Harumi Inoue Stops Reporting on Earthquakes on Her Blog
On April 18th, Harumi Inoue announced that she will stop reporting about the earthquakes from Kumamoto due to the slurs that came up from some people on the Internet.
Inoue has been living in Kumamoto with her family and was affected by the recent earthquakes that struck there. Between April 16th and 18th, she reported about the desparate situations in her blog, Vida Simple. A couple of people on the Internet criticised her blog posts. One of the criticisms was: “you are not the only one who wants to complain.” In her last blog post, which was posted on April 18th, she wrote that this would be the end of the report, and that she could not bear anymore hardships than these. She is desperate. Her blog has not been updated since April 18th.
