As we reported last month here on eWn, a man was charged for cyberbullying the late Hana Kimura. The bullying led to Kimura committing suicide last year. The man was fined 9,000 yen ($80 USD).
According to a report from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the Tokyo Metropolitan Police charged a second man in his late 30s on April 5th. During a series of messages, he said, “Die, you stupid brat” and “You’re a waste.” When he was asked why he took part in the bullying, he said he was was just joining in on what others were already saying.
According to police, there were over 300 posts from 200 accounts they considered to be cyberbullying.
