17 Percent of Asian Americans victims of hate and harassment online (study)

As many as 17% of Asian Americans have experienced sexual harassment, stalking, physical threats, bad hoaxes, doxing, or enduring harassment, compared to 11% a year ago, according to a survey released Wednesday by the NGO Anti-Defamation League (ADL).

Asian Americans experience the largest year-over-year increase in serious hate and harassment online compared to other groups, according to this survey in January.

In particular, 50% of Asian American respondents who were harassed said it was because of their race or ethnicity.

As many as 75% of American adults who had been harassed indicated that they experienced the most harassment on Facebook, followed by Twitter and Instagram (24% each) and YouTube (21%).

The overwhelming majority of respondents (81%) agree that social media should do more to combat hate online.

ADL, the world’s leading anti-hate organization, unveiled a plan that emphasizes countering domestic extremism and terrorism, also tackling other manifestations of hate online, including harassment, anti-Semitism, anti-Muslim fanaticism, racism, and extremist disinformation.
