Wednesday, Mar 17, 2021
The world is in mourning after eight innocent people were gunned down at three Atlanta-area massage parlors yesterday. Robert Aaron Long, 21, opened fire at Young’s Asian Massage near Acworth, Georgia, Gold Massage Spa on Piedmont Road in Atlanta, and Aroma Therapy Spa directly across the street leaving the death toll at eight—6 of whom were of Asian descent. John Legend, LeBron James, Olivia Munn, Karrueche, Porsha Williams, and more Hollywood notables are sending their condolences to the families of the victims and speaking out against hate crimes.
My condolences goes out to the families of all the victims and the entire Asian community tonight on what transpired in Atlanta at the Aromatherapy Spa. Coward a** young man!! Just senseless and tragic!! 🙏🏾❤️👑
