She said a car drove by and the people in it started shouting racist slurs like “ching chong,” and telling the girls to “go back to where they came from,” according to the article.
Then, one of the passengers sprayed her arm with pepper spray before the car took off, Lee said.
Lee confirmed to CNN that the incident happened in October.
“I was so mad, but there was nothing I could do or control because they skirted off,” Lee told PopSugar.
“I didn’t do anything to them, and having the reputation, it’s so hard because I didn’t want to do anything that could get me into trouble. I just let it happen.”
Olympic gold medalist Suni Lee says she was pepper-sprayed in a racist attack
