Update on HSJ and making headlines everywhere

Hey!Say! underage member smoking, entertainment activities stopped indefinitely

Official statement:
Today, there are some news articles, which we validated with Morimoto Ryutaro himself. He admits that he has smoked out of curiosity on several occassions before. Although he is very sorry for his behaviour and in self-scrutiny, however underage smoking as a violation of the law is common knowledge and an unacceptable behaviour. Our company has always placed emphasis on educating them in this regard. To face the facts, from now on, Morimoto will cease all of his activities in the entertainment field indefinitely.
We sincerely apologize for the trouble caused to all fans and related persons.
-Johnnys Jimusho

they aren't putting him to Junior status? there's a chance he'll be back if its just 'probation'. poor Ryu, it happened so fast, now he isn't with HSJ anymore.

Kusano and Uchi were pretty much lower than junior status. They were placed as "trainees".

When it comes to breaking laws, JE is harsh on their idols esp if they are underage.

makes me think if its Yamada, and he gets cut off in just hours, fandom will totally be in hysterics.
