The recent video by YouTuber Fidias Panayiotou, in which he dodged train fares and a hotel breakfast bill in Japan, has sparked outrage and calls for his arrest. Good manners and respect are highly valued in Japanese culture, and pranks that are seen as disrespectful are frowned upon. Panayiotou has since apologized, stating that making people feel bad was not his intention. However, social media users have demanded that he delete the video to prove his sincerity. This incident is not the first time a foreign YouTuber has caused controversy in Japan, with previous incidents involving trespassing on a construction site and posting a video of an apparent suicide victim.
