90 Day Fiance: The Other Way OG Deavan Clegg is worried about Taeyang’s safety amid the increasing number of hate crimes in the country. The ex-wife of Jihoon Lee fears that her son might suffer the same fate as his fellow Asian-Americans who have been the target of violent attacks recently.

Deavan Clegg’s maternal instincts kicked in following reports of a surge in Asian-American hate crimes. The 90 Day Fiance alum took to Instagram and expressed her concern following the horrific shooting in Georgia.

Deavan shared her sympathy to the victims of the senseless killings. The reality star said her “heart is absolutely broken,” calling the attack “absolutely awful.”

The 90 Day Fiance mom added that she fears for her son’s safety as hate crimes continue to soar. “My son being Asian-American, this terrifies me,” Deavan said.

“My prayers go out to those who lost their lives,” she added. “I hope this is a wake up call. So many Asian-Americans have been attacked and lost their lives. Words cannot describe how horrible this is.”

On March 16, a deadly mass shooting at three spas in the Atlanta area left eight people dead — six of which were Asian women. The 21-year-old suspect was charged with eight counts of murder and one count of aggravated assault in connection with the shootings.

Deavan excited for son’s birthday

Meanwhile, time flies fast for Deavan Clegg as her youngest child, Taeyang Scuti Lee is about to turn one. The 90 Day Fiance star couldn’t help but gush at her and Jihoon Lee’s son, who will celebrate his first birthday in the next couple of months.

Deavan shared an adorable photo of Taeyang looking like a big boy. She seemed nostalgic as she looked back at their journey together. “My little man is getting so big,” she captioned the picture. “[I] can’t believe we’ve been back in America for almost a year, and you’ll be two in just one month! Stop growing! I love you.”

It’s unclear if the 90 Day Fiance celeb will throw a big party for Taeyang. With the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, it’ll likely be just a simple family affair.

Taeyang turning one soon also means that Jihoon Lee has not seen him for almost a year now. 90 Day Fiance fans couldn’t help but feel sorry for the South Korean dad who continues to fight for his rights as a father.

Fans were quick to show their support for Jihoon, especially now that his son’s birthday is drawing near. Some took to Deavan’s comment section and demanded her to allow Jihoon to see Taeyang on his special day.
