Andrew Gunadie, aka, ‘gunnarolla’, an Indonesian-Chinese vlogger got approached by the man on August 26, 2018 at a Scotiabank at King & Bathurst. The travel vlogger who came into fame through Youtube has faced his fair share of racism in Toronto. He tweeted out that “I’ve had more racist encounters to my face in this city than anywhere else in the world… granted, I have spent more time here, but mannnnn.”
Many people came to his defense on Twitter while other Asians replied back with racist incidents of their own.
Gunnarolla got a lot of racist comments when he first got a taste of internet fame when he posted a song called ‘Canadian Please’. In the video, he sports a Mountie uniform and raps with his partner about Canada. As a result, he was the recipient of racist comments telling him that Asians don’t represent Canada. Even with all the hate, he stays positive.
Damn what happened to Canadians being the nicest people in the world. Guess that courtesy only applies to white people. Unfortunately, it’ll probably get worse as fear of Chinese people taking over real estate and jobs in Toronto increases.
