23 September 2013 / 3 years 1 month ago

Pictures of AKB48's Kaori Matsumura's face without makeup have caused quite a stir among fans of the Japanese girl group.

Fans have decried Kaori's au naturel looks as 'ugly', 'hideous' and 'scary', and were frankly stunned by the difference in her appearance sans makeup.

She had posted the picture during typhoon Usagi, earning herself the ire of her once-loyal fans.

In the picture she appears wan and at least twice her age, with what appears to be a startlingly receding hairline.
