Amidst the bleak news related to the Covid-19 pandemic, the world was served with another piece of bad news yesterday: Netflix’s Terrace House star and Japanese pro-wrestler Hana Kimura had passed away.
Her death came after she revealed she implied she was cyber-bullied.
Many, like Hana, were in the prime of their lives, leaving us to mourn over the life and career that could have been. They may not be with us, but they will not be forgotten. We remember some of them here.
