are morning musume racist, or is it all a lot of fuss over nothing?

Two members of popular Japanese girl group Morning Musume are receiving a lot of heat in Korea for a photo that was recently uploaded to Tanaka Reina’s blog.

The photo (seen above) depict both Kamei Eri and Tanaka Reina with a Miley Cyrus-esque slanted eye pose, and the words written on their blog underneath the photo stated that they’re mimicking Koreans.

The girls have received a lot of heat from Japanese netizens, with comments such as: “This is not good,” “This is gonna cause problems,” and “Delete it soon.”

The post has since been deleted from the blog, as they probably realized their mistake. It was an especially odd choice considering that most East Asians, including the Japanese, have similar eyes. The post was also somewhat of a surprise to many, as Morning Musume are known to love many things Korean, along with Korean celebrities.

this next little nugget of coolness comes from my freind shirow over at where he had this to add to his very cool take on events [please read his site it makes me laugh so hard i pee]

While were on the subject of offending people, can anyone recall the opening to ’2006 wonderful hearts land’?

EVERYONE in Hello! Project walks onto stage doing Nazi salutes into the crowd. HILARIOUS.

Watch the full video here! so funny!

i personnally think they were having a little fun, and although maybe a little misguided we have to remmember that they are only young, and recism isnt really about pulling faces is it.
