Japanese Announcer Miku Natsume has recently lost her job over photos released which show her, fully clothed, holding up an unopened condom box. Other photos in the set showed her with a man, her boyfriend at the time. Rumors are that an ex-boyfriend released the pictures.
She is a very good announcer with an atypical, slightly deeper voice than the average female Japanese announcer.
Most people on the net have commented about how stupid this decision is, but tv stations sometimes go to great, almost suffocating lengths to control the images of their announcers.
This is a shame. I really hope she lands on her feet. This is no sex tape, in fact, it can be spun into a positive message for the Japanese use with whom condom use is far lower than it should be.
