Her Personal life
Since the age 13 years old, Chloe has received racist and hateful messages. She has stated that people denigrated her accomplishments because she was Asian after the 2014 Winter X Games. My DMs contained messages telling me to return to China and stop taking away medals from white American girls. My accomplishment was amazing, but instead of being proud, I was crying next to my mother, asking, “Why are people so mean because my mom is Asian?” Kim spoke out about anti-Asian violence in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. She told ESPN.com that she was so proud of her accomplishment, but instead, she was crying next to my mom, asking, “Why are people being so mean because I’m Asian?” I am scared all the times. She said, “I don’t go alone unless I have to make an appointment quickly or if it is very crowded.” I always have a knife, pepper spray, and Tasers. My fanny pack contains all three items, and I have them with me everywhere.
