Comedian Ken Jeong is supporting the families of victims of the brutal massage parlor killings in Atlanta shootings, including a recent donation of $50,000.
The ‘Masked Singer’ host spread the generous donation across the five GoFundMe pages for each of the victims. Five $10,000 donations were made by Kendrick Jeong to each campaign for the families of Soon Chung Park, Hyun Jung Grant, Suncha Kim, Xiaojie Tan, and Yong Yue.
On Tuesday, multiple reports confirmed the donations did in fact come from ‘The Hangover’ star to the families.

Ken Jeong, who migrated to the U.S. from South Korea, has been very vocal about stopping the ‘Asian Hate’ in the United States — and shared other fundraising information via his Twitter account.
On social media, Ken shared a video calling for the end to anti-Asian racism in the wake of the mass shooting — and the footage featured other Asian American actors including Keiko Agena and Lou Diamond Phillips.
“Stop the pandemic of hate,” Ken said in the clip.
Following the attack, a 21-year-old man has been charged with eight counts of murder and aggravated assault.

In a recent interview, Ken Jeong revealed why he believes there has been a spike in anti-Asian crime.
“This is precisely due to weaponizing terms like China virus and kung flu. And also the fact that, in this particular crime, there’s debate whether this crime is racially motivated. Asian American women are two times as likely to be assaulted in America. This was clearly, clearly racially motivated. This was clearly a hate crime.” he said.
Adding, “As a guy who used to be a doctor and whose wife is still practicing medicine, I have an idea of how to solve COVID. It’s mask, vaccination, common sense, don’t be an a–hole. But as a human, I don’t know how to solve racism. It takes listening, learning, loving, being tolerant. But it really starts off, in our particular case as Asian Americans, this ‘kung flu’ s–t has to stop. And we really need to express that loudly. And we are.”
