Australian Open champion Naomi Osaka has called out those who love Asian culture but attack the community in a post on social media.

“If people loved Asian people as much as they love bubble tea, anime, mochi, sushi, matcha, etc …,” the world No 2 wrote on Twitter on Saturday. “Imagine profiting/enjoying things that come from a culture and then attacking/diminishing the ethnic group that created it.”

The post comes on the back of rising hate crimes against the Asian community in the US, with stars such as Jeremy Lin also speaking out.
