Grossly inappropriate, rude.

Complete lack of respect, whether one disagrees with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida politically, to publicly ridicule in such a unpleasant discourteous manner is ignorant and nasty.

What a tosser.

Hiroyuki Fujishiro, a professor at Hosei University who specializes in social media, said, "It is difficult to see through a shrewdly made fake video at times of emergency such as during war or natural disasters."

Professor Fujishiro, we’re not at war or suffering from the impact of a natural disaster.

Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida has a family,

Posting false information hurts democracy? LOL. A lot of fake information comes from those very democracy’s.

To treat anyone in such a degrading manner, is totally unacceptable.

To fake explicit sexual admissions in a live news broadcast said he made it in about an hour as a "little joke."

This is acceptable behavior?!

Name the coward, release his photo, let us see the sneering sniggering comedian behind the 'little joke'

This is just the beginning. 14-year olds and those with 14-year old mentalities will be copying this and make other “little jokes” even worse.

It won’t help that Musk and X has de-emphasized controlling fakes. It is essentially promoting them now to boost revenue from advertisers as more people view them out of morbid curiosity.

And then offer him a job. I swear, in this day and age, satire in the likes of “Spitting Image”, “HIGNFY” and “Yes, Minister” just wouldn’t see the light of day. People need to lighten-up.

All of those are British, but Japan does not really have a culture of satire. Even posters of politicians at election time adorne the neighborhood and remain unadulterated.

On the other hand, LDP government themselves also seem to spread political disinformation from anonymous SNS accounts.

If this guy is a satirist, then there should be no issue for him to be identified.

UK is famous for political lampooning, caricaturing political figures, Prime Minsters past and present, sometime crude, mischief making, cutting edge parody. sometimes harsh etc.

The content is crucial.

What I find excruciating, is the underlying need to debase, to demean, to defame, degrade.

This is unpleasant, distasteful in its need, not to make fun, but to cause offence, then hide. cower.

If this is an example, a peek into the future of satire, then I will pass.

@itsonlyrocknroll, @Peter Neil

So surprised to see these comments opposing political satire, which has been around for at least 2,400 years. The ancient Greek dramatist Aristophanes, sometimes called the father of comedy, satirized Athenian leaders and their conduct of the Peloponnesian War.

As @aaronagstring emphasizes, “People need to lighten-up.”

This is one of my favorite satirists, Chris Morris, 1994, before my time, unappreciated in a pram....

Dry, deadpan, witty, uncompromising, laced with sarcasm.

Some times political incorrect.

Catherine Tate not satire, equally judderingly, the complete opposite some would suggest of acceptable social attitudes.

This fake Kishida video, is not satire, the content has rather disturbing overtones, intrusive, shabby. personalized belittling.

My personal opinion, no more, no less.

Others will laugh out load.
