Oops! Brother Of Zach McGowan Accidentally Exposes His Bro’s Long History Of Whitewashing

In case you hadn’t heard the news already, there’s a movie in the works about the Ni’ihau Incident set for 2018.

The Ni’ihau Incident occurred on December 7th – 13th, 1941, wherein Imperial Japanese Navy Air Service pilot Shigenori Nishikaichi crash-landed his Zero fighter on the Hawaiian island of Niʻihau after participating in the attack on Pearl Harbor. The incident culminated in Nishikaichi’s death by Ni’ihauans Benehakaka “Ben” Kanahele and Kealoha “Ella” Kanahele, with Ben Kanahele becoming wounded in the process. Ben Kanahele was decorated as a hero for his efforts in stopping Nishikachi, and Hawaiians are told of his heroics to this day.
