1. [+3,347, -32] The ad is a realistic depiction of Japanese society so the fact that the Japanese are getting mad means that they themselves are aware of the discrimination. However, they’re not embarrassed of the discrimination happening, they’re embarrassed that people around the world are seeing it. Such sad people ㅎㅎ

2. [+1,386, -7] Looks like I need to buy some Nike

3. [+731, -2] Japan is not embarrassed of ijime, they’re more scared of the rest of the world finding out about it and tainting their image as a country

4. [+384, -10] I support Nike

5. [+155, -13] What do you expect from a country that’s surrounded on all sides by water, tsk tsk

6. [+111, -2] Japan can boycott Nike all they want, they won’t make a dent ㅋ do they think Nike is the size of Uniqlo or something? ㅋㅋ

7. [+94, -0] Nike has a philosophy when it comes to their ads, it’s almost like watching a short movie

8. [+65, -1] We’ll buy Nike products on their behalf

9. [+46, -9] If our country was depicted in such a manner, we would’ve felt embarrassed and reflected over it. The Japanese are so different.

10. [+23, -2] The ad is simply exposing the barbaric aspects of Japan’s society

11. [+21, -0] The Japanese should not be mad, they should be embarrassed. They still don’t get it.

12. [+21, -0] There’s no society as discriminatory as Japan’s. Imagine how bad it must be for a profit-forward company like Nike to put out an ad like this?
