Hagar pleaded on Twitter for an end to "violence" and "prejudice," writing, "As if we don't already have enough problems with COVID-19."
In a video accompanying the message, he commented, "Why would anyone kill innocent people and take it out on the whole race, the whole society we are living in because of a bad guy? A bad cop, a bad black man, a bad white man, a bad Chinese, Japanese, Hispanic, South American — what's the difference? Why would you take it out on the whole human race — people with families and children that are innocent? There are bad guys everywhere, every walk of life. You know it. I know it. We all know it. Stop the violence. Stop racism. Prejudice. Please."
