Yamapi apologises to fans, NEWS fans still hate him



Johnny’s talent Tomohisa Yamashita talked to his fans about leaving NEWS, reports Infoseek.

While shooting a TV appearance on music show “HEY! HEY! HEY!” on February 19, Yamashita shared his thoughts with the fans in the studio.

“It’s my first time after leaving NEWS so I am nervous, but I also really feel that safety the members gave me when they were with me.”

It has been reported Yamashita continued to explain the situation to his fans.

“I’m sorry. I know there might be fans who I’ve hurt but we didn’t separate as the result of a fight. We decided to grow in our own way so please don’t cry.”

Finally, the Johnny’s star said he was optimistic about the future of both parties, commenting, “I want to work towards a brighter and fun future with all of you, and those guys, and to do that I want to put everything I have into polishing up my skills, and continue to put smiles on your faces. I hope that you’ll come with me.”

It has been reported a number of fans in the crowd started crying. After the shoot, Yamashita came down and shook hands with every fan as they left. Some fans commented with, “I’ll always be his fan” and “I will support him”.

However, Cyzowoman reports a lot of fans were still unsatisfied. Some comments included:

“Didn’t he leave them? Get your act together. You wanted to do something right. Do you know how much you hurt the members and the fans? I wish he wouldn’t say stuff like this now.”

“Honestly, why now?? Just when things had settled down and NEWS were about to make a new start, why did he want to bring the topic back up?”

“Cruel! The four of them are working hard together so stop talking about NEWS!!”

The sad thing is that anything Yamapi says or does now comes out as negative to some fans. It may be an indication as to how difficult it will be for him to win back their trust...

LOL,you're never going to stay in any fandoms then, because this sort of fan are everywhere, in EVERY single fandom. You don't choose people/fans

Then again, if you're a fan, you're there for the subject of the fandom : books, actors, band, group,TV show whatev, ...Not because of the fan.

but sometimes it also depends on the percentage, if the percentage of immature/scary fans is too high, you might be forced to be a in the closet fan.

...But don't say then that you're a NewS fan or leaving the fandom because of the fans lol. You're leaving because you only liked Yamapi in them, and therefore see no need to stay. Not because of the fans attitude...
