'Shocking Foreigner Crime' comic withdrawn
Embarrassed Japanese retailers are removing a comic book from their shelves that highlights crimes committed by foreigners.
The nationwide convenience store FamilyMart has announced it will pull from its shelves the comic-magazine titled "Shocking Foreigner Crime" after complaints of racism and offensive language.
The publication details recent crimes in Japan involving foreigners, asking whether they should be allowed to devastate Japan.
The company that published the magazine has denied it is racist, and says it wanted to broaden a debate about crime.
One SHOCKING truth is that in Japan motorcycle riders put their helmets on top of their bikes and walk away.
Only people to steal them are foreigners.
