Sakurai Sho caught being rude to fans at train station

On March 11th, around the time of last year’s Tohoku Earthquake, Sakurai Sho visited residents of the Aizuwakamatsu area of Fukushima, in order to tape a broadcasting of Nippon’s Television “Fukkou Terebi Minna no Chikara”.

At the taping, Sakurai was mostly without smiles, from beginning to end, only endowed with a serious face. Viewers who watched the program were apparently heart-torn at his demeanor. A few hours later after the taping, Sakurai was allegedly sighted at a Tokyo train station.

“It was around 10 P.M. when the Shinkansen arrived,” claims a train passenger. “Fangirls, who somehow found out the information he was going to be there there, were already waiting”.

That day Sakurai, due to being in a disguise of only wearing a cap, was quickly exposed.

“When he started down the stairs heading quickly to the ticket barrier, a ton of fangirls crowded around him. In the next moment, Sho-kun gave the girls a sharp look as if to say ‘don’t talk to me’”.

Instead of shaking hands or signing autographs, Sakurai only appeared to show a glaring face as if he was giving a threatening look to them. Then, when he saw a fan with a camera phone in her hand, a surprising outburst occurred.

A passenger who happened to be present claims that, “[Sakurai] shouted ‘don’t take pictures!’ at the girl and knocked the cellphone that she was holding out her hand. He did it with a lot of force so when the cellphone hit the ground the place went into an uproar. A color of distinct terror oozed out of that girl’s face.”

Without even caring about the fallen phone, Sakurai allegedly went to the exit at full speed. Even after having his ticket examined, his anger didn’t subside.

“While saying ‘stop’, he just kept brushing off the fangirl’s hands while walking. In the end he knocked down about 5 cellphones. He didn’t even give some sort of apology.”

sorry if this posted multiple times, mods. my internet is currently sharting on itself. >_<

Well, they're not allowed to take pictures of him, so I can see why he'd react like that, even if he was rude. But it was also 10PM, he was probably knackered and shit. I can totally understand his behaviour and I'm not even an Arashi fangirl. :/

Not a JE fan at all, but even less a fan of obtrusive fans. Nobody wants to be stalked.

I'm not much of a Sho fan, but give the guy some personal space.
If you've had a bad day, the last thing you probably want are noisy girls surrounding you taking pictures.

Not excusing his behavior, just pointing out that he's human and people shouldn't take this too seriously.

IA. It's douchy to knock their phones to the ground, but saying someone's a douche after not reacting in full sparkle mode after a tiring day of work is ridiculous.

iirc johnny's can't get their pictures taken unless it's in a controlled environment or something. =/ something about selling bromides and stuff like that.

IKR. While you're just like knocking off, want to get home for rest, suddenly you get swarmed by people who shove their phones in your face while snapping photos (and most likely were yelling your name too). Annoying is annoying.

Good point :) Though of course, Sho is a public figure so he has to more or less control his temper (if this is true, that is).
