Netizens were super impressed by Kemari showing “outstanding character”. They went on to praise Kemari’s father for “raising a fine young man.”
According to the Daily Mail report, a user came up a contrary thought and wrote, ‘I disagree that this video is heartwarming. This kid pulled a struggling fish ashore by a hook through its lip, which is very painful for the fish, and then held it while it gasped for air for more than two minutes while his father filmed the scene.’
