt if I had. My opinion is, if people act that way toward their fellow human beings then they were not taught any better.. I hope that all of you can get through this mess with the least amount of haters from uncouth, uneducated people..

      Trump is known for being racist so this is not shocking. But I wonder how Spanish people felt about the Spanish flu being called that? Maybe since it has been too long so people do not care or remember anymore.

      Trump has mentioned he only likes immigrants from Europe so that says a lot.

      @aktf “Chinese” and “China” are not the same. “China” means China as a country, but “Chinese” has broader meaning, it means those with Chinese descent, a race, even though they are not born in China and are citizens of their respective countries, such as Chinese Americans, Chinese Malaysians, Chinese Canadians, etc, Like me, I am Chinese but I am not China citizen.

      @aktf Not the point. The point is, as President of the US, which consists of millions of Chinese people, his comment promotes racism. It’s easy for people to point the finger and blame, especially during a hard time like this. As a “leader” Trump’s words have consequences. Many organizations & officials have came out to say that now is not the time for racism. Hence, people call it COVID-19, to make sure no ethnicity or country is attached to the virus, to prevent the spread of racism.

Without that concrete proof, the accuser and the accused are free to say anything they want to defend their argument that will end up in meaningless endless cycle!

        Just like, cryptid such as Big Foot and Yeti until today are still considered as cryptid despite the numerous so called sightings and evidences, simply because no one can provide the substantial concrete proof for those scientists and biologists to group those cryptid as new species.

        It’s not even a conspiracy theory when the US CDC admitted in front of The US congress that it was a possibility because tens of thousands Americans died last year around September and October exhibiting the same symptoms of COVID19 but they were labeled as deaths from influenza at the time. Some of those were retested recently for the covid19, they came back positive. In other words, there’s a strong possibility that the virus came from the USA into Wuhan and that’s what the Chinese government official stated. Hes not wrong for saying that because it is a possibility since there was a world military event in October where Americans were invited to Wuhan. Again, look it up, do your own research.

        Just because the mainstream media doesn’t report that doesn’t mean it’s not factual and it’s some conspiracy theory.

        You should go read up more about it.

        It’s a theory to you because you haven’t done any research. Also, popular opinion does not equal facts.

        Here I did some legwork for you where the US CDC acknowledged to the US congress that COVID-19 MAY had been originated from the USA – https://youtu.be/lANyoV-Szos?t=44

        I said MAY.

        The Chinese government official is merely requesting for MORE TRANSPARENCY from the US government, so I don’t see how you can label him as a conspiracy theorist.

        The US CDC won’t disclose the data to the world to allow themselves to be exposed and possibly critiqued because you know the US government does not practice censorship (sarcasm).

        You’re welcome!

        @anon – Condescending much? You are as ignoramus as Trump.

        A theory is still a theory if it hasn’t been proved. And if you are going to “post” evidence, please do not insert hyperlink to a man rambling about nonsense in his basement. Moreover, the guy is living in China. Cause we all know what happens when you talk “badly” about the Chinese government because the Chinese government values censorship.

        Also, we must be watching two different version of the US CDC’s testimony. US CDC did not acknowledge that COVID-19 may had been originated from the US, he said that we do not know if Americans succumbed to influenza last year may had contracted COVID-19 because tests were not done. How the hell did you deduce from that statement that the virus may had been originated from US?

        The IRONY in your last two statements is just mind blowing. Chinese government is asking the US to be transparent, cause we all know CPC is about all transparency.

        How about we spend less time assigning blame and fueling conspiracy theory because at the end of the day, who is affected from I’m this disease – human being. It doesn’t matter if you are from China, US, or anywhere in the world, people are dying. The last thing we need is another fcking world war.

        “please do not insert hyperlink to a man rambling about nonsense in his basement.”
        That man rambling with “nonsense” had presented more facts and is more credible in his videos than you. While you presented little counter-argument except with mostly insults and inaccurate information.

