The Cop Who Said The Spa Shooter Had “A Bad Day” Previously Posted A Racist Shirt Blaming China For The Pandemic – By Stephanie K. Baer (Buzzfeed) / Mar 17 2021
Capt. Jay Baker shared a photo of a T-shirt he got on Facebook, saying that the coronavirus was imported from “CHY-NA.”
The Georgia sheriff’s official who said the man accused of killing six Asian women and two others in shootings at spas in the Atlanta area had “a bad day” previously shared a photo of racist T-shirts on social media.
In a Facebook post from April 2020, Cherokee County Sheriff’s Capt. Jay Baker shared an image of T-shirts based off the Corona beer label that said “Covid 19 IMPORTED VIRUS FROM CHY-NA.”
“Love my shirt,” Baker wrote. “Get yours while they last.'”
Baker did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but after BuzzFeed News asked about the shirt, the public Facebook post became unavailable.
