Japanese gravure idol Erika Yazawa has made headlines once again.
Earlier, she was said to have been sexually harrassed on a variety show, after Japanese host Masakazu Mimura, 47, patted her thigh and groped her chest. Erika couldn't help but give a wry smile before Masakazu let go his hand.
Netizens were up in arms against Masakazu after the show was aired in Japan. According to a forum thread, they pointed out that the host shall not have done that to an artiste, especially when he has a wife and daughter.
Some commentators asked the host to put himself in the artiste's shoe and suggested Erika to lodge a police report.
The 24-year-old was recently embroiled in controversy again after professional boxer Daisuke Naito, 40, gave her a hug from behind and rubbed her chest, said online reports.
