'Realize how your actions could affect other people.' What the act-age author did was bad on its own, but its worse when yoy consider how it affected the artist, the jump staff, the fans, and people who were working on the stage play or producing merchandise.

Click on it and Twitter should offer a machine translation.
He gives some weak reason, but most likely the Editors told him to delete it. It's common to see Mangaka make a tweet where they give an opinion, and then delete it soon after.

Well unless you have a twitter account (I dont) there isnt an option for machine translation. It thank you for giving a rough idea of what he said.

Reading through the lines, I think the implication is something like "the act-age writer forgot his priorities which should be how your actions make the important people around you feel".

My guess is, don't do anything that would offend your editor or boss or company owner or co-workers, to the point you get fired or your contract cancelled. I think it is a pretty strong understatement, given the nature of the alleged original offense by the other author. I'm trying to allow for these folks being Japanese in my American guesses; their use of understatement is difficult to comprehend for me.

I don't have it either, but this is what machine translation elsewhere gave;

I deleted that tweet earlier because I felt that I shouldn't be too careless in my position.

He sounds like he's disappointed in the writer's actions and how it inconvenienced a lot of people, including the victims, the artist, the staff, the fans, and the people who were working hard in producing the stage play.

Two important rules in my life.

#1 Don't do stupid things
#2 Accept the consequences if you break rule #1

Side rule #2A
If you see someone trying to fight against rule #2 just let them be. Adding in your 2 cents just makes you violate rule #1 and you end up being dragged into the problem.

Yeah, that's what the gist of it sounded like to me when i read the twitter MTL of his tweet.
