Your Homicidols Weekender #388

It was an incredibly eventful week in global idol news!! First off, ATARASHII GAKKO absolutely slayed Coachella for the second weekend in a row. Then PLANCK STARS made their debut appearance in South America playing Anime Summit in Brazil. Everybody had a wonderful time!!

Or, maybe not… 

Shortly after the event ended, the organizers of Anime Summit posted a notice stating their surprise that the PLANCK STARS performance included, “themes such as sex, androgyny, death and other taboos,” and apologized for presenting  such inappropriate material to an all-age audience.

The organizers have since taken the notice down and there has been an outpouring of support from attendees of Anime Summit who felt that Plasta were the highlight of the event.

Mori weighed in on the controversy via Instagram Story saying,

“If you keep your kids away from perverted things when they’re young their rebel spirits will make them seek even more perverted things, and they will enjoy them even more, this happened to me!

I think PLANCK STARS is a good way to learn about perverted things. We will keep working hard to be recognized as such.”

So, basically: Bring your kids to see PLANCK STARS or they will turn out to be like Mori!
