Jujutsu Kaisen animator is criticized for drawing a “racist” gesture towards Asians
The drawing in question shows Satoru Gojou and Shoko Ieiri mocking Suguru Geto making the ” fox eyes ” gesture or the famous ” slanted eye ” with many people describe the appearance of Asians. Anyway, see for yourself:
The Jujutsu Kaisen animator deleted the tweet after receiving that barrage of negative comments, and made a new illustration to apologize to his followers:
As you can see above, the drawing shows Gojou apologizing for the gesture considered racist towards Asians. Only people still didn’t like it, causing him to apologize in earnest by saying, ”I’m sorry for my ignorance. I’m sorry. From now on I will keep my tweets in line”.
