Leong also took to the Instagram post to respond, saying: "We have such a long way to go as a nation, if we think racism doesn't exist. Thank you for being an ally, a friend and an awesome work husband. ❤️."
She also shared it to her personal Instagram, fixing the troll's grammar. "I couldn't help myself," she said. "I had to mark this one up. Grammar is the difference between knowing your shit, and knowing you're shit, Graham."
This isn't the first time Leong has spoken out against racism in Australia. Speaking on Sharon Johal's podcast, We Are The Real Ones, she opened up about wanting "to be understood" as an Australian woman of Chinese-Singaporean descent.
"Look, it's not curing cancer by any means, but each and every one of us and our stories and our backgrounds matter," she said. "Diversity to me means inclusivity. It means even representation for all walks of life — for the able and the differently-abled, for everyone from different parts of the world who speak different languages to be understood, to be seen, to be valued and not to be overlooked."
Leong also opened up her experiences with Asian fetishisation, telling HuffPost Australia: “As a woman of Asian origin, it’s a daily onslaught of fetishistic comments from strangers about your appearance and sexuality, and if I’m asked, ‘But where are you really from?’ one more time, I might explode."
"When you’re outgoing and you’re Asian and you’re a female, people go, ‘Oh that’s awesome, I’ve totally got yellow fever’. Well that’s really disgusting.”
