Olympics opening ceremony director dismissed on eve of event
BBC News says the show director of the Olympics opening ceremony has been dismissed, one day before the event is due to be held.
Footage of Kentaro Kobayashi from the 1990s recently emerged in which he seems to be making jokes about the Holocaust.
Japan’s Olympic chief Seiko Hashimoto called out the video saying it ridiculed “painful facts of history”.
His dismissal is the latest in a string of scandals to hit the Games.