        “Cause we all know what happens when you talk “badly” about the Chinese government because the Chinese government values censorship.”

        Like how the US government values censorship with Chelsea Manning, Snowden and Assange, right?

        “How the hell did you deduce from that statement that the virus may had been originated from US?”

        You clearly have comprehension issues because in the video the Director of US CDC specifically said that some of the patients that died last year in which they originally thought died from influenza came back with POSITIVE COVID-19 test results. You pick and choose what you perceive as “facts” while dismissing other facts (LOL) to prove your point.

        You accuse me of acting condescending while you’re doing the same. Your irony is “mindblowing” (LOL).

        I am not even saying that the US brought the virus to China, but it is a possibility and that there is evidence that they did and should be considered. But to completely be dismissive about it, and not even ask questions and completely deny the possibilities is ignorant and irresponsible on multiple levels.

        I believe this is the video that you were talking about in your above post. It is only a very small excerpt of 36 seconds on a question raised by Harley Rouda (US Congressman of California) for Dr. Robert Redfield (Director of CDC) asking if there were some influenza patients died of Covid-19. Dr. Redfield said it could be possible, but no timing was specified in the conversation. Those influenza patients died of Covid-19 could have occurred recently after the Wuhan outbreak.

        The video was extracted and put on YouTube by China’s Xinhua News and was made it official that the Covid-19 was brought into China by the States to mislead people across the Globe, and to shift the blame of the outbreak to the States.

        Smart people should be able to find out the truth.

        Here is the link if you are interested in watching it on YouTube:

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y_dU2RCqWs4

        Please also read the article (on the following link) reported by the “The Guardian” to verify some of the facts regarding the origin of the Covid-19 outbreak:

        @virulent lol don’t bother argue with them. If a high ranking official declared US government behind the virus, many blind idiots would follow! They believe their government can do no wrong, and it’s all always the west’s fault.

        And I agree with you, trump is a racist but he called it out like that because a Chinese official literally tweeted and tried to shift the blame onto the U.S. I’m sorry but someone has to stand up against China’s BS. So while I don’t condone racism, but the damage possibly passed that. With the economy is hitting recession hard, many will lose their houses and jobs, and the sentiment against Chinese is gonna be highest as ever. China really need to apologise, then only trump would look bad, and maybe we can actually lower the racism. Sitting here call out on Trump only isn’t gonna help when you have a group of Chinese believes US started this. Put the facts straight, admit your wrong doing and really amend the government actions will be a better foundation for eradicate racism.

        @luye you are right that racist people are unreasonable, however, there will be war (or fight) when people argue where the virus comes from. You have Chinese people who blatantly accuse US for infect China with the virus, these same people running around chanting how well China is at containing the virus. These 2 factors further fuel the hate. If China just go the record and said yes, it’s originate from our country, let’s focus on helping each other through this. Then racist people will be treated like clowns. Most people have enough commonsense to not be racist or know what is racist and won’t act racistly. However, by continuing denial the fact that it is a Chinese virus, and the idiots keep going how US cause this, and how good China is, you will alienate those commonsense people and they most likely will let the racism slide. But that’s just my take.

        Ps: I heard about “US was actually the one that cause China to be infected” from a friend on 03/03 by a Chinese lady in Australia who literally argued at other people in public place that the virus came from The state.

They bad mouth him, think he’s too incompetent to take care of his own kid, couldn’t even just take his kid out to the park by himself, must have them with him in order to do so so they can keep an eye on him because he couldn’t do anything because he’s white! N their kid is like 7yo! He has no say in anything, because he doesn’t know anything because he’s white! Meanwhile she, and her mother got drunk while taking care of the kid (their taking care of the kid was: stay home, get drunk, the kid can do whatever inside the house!).

