Japan PM criticised for his luxurious lounge setting on a Twitter video

Agency News

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has prompted an angry response from some Twitter users for showing him in the middle of a luxurious lounge setting on a Twitter video.

In the Twitter video telling people to stay at home, Shinzo Abe is seen lounging on a sofa with his dog, drinking tea and reading. Abe's video also features his pet dog.

Soon twitteratti came with a angrious retort. "Who do you think you are?" became a top trend on Twitter, with users saying Abe's message ignored the plight of those who were struggling to make a living amid the coronavirus outbreak.

"At a time when people are fighting for survival, to show a video of such luxury ... one can't help but wonder, 'who do you think you are?'," one Twitter user said.
