Olympics Show Director Expelled For Making Jokes On Holocaust

After a video from the 1990s of Kentaro Kobayashi resurfaced, he was dismissed as the Show Director of the Olympics opening ceremony a day before the Tokyo Olympics started. Japan's Olympic Chief Seiko Hashimoto said the video which shows him making jokes on the Holocaust reminded "painful acts of history". This controversy has added to the long list of scandals that have surrounded the Tokyo Games this year.
