OLYMPIAN Suni Lee says she ‘was pepper-sprayed and called racial slurs’ just weeks after DWTS Tyra Banks incident

Lee says she was with a group of friends “all of Asian descent” in Los Angeles when the incident occurred.

Olympian Suni Lee was allegedly the victim of a hate incident

The Dancing with the Stars contestant was allegedly waiting for an Uber when a car sped by.

Slurs and hate speech were hurled at Lee and her friends.

Phrases like “ching chong” were used, according to Lee, who added that she was pepper-sprayed in the incident.

“I was so mad, but there was nothing I could do or control because they skirted off,” she said in an interview.

“I didn’t do anything to them,” she added.

“I just let it happen.”

There has been a reported 150% increase in hate crimes in 2020, according to a study done by the California State University, San Bernardino.

This comes mere weeks after Lee was ill on an episode of Dancing With The Stars and was embarrassed by host Tyra Banks, who called attention to Lee’s illness.
