Gundo Mirei tweeted on his Twitter account during the final game of World Baseball Classic (WBC) on March 22 (JST), “Can’t the person who throws this ball, when a strong person stands up, throw it at his head or body so he can be suspended?” and tweeted a statement suggesting giving a dead ball to the batter. In response to this, there was a wave of criticism, such as “This is not a matter of not knowing the rules of baseball,” “This is an ethical problem for a person,” and “ANYCOLOR should educate its celebrities before insisting on measures to prevent defamation of its celebrities.
Subsequently, ANYCOLOR announced on March 23 (JST) that Gundo would be suspended. This disciplinary action was still in effect.
Although Gundo has been involved in problematic behavior in the past (“Fascism is good,” “VTubers will soon become obsolete,” “fabricated statements that embezzled money from Osaka Prefecture Volleyball Association was used to pay for Super Chat for talent from VTuber agency hololive Production,” etc.), there has been no significant disciplinary action taken against her by ANYCOLOR), ANYCOLOR has not taken any noticeable action against the company. Some media outlets criticized ANYCOLOR for this, claiming that they were being treated too generously by ANYCOLOR.
Furthermore, allegations that Gundo was conducting a Blue Whale Challenge also surfaced.
The report stated that the viewers and fans of the superchat were ordered to “enter a park fountain,” “eat dirt,” “lick rinse,” and “burn their guts out. In addition, information about the alleged attempts by NIJISANJI (ANYCOLOR) to delete the video and destroy evidence was also spread on social networking sites.
The information about her may be a mixture of truth and falsehood, so the viewer of this article should judge this information with caution.
