Has Fuji Flinched??
Mar 2, 2015 — Rumor has they have...I've contacted both Fuji-TV, the show's sponsor, Shionogi, and the musicians themselves...everyone knows what's going on. No one can claim ignorance, no way.
And even if the rumor that Fuji-TV edited the blackface out of this weekend's show turns out to only be speculations, Fuji will likely do a double take once this story goes national in the US.
Yep, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, even FOX have been sent press releases, and the venerable NAACP has also been contacted. So even if this thing does air (and if I know Japan it likely will), that will only be the opening salvo, not the end of this battle.
