Oyamada – also known as stage designer Cornelius – has been the subject of a social backlash after comments he made in the ’90s with the Japanese magazine Rockin’On Japan. In the comments, he described the abuse of his apparently disabled classmates at school.
Oyamada issued a statement on Friday acknowledging his past actions and apologizing for his impact on classmates and their families.
Following criticism of his abusive and abusive behavior, Oyamada said in a Twitter message on Monday that accepting a position on the creative team for the music had “neglected.”
Oyama said he had submitted his resignation to the Olympic Organizing Committee and was grateful for the “thoughts they gave me and I want to reflect them in my behavior and future thinking” before he became “very sorry”.
Oyamada’s resignation is the latest controversy over the rocking of the Tokyo Olympics, which was delayed last year amid a coronavirus pandemic.
