Othello - I have an old Ibanez flying V with a rising sun painted on it. You will not shame me Korean Zombie!!!!

The rising sun is a beautiful symbol, and a beautiful flag. I have one. I also have a nazi flag. They're historically relevant. I certainly wouldn't wear either one though.

The only reason the rising sun is more acceptable, is because 1) every WW2 movie is western theater, and 2) our public schools are trash and the average under-30 doesn't even know Japan participated in WW2.
The movies they'd show in Navy bootcamp and deployment are eastern theater... Phone Post

KingofBJJ - Not knowing much about his background, but if he practiced some form of Japanese Martial Art (karate, Judo etc.), then he has every right to express his thanks this way.

It's not like he is wearing Native American make up and carrying a tomahawk.
I have know problem with having a picture of Jigoro Kano pictures but why do i need to thank a whole country for a art do we thank all of Italy for divinci? All of Brazil for Gracie Ju Jitsu cause across as prostitution imo... Phone Post

cheesesteak - It's kind of sad that GSP didn't even type that shit. he probably just text his facebook handler to write that.

Yup, no accountability here, to apologize on the internet is fucking stupid, and ridiculous, minimize the seriousness of what's actually happened. GSP took the coward way out.
Well, TKZ shouldn't have complained on the Internet then should he. Phone Post

I think it is very prudent that GSP apoligised so quickly. Anyone who doubts him sincerity is an absolutely douchebag. It is obvious that he nor the clothing company knew the implications of using the ''rising sun'' symbol. Even though it was also the symbol for the army of Japan (since it is the imperial flag) and has been connected to the warcrimes of the Japanese imperial army (especially in Korea and China) it is and was still being used a lot a commercial products.

 

I personally think not a lot of different fighters nor companies would react as quickly as both GSP and Hayabusha have done in this particular case.

 

People are hating on GSP because of this are simply a bunch of laughable sad haters.

Jumbo Reverse Shrimp - I knew when he walked out some crybabies would bitch about this. The ignorance of these crybabies is mind bottling ironing.

Get GSP's cock out of your mouth fag, he's spent years devoting his life to asian martial arts, yet he's disrespecting them all by wearing something that represents blood, imperialism, and genocide?

I swear to god gsp could eat a baby on live tv, and you homos would defend him..


Some nerd posting an apology on his facebook account isn't sufficient, or to the standards of the 21st century. He can't IM a my bad to the whole of asia.

People as ignorant are you should spend a few years offline reading before making any more posts.
