Junya Hiramoto, the leader of a group of people who claim to have been sexually abused by the late Johnny Kitagawa, saying he and his group have become a target of online harassment.

Doesn't surprise me. And I'm willing to bet ANYTHING that the bulk of that harassment comes from the net uyoku.

That's right, no surprise here. Everyone knows for decades how the whole entertainment works. So that's by far not even ending with young or male or singers or 'Johnny'. On the whole globe you have all that and more , on a daily base. Everyone knows that the big money possibilities come at the cost or the ultra high risk of being handled or treated similar like in this publicity case.

When reality conflicts with what people want to believe, reality has to be stamped out.

You’d think the die hard fans would do anything to protect their favorites. Not attack the ones who helped bring their troubles to light

Some people are pathetic so sad.

Nothing in the declarations indicate these attacks come specifically from die hard fans, lots of people are being economically affected by the scandal and would love for everything to just be forgotten and things going back to business as usual.

Didn't the country just pass an anti-online bullying law? I think websites should have moderators (sending love) or users can flag comments that do not meet community standards and have them removed.

Time to hire some online muscle.

Knowing the diehard Johnny's fans it doesn't surprise me that this is happening. Now that many of their favorites are losing their TV commercials and maybe soon TV shows, they are worried they won't get to see them, so they attack the ones who they feel caused all of this. Pathetic.
