Disney Japan apologizes for ill-timed tweet on Nagasaki anniversary




- August 9 was the 70th anniversary of the atomic bombing of Nagasaki
- Disney Japan tweeted that day saying the equivalent of its "Alice in Wonderland" line, "A very merry unbirthday to you," which in Japanese is "なんでもない日おめでとう" [roughly: congratulations on an unnotable day]
- Japanese netizens were understandably outraged
- Disney later took down the tweet and apologized saying they would take greater care with the account in the future
