Barbra Streisand Tells Off How Much Her Asian Neighbors Contributed To Her Life, With An Heartfelt Instagram Post

Living legend Barbra Streisand raised her voice against the racists acts towards Asian American people.

On March 20, the actor who received Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony Award throughout her acting career, took to her social media accounts to react to the news regarding the hate crimes towards Asian people.

Both on Instagram and Twitter, ‘The Mirror Has Two Faces‘ star released a never-before-seen TBT photo of herself with her neighbours Muriel Choy and her husband Jimmy Choy, captured at the New York premiere of ‘A Star Is Born‘ and added a heart-touching message.

Streisand, who worked as a babysitter for Choy’s two daughters before taking a job as an usher at the Lunt-Fontanne Theater, wrote:

“When I was growing up in Brooklyn, Muriel Choy was like a second mother to me. I babysat for her two little girls Debbie and Pam and worked in their Chinese restaurant. She has a special place in my heart.”

‘The Barbra Streisand Album’ hitmaker then referred to the hate crimes that arose in the United States during the coronavirus period and triggered by certain statements by politicians such as “China virus” and added:

“These crimes against Asian people break my heart. Here we are at the New York premiere of A Star Is Born, with her husband Jimmy Choy.”

A shortly before releasing this post/tweet, on Twitter, the actor accused former president Donald Trump of ushering in a new wave of hate crimes against Asian Americans, and continued:

“These latest killings break my heart. It is easier in Georgia to get a gun as the killer did than to vote under the GOP regime.”
