And Pacquiao isn’t the only sports star to have lended his support to the cause.

Three-time Grand Slam champion Naomi Osaka wrote on Twitter: “If people loved Asian people as much as they love bubble tea, anime, mochi, sushi, matcha etc…

“Imagine profiting/enjoying things that come from a culture and then attacking/diminishing the ethnic group that created it.”

And NFL star Taylor Rapp is raising money for the cause.

He told CNBC: “I am Asian American and this community means a lot to me.

“I wanted to help my people, and what better way to raise money right now to donate than through creating an NFT collection and using my platform.”