      Then I had another mainland lady who used a japanese mom to take care of her son for her. Every morning, she (or one of her family member) would drop the son at the japanese lady’s place so she can continue sleeping. She also got the japanese lady to drive her to gym (they live across from each other), and she even dared ask the japanese lady to drop her by the door so she doesn’t have to walk from the car to the door!

    Trump is racist and is trying to deflect from his terrible response which will and has killed Americans.

    This is why and how we name diseases.

      @potatochip Who listens to the WHO anymore? They are behind time. They should have come out and called it as a pandemic, not buying time for China. USA media called WuHan Virus, are they racist? I don’t see anyone *****ing about it.

        @skynet Do you know better than the WHO? Why do you say they are behind the times? No good reporter is calling it the Wuhan virus now that it has an official name. Trump is purposely race baiting.

      @potatochip we all knows why WHO named the virus so, and why it took so long for them to name the virus. Fact is trump is racist, but it’s also fact that it is a Chinese virus.

        @littlefish I disagree with your term that it is a Chinese virus. It originated from there but its not like they own it or something as a whole race. Ebola might have been coined from the place it originated but nobody said it was an African virus.

        @littlefish I agree that he is a racist but he is weaponizing “Chinese virus”. It’s only going to hurt Asian Americans, not the Chinese. He needs to be the president of all Americans.

        @potatochip he is indeed weaponising “Chinese virus”, however, he’s doing it because China started it first by trying to blame the US on this outbreak.
        He’s mostly paying back the Chinese official, the fact that many just seem to ignore???

        Why is it ok for China to twist fact, make stuff up, and everyone just take it? Trump didn’t take it, and let the bully slide, so he returned it with a “Chinese virus”. His action (use of word) is justified in this case.

        @littlefish Two wrongs dont make a right. Just because someone started on you it doesnt make it ok to retaliate when your actions hurt others.

        Racism is easy to ignite. Chinese people are treated like pariahs in UK atm. Chinatown is a ghost town. My brother had an old man glare and mumble at him and girlfriend in the supermarket about how he shouldnt be there. God forbid if Boris Johnson makes comments like Trump did, we’d have rocks thrown next.

        @megamiaow I agree 2 wrong don’t make a right. I also hope people have more compassionate than just think a random Chinese or asian lookalike cause this mess. I also wish that they should educate people that it’s actually the Chinese government’s fault, which is very corrupted atm, not the people’s fault. However, at the same time, Chinese government started this, then turn around and put the blame on you, they are asking for it. Should trump be a better man? Maybe, but he’s also sick of the bullying China is doing to him, so here’s the payback.

        Boris Johnson won’t make that mistake, but would that help your case? Possibly not. Would you not having rocks throw at you in the near future? I can’t say, but we can’t deny the resentment toward Chinese (or asian look like Chinese, not all asian will be treated like that) gonna be high for the next few years, especially if we are going to depression.

        And also we have Chinese in denial, still sing praise for their government, pinning this on US. I’m asking people who is Chinese Americans, you guys are ok with that? You guys are fine and not trusting your own government over China? Where your parents might come from, but not really where you live? And again, with so much social media, these people that sing praise to China, are the loudest, and it makes the resentment a lot deeper, and a lot longer.

        I agree racism is easily ignite. But China is already at it. There was an Australian lady who according to the news broke their quarantine rule, got fire, got deported, got criticised by 40millions people on weibo. Now I know she broke the rule (I also only read this via 1 source, and that weibo users were saying she has been rude to the officers). I have no problem she got fire or deported (both are a bit harsh), however, to leak the video footage on the net? That’s also ignite racism. China is now turning this into us vs them. And watch it, if China is managed to eradicate this virus, the Chinese inside China will treat any foreigners or people oversea that arrive in their land the same way as that guy that eyed your brother.

    I also called out Trump’s racism on my social media and had Asian and Asian American friends question how Trump was wrong.

