While Girls' Generation's Tiffany has been the center of harsh criticism from Korean netizens for her recent SNS posts, Japanese netizens portrayed mixed reactions toward her controversy. 


Some are standing by Tiffany's side, defending the star by saying "Koreans are so negative and critical against such a cute person", "I guess people from other countries also think the rising sun flag has a cool design", "I think Tiffany knew it. Awesome flag", "Why is this an issue? Koreans are overreacting", and more. 



Others, however, seem discontent toward Tiffany's apology, and commented, "Don't come to Japan if you don't like us", while some even threatened the star with the words, "Do you think Japanese fans are just going to sit here and watch?" 


How do you think Tiffany should handle the controversy?

    Over reacting. Just stfu and move on with life. Instead of worrying on celebrity issues, worry about school, work, ect.

    It's their country's history and culture we international fans can't and don't have the right to judge anyone but it's really going overboard ... It's sensitive only because it was a japanese flag the way I see it is that she wrote babes for her photo with the members w and the flag ment that they were in japane and the heart is love for the fans .. She should've been more careful knowing how sensitive koreans are but she already apologized ... what more do you want !!!

    They want blood and yes we DO have EVERY right to critize it. IF this tension and hatred between Korean and Japan continues to escalate, there will be violence and maybe even war. Seeing as the U.S. are allies of both countries and heavily invested in them, we'd get dragged into it. They BOTH need to get over this.
