Kojima Would Take Legal Action Against The False Accusations Against Him!

The Japanese genius had nothing to do with the assassination of their former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and did not take kindly to the fact that he had been named as the perpetrator…


We’ve already written about how several people have accused Hideo Kojima based on false rumours (more details here), but now we’ll get to the new information. On Friday, Kojima’s name trended on Twitter, with about thirty-five thousand tweets saying that he had been falsely accused of the assassination of the former Japanese Prime Minister. Of course, he was almost certainly informed of it in no time (Kojima is a keen user of the ‘birdie’ social networking site).

Initially, Kojima Productions, Kojima’s studio, did not react to the matter. Still, on Saturday, they responded to the events in a statement, VGC reports . In it, the studio says they are considering legal action against “certain fake news stories”. The studio wrote, “Kojima Productions strongly condemns the spread of fake news and rumours that convey false information. We do not tolerate such libel and will consider taking legal action in some cases.” (There are several: a Greek news channel, an Iranian news agency… but perhaps a French far-right politician could be included.)

The timing is unfortunate, as the House of Councillors elections in Japan are taking place today, July 10… or were, because the time zone differences mean it is already over. However, it is still amazing how the media can exaggerate (oh, we don’t have to go next door for the constant libel slander: the Hungarian state media are losing lawsuits weekly). We haven’t even considered the simple question of what Kojima would have gained from the case if he had anything to do with Abe Shinzo’s death. (Nothing, we would stress that here!)

The most surprising is the case of the Greek news channel… you have to stoop to a pretty low level. Isn’t there anyone who can check the sources?
