On Tuesday the star revealed that he's been subject to vile racist abuse since the sacking.
One person told him on Instagram earlier this month in a since deleted comment: 'Imagine bringing you 3rd worlders into the civilise world. Hope you never get work again you disgusting subhuman' (sic).
Asan replied: 'Wow. Saynotoracism. I'm bulletporrof so comments like this would never touch me. But on this occasion instead of ignoring it, why not show everyone how upside down the world is? #noroomforracism.'

The former soap star returned to social media with a defiant message earlier this month, after being sacked from Emmerdale following his awards show brawl.
The actor was seen throwing a punch at Jamie during an explosive fight in front of shocked onlookers, shouting: 'I'm going to f*****g kill you'.
Asan, who has been involved in a knife attack Emmerdale plot, could be heard shouting in a video obtained by the Mirror: 'Do you think you are a f*****g big man? I'm going to f*****g kill you. I'm going to f*****g knife you,' before attempting to take a swipe at Jamie.
After the Emmerdale actor threw the punch, I'm A Celebrity's Malique Thompson-Dwyer ran into the room to intervene and bundle Jamie out.

According to reports, the pair had to be pulled apart by security twice at the Hilton Park Lane hotel in Mayfair, London, with Asan eventually being escorted off the premises by staff at around 11pm.
Emmerdale announced that Asan had been sacked from the soap two days after footage surfaced of the brawl.
An ITV spokesperson told MailOnline: 'Emmerdale suspended Asan N'Jie yesterday pending further investigation into an incident at a central London hotel on Monday night.
'ITV executives have met with him this morning and as a consequence Asan's contract has been terminated with immediate effect.'
The 'devastated' actor issued a public apology to Jamie as well as 'the whole Emmerdale team, our audience, ITV, my family, and the organisers of the TV Choice Awards.'
