AKB48′s Minegishi Minami demoted and shaves her head … and it’s fucking barbaric

AKB48‘s Minegishi Minami was recently outed by tabloid Shukan Bunshun for staying over at the house of GENERATIONS member Shirahama Alan, and I guess the AKB48 head honchos have figured out their punishment for her, which includes demoting her and shaving her head.

Shukan Bunshun reported with their latest issue published on January 31st, that AKB48 member Minegishi Minami spent a night at the house of GENERATION member Shirahama Alan. Now, on AKB48’s official blog, it was announced that she will be demoted to Kenkyuusei starting on February 1, 2013.

It also says that they will announce further details on Minegishi’s activities when it’s decided.

I am very sorry for worrying the members, you fans, staff members, my family, and many people for the article about me on a weekly magazine that will be released today.

As the first generation member of AKB48 that was formed back in 2005, I was supposed to be in the position where I always had to act as a role model for the junior members. However, what I have done was such a thoughtless and a lack of self-awareness behavior.

Since my mind is still in blank, I did not know what to do or what I can do, but as I just saw the magazine, I could not sit still, so I decided all by myself to shave my head without even telling the members or my agency.

I do not expect that I would be forgiven by doing this, but what I first thought was that I did not want to quit AKB48.

I was unable to think of leaving AKB48 now where the members I love and spent my youth together, and you warm fans are. I know this is being over‐optimistic, but I want to stay as Minegishi Minami of AKB48 if possible.

It was all my fault about this. I am very sorry.

I will leave everything to Akimoto-sensei’s and the management’s judgement. Though I haven’t been able to sort out my feelings, I just wanted to tell you how I was feeling right now.

Thank you.

Okay, first of all, I’m not a fan of her, so I have no inherent emotional reaction to this. However, as a HUMAN FUCKING BEING, how the fuck is this allowed?

Holy shit, she’s 20 and she maybe fucked a guy or is dating a guy, so she shaves her head and gets shitted on all the way back down to trainee? I mean, wow, how delusional do fans have to be to believe that she belongs to them?

It doesn’t matter to me whether or not she shaved her head or they made her do it. Either way, it’s bullshit, because they either forced her to humiliate herself or she choose to humiliate herself because she’s been brainwashed into believing it’s the appropriate response and that she knows what’s coming if she doesn’t make herself seem sympathetic/remorseful.

It’s fucking ridiculous. Anybody who can watch that video or just look at her and think that’s appropriate punishment is a gigantic piece of shit. Worse yet, they put it on their official channel for everybody to gawk at (including me), so the company absolutely endorses this bullshit.

I feared that she would be demoted or kicked out or burned in effigy, but this is honestly probably the worst thing I’ve seen happen to an idol, and if there’s something worse, I can’t think of it right now. Why? Because it’s an in-your-face visual representation of all the bullshit that surrounds being an idol in Japan and what the wota/otaku fucks make them go through.

Fuck you wotas, fuck you “fans”, fuck you delusional assholes. Look at the culture you created. Fucking idiots.

Disgusting.
