• Details On Stardom Wrestler Hana Kimura’s Suicide, Why She Got Bullied
As we noted last night, 22 years old Stardom wrestler Hana Kimura committed suicide last night as she became a target of massive cyber bullying.
Before passing away, she shared the following note on Twitter:
“Nearly 100 opinions every day. I couldn’t deny that I was hurt. I’m dead. Thank you for giving me a mother. It was a life I wanted to be loved. Thank you to everyone who supported me. I love it. I’m weak. I’m sorry. I don’t want to be alive anymore. It was a life I wanted to be loved. Thank you everyone. I love you. Bye.”
F4WOnline explained that she was bullied by a lot of people after an incident on the Netflix series called Terrace House:
“In an incident on Terrace House filmed in early January, a male housemate named Kai washed his clothes while her outfit that she wore at the Tokyo Dome was in the washer and then threw it in the dryer and ruined the outfit. She lost her temper and slapped him hard.”
The costume was the one she had a lot of memories with, and she even wore it in the Tokyo Dome.
The mails contained messages from people telling her to kill herself, as they considered her to be too sensitive about a costume.
