A Japanese politician attacks TWICE for Dahyun's comfort women shirt

AKP STAFF
TWICE, Dahyun
A Japanese politician is attacking TWICE for a shirt that Dahyun wore.

On November 13, Japanese politician Onodera Masaru shared a past airport photo of Dahyun from September 2017. The idol star is captured in a shirt supporting comfort women victims. 

'Comfort women' refers to Korean women who were forced into sex slavery for the Japanese soldiers during World War II. 


Onodera Masaru tweeted, "BTS is not going on NHK's 'K?haku Uta Gassen.' This is good news but there's another bad incident. This is a 'comfort women' shirt. The profit from the shirt is being inappropriately used for Korea's 'comfort women' movement. I have reported the issue to NHK."




'Marymond', the brand behind the shirt that Dahyun wore, designs products and content in support of the comfort women victims. 


The Japanese politician's tweet gained over 15K retweets as of this writing. Right-wing Japanese netizens are demanding TWICE to be removed from  'K?haku Uta Gassen' lineup. 

On the other hand, Korean netizens are reacting with anger to the politician's tweet. Comments stated, "Why are they tackling this now? This is nonsense," "They don't even have the right to be mad. Korean women are the victims," "Japan just needs to stop," "They're going too far now. Don't mess with the comfort women victims."

Meanwhile, NHK recently confirmed TWICE attendance at this year's 'K?haku Uta Gassen.' The announcement has upset right-wing Japanese netizens

Because it's terrible to support rape victims. There's nothing worse than these jingoistic right wingers. They're almost always old, misogynistic bigots.
