I get 100 opinions a day. I can’t deny that it hurt me. “Die, you’re disgusting, disappear” , up until now, I’m the one who thought those things the most.
Mother, thank you for giving birth to me. I lived a life of wanting to be loved. Thank you to everyone who supported me. I love you.
I’m sorry for being weak.
Kimura, who started fighting professionally at the age of 18, was the daughter of the women’s wrestling legend Kyoko Kimura. She had been getting offensive comments online since the Terrace House season, where she had slapped Kai, a fellow cast member, after she had lost her wrestling equipment in a laundry mix.
