20,000 comments sent in on YouTube video footage critical of Australian reaction concerning whaling

1, 22. 2008

   A video footage uploaded on YouTube criticizing Australian attitude toward Japan's scientific whaling is getting a huge reaction in Japan, Australia and other areas. As of January 10, 2008, the number of comments sent in on the footage both in Japanese and English had exceeded 20,000, or the double the number registered on January 8. Most of the comments express pros and cons about the video that also shows as related incidents the pictures of racial violence and kangaroo slaughtering in Australia. The number of re-plays of the video has reached 660,000, or three times that on January 8, indicating further escalation of a Japan-Australia "cyber-battle".
