Super exciting!!! Can’t wait to cheer on America 🇺🇸 2/2 Hell to the NO I will never support the Tokyo Olympics until they stop their horrible, horrible treatment of cetaceans by slaughter and profit in Taiji. The pandemic is also a big deal but Taiji is a blight on Japans reputation. Boycott Japan until Taiji stops their slaughter
