Yojiro Noda, the young singer of Radwimps, a music group that many of you will remember for "Nandemonaiya" and other songs from your 2016 masterpiece, recently landed in the eye of the hurricane due to a recently shared tweet that jokingly said in favor of eugenics.
At the end of the article you can view both tweets. In the first, released on July 16, the singer wrote: "I've said it before, but I believe that spouses of people with monstrous geniuses like Shohei Ohtani, Sota Fujii and Mana Ashida should be selected by the state through a project that is carried out by national experts"The three people nominated by Noda are a baseball player, a Shogi champion and a very talented young Japanese actress.
The singer's statement goes back to the basics ofEugenics, an ideology that outlines a number of theories and practices that aim to improve the genetic quality of a given population through external intervention. This philosophy was very popular in the time of National Socialist Germanyand several users reminded the singer with comments "They confuse people and horses","Shame on you","Nice Nazi comment"and with other less respectful sentences.
Shortly afterwards the singer released a second tweet: "I noticed some serious comments, obviously joking"Again, however, most users scolded Noda's behavior and emphasized the tenderness of the topic.

Two years after the ultra-nationalist song HINOMARU, Yojiro Noda from RADWIMPS did it again. If I were a fan of his, I would be devastated to find that he is not only an ultra-nationalist, but also an eugenicist. The timing of his eugenic tweet was also bad because we /- Masaki C.

Yojiro Noda is for eugenics.- Jay P (@ Weissroy0), July 25, 2020
Hey Siri, get rid of all the radwimps from my libraries.
Yojiro Noda, the singer of the famous Japanese band Radwimps, claims "governments should choose partners" for people with "extraordinary genes" as a "national project". Terrible example of eugenics. https://t.co/wsxXhRkMXO- Teppei Kasai (@TeppeiKasai), July 25, 2020
Yojiro Noda, who tweeted about Eugenik, didn't think I would see him on Twitter this morning. How disappointing pic.twitter.com/3XQwc1KDRb- キ ト (@uni_kitto) July 26, 2020
