Yesterday’s Flying Get handshake event has seen a couple of incidents which has pissed off some of the AKB48 members.
Tomomi Kasai was not a happy bunny judging by her tweets as many of the people that came to shake her hand said she was ‘ero’. I thought Kasai would be delighted that her fans see her as being sexy but it seems the word ‘ero’ is more of a vulgar expression in Japan and being called this word today hurt her feelings a lot. Kasai also seemed to think that she’s done something bad to be called ‘ero’.
Reina Fujie is another member that wasn’t happy at being called Uzareinyan at the event. This word means ‘Annoying Reina’. She has threatened though that if she’s called that again at today’s handshake event she will ignore the fans.
The worst incident happened to Sayaka when a male fan gave her the middle finger and made her angry. Seriously, you do not want to piss Sayaka off. Sayaka laughed it off at first but after security pulled the fan away he continued to stare at her before running away still giving her the middle finger. His friend who was next in line to see Sayaka got a mouthful from her and it got so loud that other people in the distance could hear her berate the fan. She told him to tell his friend to come and apologise. The offending fan did come back in the end and Sayaka gave him a right rollocking until he apologised. This he did and Sayaka was quite happy to shake hands with him after that so it all ended with smiles but why did the idiot want to give Sayaka the middle finger in the first place. Did she refuse to do something for him?
There’s a couple of withdrawals from today’s handshake event:
Haruka Shimada isn’t feeling very well so she won’t be turning up and even Sae has been forced to withdraw due to illness so her 3rd – 6th session has been cancelled.
EDIT: Another AKB48 member has cancelled 2 handshake sessions due to being unwell. This time it’s Yuko. I wonder if it’s her back trouble flaring up again?
