From June 3, the actress will be on Prime Video with the third season of the hit TV series.
In a message shared on Instagram in the past few hours, the actress Karen Fukuharastar of the hit series on Prime Video The Boys, revealed that she was the victim of an assault in a hate crime. Super Kimiko Miyashiro’s Fukuhara wrote: “Today I got hit on the head by a man. I’m fine, physically. This shit has to stop. We women, Asians, people of a certain age, need your help.” .
Karen Fukuhara victim of a hate crime
“I rarely talk about my private life, but something happened today that I think is serious,” Fukuhara wrote. I was going to a café for coffee and a man hit me on the back of the neck. He came out of nowhere. We hadn’t made any eye contact before, I wasn’t doing anything out of the ordinary. He came up from behind, catching me by surprise, and he swung his hat at me. I turned around, he was a few meters away from me (he must have kept walking after hitting me). I initially thought about confronting him but he started coming towards me and I thought it wasn’t worth it. After a few seconds of staring at me, and yelling at me, he finally walked away.”
“I’ve never been physically hurt before, although I have had racial slurs and hurtful gestures in the past,” Fukuhara continued. “I write this because I have spoken to multi-ethnic friends about this who had no idea that such hate crimes happen to ordinary personnel, out of the blue – people I sit at the table with. I felt it was important to raise awareness. In conclusion, I know I was lucky. He could have come back to hit me again. He could have had a weapon. The shock of this experience made me think about taking self defense classes. But why is this something we as ‘victims’ need to think about “What satisfaction do these perpetrators get from beating women, Asians, old people? They must be prosecuted. What can we do as a community to prevent these horrific crimes?”
Closeness messages from colleagues
In his message, Fukuhara repeatedly refers to an increasingly widespread and felt problem in the United States, that of acts of violence against Asian people. His colleagues in The Boys commented on her post offering support and kind words. “Fuck that guy! Hope you are well, it’s terrible,” she wrote Chace Crawford (interpreter of Abyss). Jack Quaid (Hughie) thanked her for sharing his experience and added, “I’m sorry about what happened to you. I love you. If you need anything, I’m here.” “This pisses me off. I wish I was there…”, she wrote instead Laz Alonso (Breast milk). Messages of closeness also came from other Hollywood colleagues, including Daniel Dae Kim And Olivia Munn.
