Ushio Hashimoto is harassed by Dragon Ball fans
Hashimoto went to Twitter to give a strong statement about the harassment she has been suffering from Dragon Ball fans over the years and that was why she became a feminist, let’s see what she said?
”Since I started singing ”Romantic Ageru Yo”, I’ve been sexually harassed by Dragon Ball fans. They always tell me to do things like the scene where Bulma shows Master Roshi her breasts or her panties”
”I received these inappropriate scenes in my DMs and was told that I am a disgrace to Dragon Ball”
”Dragon Ball’s songs are all written by men, but I don’t think they receive any kind of blatant sexual harassment or discrimination. Some Dragon Ball fans saw my name and thought I was a man. Dragon Ball doesn’t need female singers. These are some of the blatantly discriminatory things I’ve been told”
”They twist and turn everything for their convenience. This account is probably a bunch of misogynistic idiots”
”If that means giving me a bad reputation for expressing disagreement with men who do nothing about discrimination and disdain towards women, then come on! I’m Anison’s legendary disreputable singer!”
It’s a very sad situation that Hashimoto has been going through. It is necessary to separate fiction from reality and always maintain respect above all else.
These were some reactions that the Japanese had when reading Ushio Hashimoto’s Tweets:
“I remember watching Dragon Ball when I was in kindergarten, I had a childhood aversion to characters like Master Roshi and Oolong”
“It’s so wrong to become a Twitter feminist and have a discriminatory attitude just because you were criticized by anti fans”
“Well, it must have been a bad experience, but it’s not the whole Dragon Ball fan story, although freedom of thought is important, why not express it in a way that won’t cause problems for the job?”
“I mean, if the person is a ‘feminist’, I think they would have a feeling of distaste towards that kind of scene in Dragon Ball from the beginning, wouldn’t they?”
“There may eventually be pressure to delete your statement, but I won’t forget you said it.”
