Someone is looking for big money I guess

Someone is looking for big money I guess

Yeah it’s not like she’d care that her daughter is dead or anything. Must be money right?

She filed a complaint with a broadcast ethics watchdog --I would think any parent would do the same.

Look homie...

japanese entertainment tv shows are lame and boring... for real.

She took he life because of  cyber-bullying, nothing to deal with the show.

And yes, these kind of tv show are staged.

So, i don't see the connection between her death and the tv show. Why not going after those who bullied her online?

Also... i could add... she failed as a mother to protect her child... even thoo she was 22 years old... but it's inappropriate to say so.

Specifically, which parts of the mothers filing did you have issue with?

Because you do realize that to sue someone, you need to lay out that connection, right? And therefore, this information does exist right?

Really? It's self evident to me.

The poor girl was bullied online over "acting" which may have been scripted or at least coached. People take the shows seriously because they believe the shows are "real" because the shows advertise themselves as "reality". What's more is that she may have been under contractual obligation to not reveal the truth. That means she was denied the chance to actually defend herself online. What people did was like believing Casey Affleck is a real murderer and rapist because they saw the movie "Killer Inside Me". And that was how the operators wanted it.

The truth about “reality”TV shows should be made very public so as to inform everyone that theyre just another form of scripted story telling. That way far fewer “fans” would take it seriously enough to get emotionally involved and bully the actors.

Bingo, spot on!

The type of change is desperately needed to protect people from those who seek to exploit them for profit (the producers of Terrace House) or bully them online (the so-called fans) has to come from someone who is willing to step up and state the case. Who better than her mother?

The young, aspiring models, actors, sports figures and entrepreneurs (usually unknowns) who likely hope for some exposure, a career boost and perhaps (however naively) love on the show need to better understand what they're getting into.

They need to go into it knowing that the footage shot will be manipulated, the comedians commenting on the story developments will feed the the actions of the fans, and that everything is contrived and designed for click bait and ratings. (Lauren Tsai of the Aloha State series has spoken out about this.)

The "stars" of the show need to understand that they are participating in a type of farce and have teams of mental health supporters available to deal with the wider world appearing on their social media platforms to castigate them for imagined misdemeanors. They need to be taught that it isn't something they should respond to or take to heart. That might have prevented an unnecessary suicide of a lovely young woman way over her head in hatred with no one to shield or counsel her. Heartbreaking.

Participants are acting on-camera in a combination of their genuine selves and that which is guided by the show.

"Reality TV" is anything but; an oxymoron.
