Right after the earthquake that occurred in the waters off the coast of Fukushima at the night of the same day (the 13th), a post “I saw a Korean shipbuilder poisoning the Fukushima well!” was posted on Twitter, causing controversy in Japan.
This tweet reminds me of the incident that thousands of Koreans were slaughtered by vigilantes, etc.
Japanese netizens criticized the tweets that reminded them of the historical tragedy of the Great Kanto Earthquake massacre of Koreans.
One netizen criticized that “it is absolutely unforgivable,” saying, “It is the lowest and worst incitement of discrimination that reminds people of the Great Kanto Earthquake that Koreans in Japan cannot stand.”
Other netizens also pointed out, “There are a lot of hate crimes against Asians due to the widespread corona. There are many people who lose their lives.”
The Twitter account that posted the tweet in question has been removed as a result of criticism.
In Japan, even during the Kumamoto earthquake in 2016, a rumor spread on the Internet that the Koreans spread poison to the well.
At the time, criticism was hot, but some argued that it was just a joke and not an incitement to discrimination.
Conspiracy arose as people who denied the massacre of Koreans in the Great Kanto Earthquake as a conspiracy theory and claimed that Japanese women were raped by immigrants at the time.
