To Hana Kimura and her family, I am so incredibly sorry for your loss. .. There are no words that could possibly heal this wound… Rest In Peace Hana Kimura… If anyone reading this is suffering, know there are resources available to help.

Cyber Bullying is a very real and growing threat to us all as a society. Succumbing isn’t weakness, it’s human. We have evolved to feel as if our lives depend on social acceptance because the majority of human history our survival has depended on our social groups and standing within them. I know the trolls that spend their days harassing others online are battling their own mental demons, but please find a way to release your venom in a way that won’t poison others. Even a straw’s weight can be the one to break a camel’s back. Just the tiniest push could be what sends someone over the edge. Be the kindness you wish you received instead of malice and neglect you’re trying to pay back. Don’t pass it on, protect the world from what you’ve had to endure instead of spreading it🙏🏼❤️
The wrestler spoke about how saddened she was to hear about Kimura’s passing and also addressed everyone dealing with mental health problems to reach out to someone who can help them by giving out a hotline number. She addressed how big of a threat cyber bullying has become and falling victim to it isn’t a sign of weakness, but human.
She spoke about how we as humans have grown to depend a lot on social acceptance and that anyone who doesn’t accept you and simply hurl insults at you without ever trying to lift you up are ones that are dealing with their own problems.
As a celebrity, one has to get used to internet trolls and to never let their words trample down your spirit.
Kimura lived for wrestling, having been born to parents who were both former Japanese wrestlers, Kyoko Kimura and Isao Kobayashi.
After her death, fans started translating her posts which were written in Japanese and it was clear that the wrestler had been hurting over some actions. She spoke about how she wanted love in her life but she was only weak and dead. In her last tweet she spoke that she no longer wanted to be a human. She didn’t get a life of love as she desired.
This is cue enough to let everyone know the evils of cyber bullying and to not tolerate such trolls any longer.
