Nanao was invited over as a guest on Kis-My-Ft2's show Kis-My Busaiku? (FUJI) and received a lot of heat on Twitter from fans.
There was a VTR segment where the members were showing "How to choose swimsuits for your girlfriend". Nanao was instructed by the program staff to "make a lot of comments", and did so by saying comments like, "Yeah, yeah, that one is nice!", "The girl would be touched if she knew that the boyfriend showed that much concern", "It's nice that you're thinking about it that much", "Smart!", "That's pretty nice!", while watching the VTR. These comments didn't even drown the original audio from the VTR.
Apparently, some fans were quick to voice their feelings on Twitter:
"All the other guests on this show have always been silent, but Nanao's too noisy."
"I can't stand Nanao. She's too noisy. Please shut up."
"I'll be honest, sorry Nanao-san. I can't stand you. I get irritated just by watching. What are you trying to do by talking like that while the VTR is playing? Okubo-san just kept silent, you know?"
Some fans went to the extent to attack her Twitter account and say:
"I think it would be better if you stayed silent while the VTR was playing. Honestly speaking, I had a hard time watching this episode"
Nanao reacted to this and tweeted:
"The show staff instructed me to "make a lot of comments", so I just did my job. I cannot ignore the instructions of the program's staff."
"I'm not mad at the fact that you were talking during the VTR, but what I meant was your voice was so loud, I wasn't even able to hear the audio of the VTR anymore. How about learning to control the volume of your voice?"
"I'm going to look up to Kayoko Okubo-san! I won't raise my voice and remove my pin microphone next time!"
"Never ever come back. You're getting ahead of yourself. Keep your hands off Kis-My, got it?"
"Don't worry! I won't lay a finger on them!"
Some fans though expressed their support:
"I really respect (you) Nanao-san for responding properly to the crticism aimed towards you. I understand your difficulty. I really came to like you a lot more after seeing how you dealt with the situation!!! I'll keep on rooting for you!"
"I'm a Kis-My fan, but I enjoyed this episode, and it didn't feel unpleasant at all! It was fresh since the guest was Nanao-san who's the same age as the group! Please keep up the good work!"
"Nanao-san, I was surprised that you received this amount of heat. I got surprised after searching for it. But you were just doing your job. Now I'm the one who feels sorry for you. Sorry about that (´･_･`)"
