On October 25, the Canadian celeb shared a message.
"Unequivocally condemning all forms of hate racism and discrimination," Liu wrote on his Instagram story.
"Anti-semitism has no place in the world and regardless of the mental state of the people/persons uttering it, they must be accountable to their words."
He finished it off with some strong words:
"Let's not allow people with dangerous opinions to perpetuate hate through their massive platforms."

While Liu didn't specifically namedrop Kayne West , it appears the remarks are in relation to the recent string of racist comments the rapper has refused to apologize for, such as saying he would go "death con 3 on Jewish people."
As well as calling out antisemitism, the actor has spoken candidly about racism in Canada in his memoir We Were Dreamers: An Immigrant Superhero Origin Story .
"Now, don't get me wrong, I love Canada, and I believe that it is a tolerant place," Liu wrote. "I've loved the range of people and the diversity of experiences that I've come to know in my home country."
"But at the same time, I have been called a ch***, and I have been told to go back to China," he continued.
"Canada is not unilaterally friendly, nor is 'friendly' even something that an entire country can be. Sometimes, it feels a bit like we try to cover up our uncomfortable truths with a veneer of tolerance and inclusion," he said.
Most recently, Liu donated his winnings on Celebrity Jeopardy! to Stop AAPI Hate , a foundation committed to standing against the racism faced by Asian American Pacific Islander communities that escalated during the COVID-19 pandemic.
