If you watch Japanese television at all you can hardly have escaped seeing this man's annoying commercials. Recently he has been in the news for saying he wants to take over the lead sponsorship spot for Japan's iconic Sazae-san broadcast, which is being dropped by Toshiba after a 48 year relationship.

Now he's in the news again, this time for tweeting that the Rape of Nanking and Auschwitz were fake.

I think it may be referring to the same statements.

He has an English Wikipedia entry? All this time I thought he was strictly a domestic aśśhole.

What will a denier of the Nanjing massacre and the holocaust advertise on Sazae-san? Beauty operations?

I have no love for anime in general, but Sazae-san is a cultural icon that stands apart from the junk out there. I hate to think of that tacky S.O.B. having any input whatsoever into the program and I can't imagine it with his godawful commercials. Hemorrhoid cream would be a better sponsor.
