To anyone in Japan right now:

Please stay safe. I’m so sorry that you guys have to go through this; North Korea threatening you with missiles is absolutely terrifying, there’s no denial about that. If you’re really worried and need someone to confide your fears in, my DMs/ask box are always open for you. Hope you guys do better soon, and best wishes for your safety <3 :(

“If foreign names are so hard why don’t you have trouble pronouncing [insert celebrity here]?”

Because their name is well-known and repeated throughout TVs and newspapers and magazines EVERYWHERE so naturally, people will become familiar with names they’ve heard a lot and know how to pronounce them properly.

It’s not a conspiracy to purposely mispronounce your non-English name, nor is it English speakers not caring enough. We just haven’t heard your name a million times.
