Takeshi Tsuruno: “I Want the Voices of the Proponents to be Heard.”
On July 15, entertainer Takeshi Tsuruno (40) tweeted that there are too many stories saying “We oppose!” He said the following: “Whenever I watch the news, I see the opinions and voices of opponents. Both opponents and proponents share the same belief in peace. They share the same ideology opposing war. But because this is an important issue, I would like to think about it more fairly and without the overly emotional or simplistic views of the youth.” After he tweeted the message, there were some who supported him and said that his opinion was understandable. However, many others claimed that this tweets indicated that he supports the security legislation and he was accordingly criticized by opponents of the legislation. Tsuruno has four children and known for being a very good father. He famously took child care leave in 2013 when he had his fourth child.
