Why Harm Idols?
Hey guys, hope everyone is doing great. I had no plans on doing a blog today, well change that I did plan to do a blog just not on this topic. I will give you a heads up this post wont have to many facts because it will mostly just be my opinion but enough ranting and lets get started. So I was checking Anime News Network like I often due and today I ran across a story that I am starting to see way to many of and that is a Idol being threaten. This story was about a man threatening the voice actress Sumire Uesaka. I will never understand how you can send death threats to someone who you claim to be a fan of, especially sending threats when you have zero logical reason to do so. Im a fan of the Korean rapper CL when she came to Atlanta her ticket prices were a bit out of my range but you didnt see me saying i wanted to harm her over something that small that really had no affect on me. So after reading this I decided to search the database to just see how many of these stories were there, I was surprised by the amount I found. There was the story where a 22 year old student threaten to beat voice actress Suzuko Mimori to death, the story where a 39....yes 39 year old man threatened voice actress Satomi Satou because he felt she ignored him during her concert, the story where voice actress and singer Inori Minase had to cancel events due to threats and last but not least the story where a 32 again yes 32 year old man was arrested for threats that he wanted to kill voice actress Nana Mizuki saying that he wanted to kill her because he emailed her saying that he wanted to meet her and she ignored him...as she should have. Something really has to be done about the harassment, maybe you could have the voice actors and idols just have fan pages on social media instead of allowing fans access to their personal pages, and also during events such as meet and greets they may have to have security pat people does especially the males. Sorry to go off on a rant this is just something that bothers me every-time i read one of the stories because im always shocked at how obsessed some fans can be because they dont understand that the people and yes they are people are doing a job and while they enjoy making fans happy they are not someone you can own. MAHO OUT!
