Absurd treatment of an ‘idol’


I am a foreign student studying at Meiji University and am deeply concerned after I saw the shaved head of AKB48 member Minami Minegishi. This is absolutely absurd; even in North Korea, people have freedom to date. But I kind of understand it.

In a country where males make sexual fantasies of exploiting girls in school uniforms, what do you expect?

There is no law saying that young girls can’t have a love life in their 20s, and how dare anyone suggest that Minami’s being a professional idol allows people to abuse her with despicable words.
