New York City has had so many anti-Asian hate crimes lately it is a wonder people aren’t terrified to walk the streets yet. According to local news reports — the city is investigating yet another hate crime that took place on the subway and was captured by a popular Tik Tok user. The Tik Tok user caught the entire altercation on camera which saw an Asian man be violently beaten while others stood by and watched.
