Is this the ‘proper way’ to wear a face mask if you’re a Chinoy?
In line with the public advisory to wear face masks due to the Coronavirus breakout, a Chinoy (Chinese Filipino) man jokes that he needs to wear his face mask this way to also avoid “discrimination and negative reactions” from people.
The current Corona Virus that reportedly originated from China has people all over the world discriminating against Chinese nationals. In some cases, people have reportedly thrown objects and even spit on Chinese nationals.

Various memes about Chinese and even Chinese-looking people coughing in public have also made rounds on the internet.
“When you come across a Chinese who starts coughing.”
“When you are eating at your favorite Chinese restaurant and someone from the kitchen coughs.”
“When you work with Chinese people and someone coughs…”
“When a person with almond eyes and fair skin coughs, but speaks Filipino.”
