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

Underage Smoking Scandal

On June 28, 2011, Japanese entertainment magazine Shunkan Josei published a story revealing that Morimoto was caught smoking a cigarette on camera. Images from the issue shows him smoking at 14 in January 2010 and at 15 in May 2010. When questioned, Morimoto stated that "It's fine, don't worry." There wasn't any response from the other members of Hey! Say! JUMP or from Johnny Kitagawa himself about Morimoto's status with the group.[2]
