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

Don't know this group or fandom at all, but what I'm getting out of this, is that if you smoke while underage and a photo gets leaked of it, you lose your career? lol k

Not exactly, but Johnny pimped this kids out like the new generation. They're squeaky and clean and innocent.

Smoking little boys kills the dreams of shotacons/housewives everywhere.

Ohh, okay. I just thought it was harsh, I mean, not like he was smoking pot or something, but if their image is squeaky-clean, I can see why now.

It's a far less tame than the Golden Age of the juniors where they were one towel closer to a dick slip.

I wish i could find the more fucked up ones :(

Did I write far less? I meant far more. Oi vey.

Ah, skinny teenage boys of skin and bones are not sexually attractive at all. Maybe to shotacons and perverts but I prefer meat and a 5 oclock shadow. lol

I guess idols in Japan also sell their good moral image...
cuizy 28th-Jun-2011 02:06 am (UTC)
So what I'm getting out of these johnnys scandals is that good looking ppl almost never have good morals..... O_o
j_linker444 28th-Jun-2011 02:23 am (UTC)
I didn't say people who get involved are 100% without good morals... its just that you are already somewhat 'marked' / prejudiced by the public in the future.
cuizy 28th-Jun-2011 02:45 am (UTC)
hmmm..... i mean it's not like smoking underage = instant bad morals.... it's just I'm kind of disappointed by these boys that have it all.... and only need to restrain themselves in certain areas to continue in the industry.....yet failing to

underaged smoking is still against Japan's law, and J&A don't tolerate law-breaking however small...
