News outlets falsely link Hideo Kojima to Shinzo Abe assassination after racist ‘joke’

On Friday morning, Japan’s longest-serving Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was assassinated while delivering a campaign speech for upcoming elections. Abe was shot twice, and died after being taken to a hospital. A suspect named Tetsuya Yamagami was arrested at the scene and has admitted to the shooting.

That would seem a clear resolution to an event that has sparked global horror and condemnation; Abe is regarded as one of the key shapers of the modern Japanese political landscape, to the extent the country’s economic policies have been nicknamed ‘Abenomics.’ This hasn’t stopped parts of the internet from spinning up an alternate versions of events.
