Japanese celebrities to have social media activities monitored following anti-gangster legislation

Media outlets employing Japanese entertainers are set to monitor their social media activities following the enactment of anti-gangster legislation, one industry insider tells Yukan Fuji (Oct. 1).

A representative for a television station believes that anti-gang legislation that started on October 1 and prohibits ordinary citizens from doing business transactions with gangsters will result in careful monitoring of the activities of celebrities to ensure compliance.

“A thorough examination of all potential entertainers will be required prior to employment,” the executive says, “and statements defending yakuza will not be permitted.”

In August, television personality Shinsuke Shimada resigned from show business after it was revealed that he had a relationship with an upper member of the Yamaguchi-gumi, Japan’s largest criminal organization.

Since Shimada’s resignation, Japan Racing Association revoked the license of horse trainer Michifumi Kono for alleged ties to the Yamaguchi-gumi and the Kameda Gym received a warning regarding gangsters attending boxing matches.

“Any support displayed for Shimada will not be allowed either,” the insider says. “The checking of blogs and Twitter feeds will not be excluded.”

Well...I guess they all have rather pretty tattoos, unlike most of the gangsters here?

Well, this is Big Brother-y. But since the entertainment business is run by the yakuza/run through shady, mafia-like practices, I doubt this legislation will actually affect anything.

And the bras in that picture are cracking me up, ngl.

if i was a yakuza i'd try to wear a more kick ass bra, but that's just me

something that says "i will kill you and burn down your house" not "99 cent bin"

Was just thinking this too, bb. Even if he was, I'm sure he'd be smart about it and I'm forever reminded of this, lol:

I've always loved/wanted yakuza tattoos. Based on my romanticized notions of the Yakuza, I'd totally join. But being a black female, they probably wouldn't let me. :/

So basically agencies and TV stations are taking preemptive measures that will help them cover their asses and deal with problems (should they want to) and also interfere with any actual future police investigations on the matter? Not surprised...
