Chinese Reporter Called Unpatriotic
His visit to the controversial Yasukuni Shrine, which honors Japan’s war dead but includes the names of hundreds of convicted war criminals who perpetrated abuses in China, made Abe a divisive figure in China during and after his prime ministership.
“1.4 billion Chinese people and you’re the only one crying,” one Weibo user wrote. In a lengthy post, the reporter apologized for “losing my self-control” but said she was shaken up by the precarious situation in Japan and was an unapologetic supporter of “world peace, and no more war between China and Japan ever again.”
