On 10th, she wrote on her Twitter, "I was surprised to see that my comment became such a big issue. I don't oppose eating meat. I don't think meat eaters are bad. But, I only oppose factory breeding, because it's also good for human to eat animals that were grown in good and safe environment."
She continued, "Please don't misunderstand just by reading articles. I don't mean to coerce vegetarianism nor criticize eating meat. I just hoped that people will learn how to distinguish what's good and bad."
