The HKT48 member was only expressing her excitement in having her fellow HKT48 members Miyawaki Sakura and Yabuki Nako back into the group. Her tweet, however, was met with intense backlash from IZ*ONE fans who have been heartbroken from the disbandment news.
- “Are you for real right now? You’re not being considerate of IZ*ONE fans”
- “Is she f**king serious?”
- “F**K YOU!!!!!!!”
Prior to becoming members of IZ*ONE, Sakura and Nako were members of the Japanese girl group HKT48.
