Earlier today, concerns were expressed after Kimura posted self-harm images on Twitter, as well as messages saying, “Almost 100 candid opinions every day. I couldn’t deny that I was injured. I am 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 this. I’m weak, I’m sorry. I don’t want to be human anymore. It was a life I wanted to be loved. Thank you all, I love you. Goodbye. “
Stardom also issued a statement in English:
