Social media is a powerful tool, and sometimes a cry for help can be blasted to many using this. This was the case earlier today with the 22 year old up and coming star, Hana Kimura. A second generation wrestler, Kyoko Kimura, Hana has been working with Stardom since 2016, and has found tag team success alongside her mother, Kagatsu, Jungle Kyona and Konami. She also nabbed a role on the reality TV show, Terrance House. Alongside Giulia, Hana Kimura even made her Tokyo Dome debut this year, losing to the team of Arisa Hoshiki & Mayu Iwatani. Despite all this, things are not as good as you might think, and she gave fans a bleak look into what is happening behind the scenes.
Troubling Tweets Posted By Hana Kimura
In a series of now deleted tweets, Kimura would post some images of her wrists slashed into a bloody mess, a common form of self harm. This was alongside tweets saying she gets hundreds of hate messages every day, attacking her physical appearance and personality. The translated tweets were as followed.
“Nearly 100 frank opinions every day. I couldn’t deny that I was hurt. I’m dead. Thank you for giving me a mother. It was a life I wanted to be loved. Thank you to everyone who supported me. I love it. I’m weak, I’m sorry.”
“I don’t want to be a human anymore.”
“It was a life I wanted to be loved.”
“Thank you everyone, I love you.”
Things got worse for her after the role on Terrance House, with the fans of that show attacking her following an on-screen incident involving her and other cast members. Add in a post from Instagram with her simply saying ‘Sayonara’ and fans & friends alike were rightfully worried.
Help Is Hopefully On The Way
A friend of Stardom allumni Bobbie Tyler, who is good friends with Kimura would post the following update. “ I got in touch with people to get them to find out if she’s OK. What I got back was that she is OK as one can be. STARDOM and other friends are en route to her.”
With the world being locked down by COVID-19, mental health issues have become amplified tenfold. While the tweets distressed her fans with their graphic nature, they hopefully have gotten Kimura the help she needs in these bleak times. Add in being a public figure who gets hate sent their way online constantly, and it’s a rough situation for sure. We here at The Overtimer wish the best to Hana Kimura and her family, and we hope to be back with a positive update on this situation soon.
