  • The show director for the Tokyo Olympics opening ceremony Kentaro Kobayashi has been fired on the eve of the event over a decades-old skit referencing the Holocaust. Kobayashi’s firing comes as the latest blow for organisers of the pandemic-delayed Games. Former PM and a staunch supporter of games Shinzo Abe won’t be allowed to attend the games. Meanwhile, former PM and ex-Tokyo 2020 President Yoshiro Mori had resigned after making distasteful remarks at women. Watch the full video for more details.
