I just found out about the death of fighter Hana Kimura, Stardom stars, after receiving dozens of harassment messages. He was only 22 years old.

“We regret to report the death of Hana Kimura. We ask for respect and time so that those close to her can process what happened, as well as her prayers for all of them,” said the company, which also set out to collaborate with the authorities to advance the investigation and determine the true causes of death.
Before she died, she shared an image with her cat from her home. But most striking were the disturbing photos he posted hours earlier, but which were later immediately deleted. According to the users who saw them, you could see some cuts on their body.

The attack on Kimura in networks began after her participation in the popular show “Terrace House” where she gained popularity, but after learning of a fight with one of the participants, the insults and threats on Twitter and Instagram did not stop. This would be the apparent reason for his suicide.
