A Western comedy duo have apologised once they reportedly said Australian Open champion Naomi Osaka”needed some bleach” during a live event.
21, Western Osaka, won her first Pan Pacific Open title in her hometown Osaka on Sunday – her first trophy since the Melbourne triumph of January.
The duo, called’A Masso’, also allegedly said”she’s overly”.
Their management firm, Watanabe Entertainment, says they’ve been warned following the remarks.
Both girls apologised for making”improper, hurtful opinions”, though they did not title two-time Grand Slam winner Osaka, who is Haitian-Japanese.
“We sincerely apologise to creating the particular person feel uncomfortable, as well as for everyone else joined to the event,” comedian Ai Murakami explained.
“We also sincerely apologise for causing difficulty. Though we should have thought about itwe made remarks that hurt many people, something we will never do again.”
In January, Japanese noodle business Nissin was accused of”whitewashing” the mixed-race Osaka in a manga drawing.
Former world number one Osaka was created in Japan before going into the United States when she was still young.
