On December 16, Yukina Kinoshita released a video on her YouTube account. She usually starts off her videos with a “chorisse” pose, but on this day, she looked mysterious. That’s just as well. The title of the video is “Let me tell you about the tapioca incident.
The Tapioca Incident is an issue where Kinoshita sent a threatening DM to the owner of the tapioca drink store where her sister works in 2019.
I’m going to get a lawyer and do all the legal work I can, so depending on how things go from here, I’ll have the whole office on my side.
“Prepare yourself and admit it, Obatan.
“You have to be prepared to admit it, Obatan,” she said, making fun of her opponent.
Afterwards, Kinoshita apologized, but this did not weaken the public’s criticism of her misuse of her position as an entertainer. Then, in July of 2008, he retired from the entertainment industry. However, he gradually resumed his activities, and in October 2009, he opened a YouTube channel. In October 2009, she opened a YouTube channel and said, “I would like to start working from scratch again.
On the other hand, the tapioca incident later evolved into a lawsuit claiming damages, and a judgment was issued against Kinoshita to pay 400,000 yen to the defendants. At the time of the verdict, he said, “I take this very seriously. I’m really sorry,” he apologized, but in his latest video, he said, “Normally, it’s something like 200,000 yen. In the latest video, he mentioned that the amount was “more than the market price”, saying, “It’s more than I heard. Still, he said, “It makes a lot of sense.
He also explained the reason why he sent the DM in the first place, “I got mad. I was frustrated. That’s why I sent that e-mail.
Kinoshita also claimed in the video that he had also received a hard time. On the other hand, the opinion that “it was not Kinoshita who frightened first in the first place ……” is also appearing in the net. In addition, Kinoshita did not present any evidence other than her own testimony.
What is the reason why she speaks her “true feelings” to the public now? We will have to keep our eyes on her.
