Olivia Munn, whose mom is from Vietnam, took to Instagram on Wednesday to condemn the rise of crimes against Asian Americans in the United States.

The 40-year-old actress posted a lengthy message titled "Stop Asian Hate" and wrote in the caption that she has tagged some "incredible accounts" that people can follow to stay aware.

"Over the past few days I've found myself at a loss for words at the rise of anti-Asian hate crimes. The racist, verbal, and physical assaults have left my community fearful to step outside," she began her powerful message.

The "Love Wedding Repeat" star then cited the sudden spike in the crime rate since the coronavirus pandemic began and noted that it has been increasing over time, reported ET Online.

"These hate crimes have spiked since Covid and continue to increase even though we ask for help, even though we ask our fellow Americans to be outraged for us, even though we ask for more mainstream media coverage," the actress continued.

Munn mentioned some of the most recent acts of violence committed against elderly Asian Americans in the U.S. She also said that the hate crimes have become so bad that an 84-year-old Thai American was killed in San Francisco, a 91-year-old Asian American was attacked in Oakland, a Filipino American man was slashed in the face in Manhattan and a 64-year-old Vietnamese American woman was assaulted in San Jose.

The actress further wrote that to exist in the United States as a minority is "seen as a protest" to some people. "We need help amplifying the outage. We need help to feel safe in our country. We need help to be safe in our country," she concluded her message.

Besides Munn, many other popular faces such as Gemma Chan, Daniel Wu and U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have condemned the crimes against Asian Americans, reported InStyle.

Moreover, Wu, along with actor Daniel Kim, offered a reward of $25,000 to anyone who could provide any information about the culprit, who was caught on video pushing an elderly Asian man in Oakland. A 28-year-old convicted felon was later arrested in connection to a series of attacks against Asian Americans.
