You inform ’em, Jeannie Mai!
On Thursday’s episode of The Real points obtained a little added actual when the carbon monoxide- host slapped back at some bigotry she had actually lately experienced.
It all began when she and also boyfriend Jeezy were photographed on the red rug with each other. She disclosed to a stunned target market:
“When Jeezy and I were in fashion week just recently and there were pictures posted, I saw in the comments on other blogs a couple times of like, ‘Don’t be catching that coronavirus Jeezy.’ Or, ‘she got that corona that latched him in.’ And that’s so hurtful because there are actually people that are dying from this.”
Wow How oblivious can you obtain!
The coronavirus, a brand-new condition which has actually asserted simply over 1,000 lives as of this writing, started spreading out in China– yet it is not an Asian infection. It is a human infection. You’re not more probable to have it if you’re Chinese, you’re more probable to obtain it if you remain in CHINA, where it’s flowing most, regardless of what race you are.

Thankfully Jeannie had not been curious about calling out a couple of private foolish butts yet instead enlightening everybody a little bit much more. She proceeded:
“And I also heard that there are schools that are considering to quarantine Asian kids because they just want to keep it safe. This is real life out there. So I just want to say, we know that misinformation coupled with fear leads to xenophobia. Xenophobia is a deep-rooted fear against foreigners. We just got to do better and know that when it comes to yourself, educate yourself so that you don’t give life to fears.”
