The seven-member band group have already been vocal about anti-Asian hate in the past and even called out racial discrimination on social media.

“We stand against racial discrimination. We condemn violence. You, I and we all have the right to be respected. We will stand together,” shared tweet last year.

Earlier, one of the band members recalled facing discrimination as Asians.

“We have endured expletives without reason and were mocked for the way we look. We were even asked why Asians spoke in English," he shared.

The pop group went on to add, “We cannot put into words the pain of becoming the subject of hatred and violence mainly because we look different.”
