Faux Pas or Lack of Judgment: AKB48 Member Embroiled in Controversy

Richard "...actually, it isn’t even all of AKB48 who is involved with this, just one member – Tomomi Sakai. Because of her actions a spotlight has been placed on the group, and not the kind of spotlight they are accustomed to. This time, the group find themselves on the wrong side of the argument with things only getting worse and worse." (AKB48, Culture)

The management behind this band are a bit nuts. They've set up a shoot with a kid holding a band members boobs, which just isn't alright (though I'd love to be that kid) and would obviously cause controversy.

And I just read a story that they demoted one of the members because she had a boyfriend. That member then felt she had to shave her head to make up for breaking the no boyfriend rule.

They're pretty crazy over there in Japan.

Yeah, they seem to be a lot more radical in the way they do PR then we may be accustomed to. The rule against them having boyfriends is especially ridiculous.
