New Delhi: A restaurant in Paris has been vandalised amid the outbreak of coronavirus, photos of which have gone viral. Interestingly, the photos of the vandalism prove that racism doesn’t abide by common sense, geography etc. It only needs hatred. The photos, shared by several users on social media, reveal that the restaurant is actually a Japanese one. Outside the restaurant, the names of food available inside are also written in bold, including Sushi, Sashimi, Tempura — all Japanese food.

Many on social media raised the question that had it been a Chinese restaurant, it would never deserve to be vandalised like this for a virus originated in China.
