Japanese comedians apologise after saying tennis star Naomi Osaka "Needs To Bleach Her Skin"

A Japanese comedy duo have apologised after they reportedly said Australian Open champion Naomi Osaka "needed some bleach" during a live event.


The pair suggested Osaka needed “bleach,” and said the 21-year-old former world No. 1 was “too sunburned,” during a live performance on Sunday, September 22. 

The duo who call themselves “Kano” and “Murakami” — issued an apology, saying that they had been “ignorant” and “hurtful.”

“We apologize for our failure to supervise A Masso, who made remarks that entirely lacked consideration,” their management firm, Watanabe Entertainment, added in a statement.

Watanabe Entertainment also added their own apology for “remarks inconsiderate of diversity in an era where diversity is respected,” saying the duo had been severely warned and steps taken to raise their awareness of the issue.
