Gackt's Perspective on Recent Controversies regarding the Johnny's scandal posted on Twitter.


Gackt shares his thoughts on the decisions made by companies to sever ties with artists associated with Johnny & Associates on Twitter.

Amidst the headlines about major companies severing ties with Johnny's Entertainment, it's worth noting that these issues and rumors have likely circulated within the industry for some time. While individual artists facing repercussions for their actions is understandable, in this case, the artists themselves appear to be more like unwitting victims.

The decision to cut ties based on these associations is both unusual and disconcerting, potentially tarnishing the companies' images. These artists have long been the faces of their campaigns, and now, the abrupt 'compliance' moves seem more reactive than well-considered.

This incident has exposed a lack of understanding on these companies' part regarding their artists' fanbase sentiments. For many fans, these 'compliance-driven' actions are off-putting, demonstrating a disregard for their loyalty.

In the end, such companies may face significant consequences down the road. To sum it up in one word: 'disturbing.' It underscores the pervasive trend of going along with whatever is popular in Japan..."

Gackt's response to comments to his Twitter post:

There were various comments made about my remarks, but I'm not the type of person to flip-flop, and I don't aspire to be.

No matter what has happened in the past, I like the artists at Johnny's Entertainment, and I support these highly talented individuals.

Whether it's about the agency or their names, those things have no bearing on why I support them.

I understand the agency's issues are a concern, but attacking the artists themselves is different. They may very well be victims in this situation.

There are likely to be many different opinions, and I'm not here to say who's right or wrong.

Even though times may be tough, we can always overcome them.

I'm cheering for you. Keep going!

What do you think of Gackt's opinion on this matter?
