Stephen Curry didn’t pull out a win against ATL Sunday, but he’s victorious in making a statement against Asian hate crimes.
The Golden State Warrior was flexin the hardwood wearing yellow, black and white custom kicks with hand-painted image of Bruce Lee.
The sneakers are a collaboration with Bruce Lee Foundation and will be auctioned off to benefit families of eight victims killed during the shooting spree in three ATL-based spas last month.
The Undefeated reports Steph Curry’s disgust with treatment of Asian-Americans lately.
Disgust, horror and outright anger at why any violence keeps happening in our country. After all we have been through this past year, let alone in the history of our country, people still deal with unnecessary tragedy and are afraid for their lives. We have to do better
Hmph, where is the lie?
Shannon Lee, Bruce Lee’s daughter and chairperson of Bruce Lee Foundation told Yahoo Entertainment Steph’s gesture symbolizes a partnership.
I think Stephen’s gesture is a beautiful example of allyship and solidarity in action.
I am honored he would choose my father and my family as the symbol for the idea that we are all one family, as my father said, and therefore must all stand for one another
Let’s hope one day we can live the promise Bruce Lee imagined.
Steph has it quoted on the sneakers in cursive: “Under the heavens, there is but one family. We are all different & unique. On purpose. But, we are all human beings on a quest to fulfill our purpose and that energy should be used to uplift & love each other to the fullest.”
Meanwhile, Rihanna stomped streets of lower Manhattan on Sunday to rally against Asian American hate crimes in a march.
A heavily masked Riri (y’all sure this Rihanna?) carried a hot pink sign reading “#StopAsianHate to show her support.
TMZ reports Rihanna made the sign and was kiking with fellow marchers and dancing in the streets.
We all know Rihanna will pull up for a good cause.
So proud of us!!!
