I’m breaking off from my usual AKB48 related news to report on something terrible which has happened to a young girl that’s a part of the idol group Momoiro Clover.
Reni Takangi was a healthy teenager until in March, the record company Universal Music Japan held a public weigh-in for Momoiro Clover’ members in front of their fans and reporters. They had to be a certain weight in order to debut. Unfortunately only 5 of the 6 passed and Reni was the only one to be over the weight limit. The company told her to weigh herself at the end of April. This she did and she passed the weight restriction.
However, it seems that fans have noticed that Reni has been getting thinner and thinner recently and are getting concerned that she may have an eating disorder. Judging from the photos you’re about to see, I think they have a right to be concerned. The company commented that the weigh-in was supposed to be a light hearted event. Oh I see, so now they say it was meant to be a joke without thinking how humiliating it would be for Reni in front of everybody. I’ve never heard of anything so idiotic in my time of being a J-Pop music fan and it’s angered me a lot.
The photos below are shocking to say the least especially the final photo taken this month. Please Universal Music Japan – pull this girl out of the group immediately to make sure she gets back to being healthy. You have a responsibility to look after her. You should be fuckin’ ashamed of yourself for doing this to her.
