Apparently alot of people. And obviously its not something people will take lightly.
you're entitled to feel however you want, but do you honestly not think the statements are being blown out of proportion? or that, quite possibly, you and others are overreacting? it's a little much to be threatening the life of a girl and her family over something so ignorant from a girl that doesn't even have much influence in general. and what's worse is that she had to drop out in fear of her safety.
it's funny though, because all the time people say asians are quiet in regards to being discriminated against, and basically shitted upon, but then something like this happens on a small scale and they make it a huge ordeal.
