A man has been charged with writing racist graffiti on an Asian-owned donut shop in Regina, Canada, Regina Leader-Post reports.
On November 29, a man spray-painted racist graffiti on Country Corner Donuts. The graffiti was written in red paint and contained anti-Asian slurs.
A 46-year-old man has been charged with writing the graffiti, CBC reports. Authorities have charged him with five counts of mischief. He was involved with four other incidents in downtown Regina.
Vuong Pham, the owner of Country Corner Donuts, told Regina Leader-Post that his store has been vandalized multiple times in 2021.
Pham says that the community has shown him support since news of the vandalism broke. People from different cities have come to visit.
“Everybody come here and support me so much. (It’s) overwhelming,” Pham told Regina-Leader Post.
