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

smashing of cameras and whacking people with umbrellas was ages ago, in early Arashi days. tabloids/haters and jelly non-fans like to bring it up once in awhile just to confuse people.
him scolding a fan taking pictures in a concert was around 2006 i think.. it could be earlier but it was not during his umbrella years. i don;t think he was being mean at all for reprimanding the fan "live". it was definitely against the rules. Just for a comparison, other members also has a little history of snapping at fans who went overboard. Jun and Nino displayed their anger clearly at fans who mass-stalked them to a train station and right into their train ride. according to fan reports the one who calmed Nino when he snapped was Sho. this was in 2006. they as a group are pretty strict with their fans if they misbehave but there's no such incidents nowadays.

hahaha 'jelly non-fans'. XD;;

One of the charms of Arashi is that they are very approachable and lovable. That explain why kids and elderly ppl love them too. :)