    Look, he’s the President of the United States. He’s not the old man that works at the gas station down the street that you can ignore. As the leader of the nation, ppl look towards his words to base their actions and assertions. In this case, he’s affirming racist and violent actions against anyone who looks like they might be Chinese, which is basically anyone who looks East Asian. Four years ago, Trump built his political platform on racist nativist and nationalist rhetoric, which he’s invoking again. It seems like he’s willing to sacrifice all the ppl of Asian descent in America for re-election.

    Get ready yaw. Cause even if we weren’t that scared before, we better be scared and vigilant now.

    I don’t think Trump is racist, he’s just not sensitive. After all, the virus did originate in China. I am a Hong Konger and I blame Xi for all the losses people all over the world suffered because he was afraid of losing face and his underlings were scared to let him know the whole situation.
    Yes, I blame Xi. After all, the buck stops there.

      @afan202 I’m totally agree. All scientists around the world confirmed the virus is indeed comes from wild animals especially bats and ppl in Wuhan selling wild animals & no surprise they con infected and now spread all over the world. China government is known for controlling there citizens, they hide it at first or else it wouldn’t be this bad. They’re also known for blaming other countries and hide their bad things. They’re even try to take control of Vietnam. I believe this is karma and thanks to the chinese government for sharing this karma to the world

    I believe this is the video that Anon was talking about in his above post. It is only a very small excerpt of 36 seconds on a question raised by Harley Rouda (US Congressman of California) for Dr. Robert Redfield (Director of CDC) asking if there were some influenza patients had died of Covid-19. Dr. Redfield said it could be possible, but no timing was specified in the conversation. Those influenza patients died of Covid-19 could have occurred recently after the Wuhan outbreak.

    The video was extracted and put on YouTube by China’s Xinhua News and was made it official that the Covid-19 was brought into China by the States to mislead people across the Globe, and to shift the blame of the outbreak to the States.

    Smart people should be able to find out the truth.

    Here is the link if you are interested in watching it on YouTube:

    Please also read the article (on the following link) reported by the “The Guardian” to verify some of the facts regarding the origin of the Covid-19 outbreak:

You may not think he racist, but word can be twist in the mind of those who already not happy with what happen now. As time goes by when more people are affect by virus. They will looking for scapegoat and trump already provide it for them. Violence against us asian in america will erupt more than what you see now. Will you still gladly think is still okay.

      @contae words have racism connotations when we give it one. It’s an indisputable fact that the virus come from China. Chinese virus is basically a matter of fact. We can run around calling it covid19 to be ethical, but the resentment against Chinese will be high unfortunately, and it’s already there whether Trump calls it Chinese virus or Covid-19. So many are losing their jobs as we speak, and so many are losing their lives and loved one, our way of lives are changed for the next 6mo at least (that’s if it’s good, 18mo if it’s bad), arguing about the name of the virus distract us all from the fact that China didn’t learn from SARS, and caused this while trying to increase their country’s wealth.

      With everyone quarantined, and forced lock down, don’t think there will be violence in the near future, considering these things will go on for a month or 2 at least. People will have more to worry about: job, their health, etc. if anything, worry about civil unrest and maybe civil war before the racism. And yes, only time will tell.

    I had a “white” friend, he’s fluent in 7 languages, and I think he got a point here. Chinese ppl call “white” ppl “yeung kuay” “black” ppl “hak kuay” so…..is that not racist? Do they ever offended by what Asian call them? Why you guys are so offended by the US President call the Wuhan virus a Chinese Virus? The Chinese ppl are more racist than a lot more other races I would say. So what if the virus comes from another asian country and the president use that country name to call the virus, do you think you’re going to speak up for that country or you’ll go along with him?

    Also, his wife is Chinese. His kids are more Asian than white. And as of now, the only racist comment that his kids got from school was actually from their “Chinese” classmate’s grandma. Their classmate told them that his/her grandma asked how can their Mom can marry a “white” can any Chinese ppl answer that question?
