Death threats aren’t jokes

Chiu on This
A short and regular opinion blast from Stephen Chiu

‘Chiu on This’ is a short and regular opinion blast

Today Hiko revealed on stream that he and his family was getting death threats from Brazilian fans. Some of the excuses have been so mind-boggling I thought I’d address them. Some say it’s a joke, some say it’s because of passion, some say it is mostly young fans that wouldn’t do it, and some say you shouldn’t generalize.

Let me put it this way. It doesn’t matter if only 1 percent of all of the death threats Hiko got are serious. It only takes one person to kill him and then he’s dead. That’s it. There’s nothing else to say.
