      Condoling her death, British professional wrestler Jamie Hayter wrote on Twitter, "Distraught. I don't even know what to say or feel. Numb. I can't express it. RIP Hana Kimura. Such a wonderful human being. The gaijin helper. All the potential. A beautiful soul. Kind. I just can't even put in to fucking words how upsetting this is. I hope you found peace."

      WWE star Mick Foley also paid tribute to her. He wrote, "Hana Kimura was 22. Please let that sink in...22. She had her whole life in front of her. Online bullying should not be part of life. It damn sure should not be part of death. Hana Kimura was 22. #RIPHanaKimura (sic.)."

      Kimura had been subjected to online bullying. In the days following up to her death, she posted cryptic but troubling tweets such as a photo of her cat with the caption 'goodbye'. Her death has led to widespread condemnation of online bullying.
