AKB48’s Minami Minegishi Shaves Off Hair As Sex Apology


Even creepy AKB48 fans have recoiled at Minami Minegishi’s shocking act of atonement for being caught “spending the night” with a male friend: the distraught idol was made to shave her head and apologise to fans on YouTube – although her unflattering new hairstyle and public humiliation may be the least of her worries, as she was also punished by being demoted from active AKB48 membership.

AKB48 officially recorded her humiliation for the benefit of fans:

In addition to shaving herself, she has also been formally punished by being dropped from AKB48’s active ranks to “research student” status.

AKB48 watchers are as usual provide their insights whether anyone wants to hear them or not:

“This is completely shocking…”

“I can’t bear to look!”

“Right – look how ugly she is!”

“This really is shocking, but not that way. AKB aren’t going to be around much longer.”

“So this is the punishment for sex there?”

“In the midst of a huge scandal where a schoolboy was bullied into suicide by his teacher’s punishments, they do this!?”

“Just more marketing by controversy by AKB48.”

“This is going too far.”

“Her fans are going to be aghast at this…”

“Isn’t this a human rights violation?”

“You think they let them have those in the world of show business?”

“She is ugly. This is an idol…”

“It’s a very Showa-esque way of atoning. I like it.”

“This reminds me of a scene from one of those abuse AVs.”

“Nice of them to show the world how abnormal Japanese culture is by exposing this on YouTube, so they can see what a crass people we are and how little we care for human rights.”

“Why isn’t this seen as harassment or a violation of her rights?”

“Hard to believe she wasn’t ordered to do this.”

“This is like something from the Islamic world…”

“All she did was have sex, and they did this to her.”

“Will they include her hair as an extra in their next CD?”

    This is really distressing. I get asked a bit here if I like AKB, I might go from just saying no to actively chastising people for supporting this cult.

    'Cult'...thats a good way of seeing it. I get asked the same thing, but everyone who asks really dislikes them. The only person I've met who loves them was a young teenage girl, but she loved them for their crappy music.

    Yo, if you follow their group/forum chatter. Minegishi (or "Geesh") did this head shave of her own will. She did NOT consult management or even other group members.

    She was simply demoted and she can return to "active status" in 9-18 months if keeps out of trouble but she'll be 21-22 and most girls graduate by then unless. She's better off looking for another gig.

    What's really awkward is she's the go-to gal for when they need a seasoned original member for talk shows and she's 3rd most used for MC during shows. Also she's part of 3 girl sub-unit called "No Sleeves" and her demotion now affects them & they just released a new single a month about a month ago.

    If this happened before I married a Japanese woman, I would have reconsidered soon enough and avoided lot of problems...

    It's sick.
    But now she's cuter than before anyway.
    She should smile! She's free now.

    For what dumbass? The girls voluntarily agree not to have sex and sign a contract saying so. Their parents also agree to this (Minegishi, like many idols was very young to start...14). Akimoto is within his rights to fire her and he'd also have a case for sueing her for breach of contract. He didn't fire her because she's popular but she'll quietly go soon. Obviously, she isn't into being an idol anymore but don't look for her elsewhere...only a small handful of AKB girls will have careers after AKB. Minegishi will simply become someone's wife, which will be the fate of most idols (and it's THEIR choice...read up on AKB girls and by far the most popular choice when asked what they want to become in the future is a wife). Just ask Mrs Akimoto...she was once a popular idol.

    Please, do some research before blurting stuff my Japanese friend, because the statement is ignorant and is not the truth.

    This is correct. Women get stoned to death for having sex before marriage.

    Or they get life imprisonment.

    When Mary got pregnant with Jesus the jews wanted to stone her for sinning against their laws. They tought that she cheated. It was her husband that saved her from that. The main point is that the jews wanted to stone her. So stoning is not a muslim only thing.

    It does not have to be stoning. Think og Gaza and what is going on there. And christians almost wiped out the American continents entire native (a.k.a. indians) population, ruined their culture and enslaved the africans.

    You're right. The Islamic world has figured out that stones are inefficient.

    They would just hang her to death from a crane.

    I agree. Religion is used by people to justify their own wrongs. This hes nothing to do with religion.
    It is just human stupidity.

    But religion was also responsible for the dark ages, countless deaths during the witch hunts, the sacking of many cities, and the destruction of countless collections of historical writing over the past 3000 years.

    religion even if you don't have faith is useful for forming communities. it helped shape most moral codes we still hold on too as well it's responsible for basically all of the technological preservation after the fall of the roman empire.

    I thought about this too and I think you are right. I would also say religion calm down peoples psych. make living together much easier.
    Means that humanity needs religion? in the moment yes but it would not be needed if we treat the persons next to us like the human beeings they are. Until we have reached this point we will need religions and mental hospitals.

    Religion is a form of escapism. It's not a justification. The later implies flawed analysis of an idea. People who abuse religion to incite atrocities are just sociopaths. They don't subscribe to the creed themselves.

    yea right..in some countries and muslims with extremist mindset, you have beheadings if one is opposing sharia law or is an apostate, chopping off hands for petty thief, you can't freely drink beer or skip fasting, you may be punish if you get caught, if muslims caught having sex before marriage,they'll get humiliated in the news,etc.

    Sharia law is stupid and should not be enforced on every muslims, Governments should be secular..
