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.

Just the other day, I saw a pic of him and said "Wow, he looks so much older than a few years ago!" -_-

I can't tell if I feel bad for him or not. I mean, he's my age. I know the circumstances are different, and that smoking there is a regular thing, yet underage smoking in general is unbelievable to me. Plus, he shouldn't have taken pictures, shouldn't have said it was okay, and should have learned from NEWS.

I probably feel worst for the poor fans. I'm not even HSJ that much, but I hope to god this doesn't force them into hiatus while Kisumai sky-rockets to fame. History does not have to repeat itself this one time.
