Now Psychology Today magazine is apologizing for running the article. An effort is being carried out to get the Japanese author fired from his job at the London School of Economics

Several other authors at Psychology Today authors denounced the article and “racism.” No real attempt was made to factually debunk the article, however. Only claims that such information should be censored.
