Rihanna attended a #StopAsianHate march in New York City with her assistant, Tina Truong.
The Bajan superstar was protesting against racial discrimination and violence targeting the Asian community in New York.
She was also caught on camera hilariously giving her Instagram handle to a protestor that didn’t recognize her at the #StopAsianHate march in New York City.
