General Hospital actress Tabyana Ali is speaking out about the racism she’s facing online.

“To anyone that hates me. That’s absolutely fine,” the Hollywood star wrote on X on June 9. “I don’t know you and you don’t me but regardless I’m sending you peace, safety, and prosperity… I also pray you touch some grass, see the sun, eat a delicious meal, and find something to do. Peace and love.”

According to Deadline, Ali vented on social media after she recently faced racist attacks from strangers on the internet.

“Okay this is the last time I’m going to speak on this today but we cannot be feeding in to peoples hate,” she said. “We cannot be giving it back. We cannot stoop to rude/racist people’s level. It doesn’t help. We are fighting too many wars as it is. I believe we will have our world peace.”

At the same time, the 22-year-old actress admits she has doubts about the best way to handle racism.

“But we got to find another way to fight. I’ve realized ignoring doesn’t help but neither does giving the energy back,” she said. “We’re going in circles and that doesn’t get us anywhere. Everybody might not agree with me but thats okay. I just want to let ‘those’ people know, I see you.”

Speaking to the people who are spreading hate, Ali urged them to start looking at life from a different perspective.

“And Im sorry that this is the away you feel like you have to be seen,” she wrote. “I’m sorry that life isn’t happening how you want. But if you found something you loved to do other than hurting people. You would never have the energy to say what you’ve been saying to people.”

Many of Ali’s fans and colleagues are showing support; Maura West, who plays Ava on General Hospital, described Ali as a “shining example of the best of humanity.”

“I love you, Tabyana,” West wrote on X. “I admire your strength and loving, open heart.

Lydia Look, who plays Selina Wu on General Hospital, also showed love to Ali.

“Love! You go sis. Show them what you’re made of. Pure Love, that’s what,” she tweeted


According to Soap Hub, Ali joined the General Hospital cast in 2022, replacing Sydney Mykayla in the role of Trina.
