The American-style chivalry of a US sailor stationed in Japan who beat up two strangers who had the temerity to insult his Japanese girlfriend has been earning much admiration online.

The incident occurred at Motomachi-Chūkagai Station in Yokohama’s Chinatown district at 6AM on Sunday morning, where a 24-year-old petty officer serving with the US Navy in Okinawa was on the platform with his girlfriend.

A pair of 27-year-old Japanese part time workers began an altercation with him, at which point he assaulted them, causing them injuries of varying severity, including a broken nose.

The sailor claims the two men were drunk and started to insult his Japanese girlfriend – “they insulted her in unforgivable ways, so I became angry” – causing him to lose his temper and beat them down.

Police arrested him at the scene and have charged him with assault.

What exactly they said to her to enrage him so has not been revealed, although there is some suspicion they were impugning her honour for being with either a foreign barbarian or, worse yet, a US serviceman.

There has been a forgiving reaction from that great bastion of tolerance and international goodwill which is the Japanese Internet:

“Not guilty.”


“Give him a break, I’d do the same in his position.”

“Wait, aren’t you guys always calling girls who open their legs for foreigners bitches and fleshpots?”

“Even 2 on 1 the yank whoops them. As expected of our white pig masters.”

“A US soldier who’s really looking out for his girl! Wonderful!”

“Pretty cool, I bet his girl is pleased, if not moist.”

“Not much point in taking the half-baked insults of drunks seriously. Best just to ignore them.”

“They probably called her a ‘bitch’ or something [lately popular amongst Japanese but with the meaning of ‘slut’]. A yank could understand that so no wonder he flipped.”

“Were this pair really Japanese, to be picking a fight with an American like that?”

“The soldier is in the right. Of course you’d be angry if someone insults your girlfriend.”

“Any girl would fall for someone doing this!”

“They probably learned ‘bitch’ off the Internet and tried it on his girl, not really surprising he lost it.”

“Perhaps ‘how much did you pay for her?’ or ‘whores like you shame the Japanese’?”

“Some scumbag part-time losers who think they can go around insulting strangers, then play the victim card when they get called out on it.”

“When you see some ugly girl dating a white with a smug look on her face you want to call her out on it, although nobody says anything usually.”

“The only Japanese girls who end up with foreigners are the disgusting left-overs nobody else would have.”

“Compare to the Japanese guys who just lose it on 2ch when their favourite anime character is insulted…”

    Happens all the time when I would walk around with my JP wife in Japan. I say good job but if I would have beat down everyone who made a snide remark when I was with my wife then I'd be arrested a lot. We all know how the JP legal system works so that would be gaijin = guilty no matter what, which wouldn't be good.

    LOL the stares from ignorant JP people are hilarious. Not so bad on Okinawa since they're pretty accustomed to gaijin but I noticed a huge difference when we would visit the mainland.

    Seriously. I can't even begin to count all those times when some random bunch of jerks starts talking shit behind your back in Japanese (because we gaijin couldn't possibly understand that no matter what *sarcasm*).

    Best places for that are usually supermarkets and trains. Sometimes, it's really a blast when you openly confront them on what they said. The whole place becomes super-silent in an instant. You can hear a pin fall to the ground.

    Japan was a nicer place when you only knew it from anime or books or whatever. To all those who have never been there: it's NOTHING like in entertainment media but it is certainly worse on many levels.

    I must agree. I had similar treatment with my girlfriend there. Sad really, shatters that illusion painted by our hobbies.

    If I had to beat someone every time they looked at me the wrong way, there would have been many wailing wives and plenty of criminal records by now.

    Sometimes however, these bitches are asking for it.

    He should have thought of the consequences though. Not only being arrested, but the negative image it projects on all servicemen and women in Japan. The anti-base nationalist pigs are always looking for the tiniest incident to blow out of proportion.

    You're not beating the shit out of them because you're probably a weakling, and not a US serviceman. ;)

    If he stands there and takes it or ignores it he loses face with his girlfriend and the two drunk idiots. They'll think twice before doing it again and he scored major points with his girl.

    Good for him!

    WHOA WHOA WHOA...Slow down there... Justified no...acceptable yes...You should always protect what you care about, but don't forget the consequences that will soon follow(it may be career-wise or just imagine if these were Yakuza or someone similar and as a plot of revenge they decide to attack your girlfriend once again...Do you think you can save her from an army of dumb,ruthless thugs??)

    So far our best unit is our navy SEALS. The marines are not as throughly trained as our seals.

    A seal really can whoop a marine easily

    The problem with your logic is that people who do these kind of things do them regardless of how you act.
    In fact if you make yourself out to be a victim they're even more likely to do them to you as they don't have to fear any kind of repercussions.

    And no simply because you grovel and cover before them doesn't mean they'll leave you alone.

    Man, if they were Yakuza he would definitely know by the clothes unless they were really really cheap Yakuza's paws but then there wouldn't be any consequences as no one cares for such thugs.

    Seal = Navy Special Forces
    Force Recon = Marine Special Forces
    Scout Sniper = Marine Special Forces

    it's only fair to put special forces against each other. as for the regular branches.

    Marine > Army > Navy > Air Force

    i wouldn't be too sure about an american sailor getting weapons and shooting it out with yakuza. Sailors aren't even allowed weapons on ship or off ship, only people u see on ships with guns r marines.

    Better choice is to just kill them in a straight up fist fight. Trained and hardened marine would have no reason not to kill these little cunts given the right excuse.

    Let's see those yakuza ending up in American prisons. They would prove to be popular - they are exotic.

    i agree shouldn't underestimate cowards in large numbers.

    but if such a case was to happen, i'm sure that american sailor can obtain some guns and wipe out a branch of yakuza by himself.

    Actually, there is no strategy that really works with such games. Where malice creeps in, gratuitous damage is unavoidable, and all parties lose, albeit in different ways. The best would be to change the game and quick.

    The people that lacked actual intelligence were the twits who thought they were "man" enough to insult someone for no good reason.

    Double so because it took two of them to do it. You can't reason with drunks when they're egging each other on.

    There were 4 idiots there. 2 stupid drunks who talk to foreigners to show their own stupidity. 1 stupid sailor who did not pretend not to notice the trash - and even to fight with them, proving that he is on the same IQ level as them. 1 stupid girl who did not stop and scold him and did not tell him what I just wrote but instead thought that he was so brave.

    Yep, 2 + 1 + 1 = 4.

    No moral out of the story.

    Confucius once said, "When there are three people walking, my teacher is bound to be among them. I select their good points and follow them. I take their bad points and change them in myself."

    Well there were no wise people among them, but they all sure thought me to not speak to trash.
