There's also a musician that was found to have forced his classmates to eat shit and masturbate in front of him. Not only that, he laughed about it in an interview

Oyamada told Quick Japan magazine in 1995 how he had confined a classmate in a cardboard box and forced a boy with an intellectual disability to eat his own faeces and masturbate in front of other children. He made similar comments in another magazine interview a year earlier.

He apologised on Saturday, saying he was sorry his involvement with the Olympics and Paralympics had “made many people feel very uncomfortable”, but did not offer to resign.
On Monday, the organising committee admitted it had been wrong to accept his first apology. Describing his actions as “absolutely unacceptable,” it said: “In light of his sincere apology, we expressed a willingness to allow Mr Oyamada to continue his work on preparations in the short time remaining before the opening ceremony. However, we have come to believe that this decision was wrong, and we have decided to accept his resignation.
Oyamada’s resignation, coming four days before the opening ceremony, is the latest in a series of setbacks for organisers, who are also contending with

At this rate, half of Japan's organising committee will be gone before the games start. What an absolute embarrassment

The Olympics were supposed to be a huge PR boon for the host country, but it seems Japan's public image is getting trashed due to the Games.

Post Beijing Olympics has this really been the case?

2012 London Olympics: okay but nothing special.

2016 Rio Olympics: plagued with problems but not a complete fiasco.

2020 (2021) Tokyo Olympics: Looks like it will be a complete disaster.

Why anyone still fights to host the Olympics is beyond me.
