Meanwhile, fans have started a petition calling for the resignation of NGT48’s theater manager Etsuro Imamura. They would also like a formal apology for how the entire situation was handled.
Etsuro was directly called out by Maho in her previous statements, as she was promised something would be done but nothing ended up happening.
“Since Imamura-san’s a man, he probably just doesn’t understand the fear that we have to grow up with as women”.
The petition was created on change.org, and after just opening it has already amassed over 2.5k signatures. Click here to sign the petition.
