wait why is everyone blaming johnny and not those two for leaving?

i mean if johnny were to hold them back then the fans will be pissed at him for forcing the two guys to stay but when he said ok to their decisions he gets a F U?

some fans are hard to please....

this is only my idea, but i think the reason why some are blaming Johnny is that, he could have prevented this from happening if he really wanted to. he is THE Johnny and he calls the shots anyway. but honestly, i'm happy that he did not stop the two from leaving.

I kind of saw it coming. Got a friend who's madly fan of NEWS and she's been complaining for over a year on how the group was being pushed back... I guess the recent rise of Kanjani didn't help at all, and YamaPi kind of looks like he didn't want to be in there anymore...

I guess those rumors that were posted a few days ago, were concerning to NEWS.

I am not surprised, sad because they were the first Johnnys I liked, but that's it. It was also a given that if one of those two decided to leave the other would leave, too. What I don't understand is why people are so keen on finding a scapegoat.
In any case, I wish them all to succeed in their now separate careers.

i really really hope that yamapi won't follow jin's steps and go to america because seriously dude IT WONT' WORK! he's overly rated actor and not even that good of a singer! and no, I don't hate him i actually like and yamapi is one of the reasons i got into Johnys ^^

i wasn't as emotionally invested in them as i used to be and i think we all saw it coming but this still sucks. news was like the first johnnys group i got really familiar with apart from kinki kids. i'll always be fond of them.

i will forever take delight in saying happy bathday.

people blaming Johnny are obviously suffering from Fangirl Denial Syndrome.

Didn`t really follow NEWS all that much, but hurting for the fans all the same. Unfortunately nothing really surprising here. :|
nlovers 7th-Oct-2011 01:51 pm (UTC) many delusional fangirls blaming JE in here and over at news community....

those who said that yamapi and nishikido are happy with news are clearly blind or deeply in denial...
