In Johnny’s land, there’s an existing fan etiquette that everyone should follow including celebrities. Back in 2013, Kosuke Kitajima became friendly with Arashi‘s Sakurai Sho, who then invited him to see Arashi’s AraFes. Unfortunately, Kosuke receives some bashing from Arashians after he posted a tweet that he is watching Arafes. Some Arashians, who didn’t manage to get those precious balloted tickets, bashed him for being insensitive to the feelings of those who didn’t get in.
Since no one is exempted from fans wrath on proper manners, reader model of JJ magazine got to experience wrath from Eighters. Model Kawabata Arisa attended KANJANI8‘s Recital “Omae no heart wo tsukandaru!” last July 18th and on July 19th, she posted pictures of her and her friend inside the venue. Everyone knows that fancams is strictly prohibited inside the venue, she’s lucky that she didn’t get caught.
Anyway, what irks fans the most are Kawabata’s posts, like how she’s only 6 rows away from the stage so she can see them closer, how she likes Nishikido Ryo a lot and seeing him closer is too cool and different. I think that the Nishikido comments is what irked most fans. haha. Some Eighters bashed her for her lack of manners, for being proud that she’d seen the guys closer, and for even wearing stilletos since it’ll be an inconvenience to audience behind her. Ugh, when fans bashed, they bashed all the way. Gahd, how many times she must stick her tongue out? 😄
Oh well, Kawabata have longed deleted those pictures from her blog so next time, be considerate.
