I think the main problem here is not about being Haafu. I'm guessing the problem lies with the person having a darker skin. In Japan, there are many haafu celebrities and people love and adore them, especially those with fair skin. Imagine if someone with fair skin like Maggy, Darenogare Akemi, Lola (Bangladeshi blood), etc., won the competition, people would scream kawaii and adore her as goddess. My Japanese friends told me while they do not disapprove a half-Indian Miss Japan, they do feel weird when seeing seeing someone with a dark skin being awarded Miss Japan. Actually Yoshikawa has fairer skin than Ariana Miyamoto. But when Miyamoto was on the stage, I know some people may have thought are Japanese black? Because a Miss Japan is someone who represents the country and the people. That's why some people cannot accept that. Lastly, someone said it here right. Most Japanese are not really talking about this. It is the gaikokujin and media talking non-stop about all this racial and discrimination issue. Just let it rest.

This is a tough and sad one. He is throwing away his precious life at such a young age. I'd rather put him in jail forever even though I feel for those who died because of his stupidity.

Fantastic! Elegant and beautiful. Agree, miles better than that face-wrap Viet designer's carpet-look-alike wear.

what if becky committed suicide because of this? I think her haters would have forgiven her in the first place. she made the mistake and paid for it heavily. now, let her repent and forget about whether coming back or not, let's just move on for now.

That's why do we have to pay a dumb fee for a channel for those who don't even watch it, meaning to pay to someone who act like a scumbag that takes no interest in their employee's well-being? No thank you. They really think they can do what they want.

Those who agreed to this poll are clueless. If you are not born and raised in Asia, grew up in China and South Korea, even Southeast Asia, you will never understand. You don't agree because you simply do not understand and do not care, that's why you agree with this poll that you are sick of hearing calls from C and SK. But those of us who disagree understand why this has to be done. Even western countries are calling Japan to make the proper apology. Why is that so? Because they understand and know what's going on. Look at Abe, the leader of the country, do you think he is really sorry? Lastly, put yourself in those people's shoes, imagine someone in your family was killed by JP during WWII, do you think it is really that easy to forgive and forget? Here we are talking about thousands of people being killed and then the aggressor pretends like they didn't do anything wrong. Please think about it. Murakami is spot on, even as a Japanese.

Wc626, agree with you on the venue. The concert was booked a year ago before he became famous. The tickets are like 6000yen each and with his status now no way with that price. it is better to cancel the concert and pay the penalty and do it again next time with a better payout. I didn't make this up, by the way.
