Disney Japan is under fire after its official Twitter account congratulated the country on the 70th anniversary of the U.S. military dropping two atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
As Kotaku points out, this isn’t the first time @DisneyJP has tweeted questionable content in relation to certain infamous dates from Japanese history. A few others were found to make similar insensitive allusions to terrible past events.
The Japanese reads: “Congrats on a trifling day.” Combined with imagery from Disney’s Alice in Wonderland, the tweet was supposedly meant to commemorate the anniversary of the the second atomic bomb, which was used on Nagasaki.
Huh? Must be a weird cultural gap sort of thing…
