Tiffany has issued an apology for her controversial use of the Japanese flag emoji and the rising sun flag on Korea's Independence Day.

She wrote on her Instagram, "Hello, this is Tiffany. I apologize for causing concern to many people due to my mistake on such a cherished, meaningful day. I'm embarrassed at myself for disappointing people through this mistake, and I'm reflecting on my action. From now on, I'll make sure to remember that a lot of people are watching my actions and seeing my words, so I'll work hard to become a person who thinks deeply so something like this does not happen again. Once again, I'm sorry for disappointing people because I was lacking."


Additionally, viewers of 'Unnies' Slam Dunk' are demanding that Tiffany leave the show. The 'Unnies' Slam Dunk' viewer board has been flooded with demands that Tiffany leave the show after the controversy, even after she apologized.

Korea has a problem. They DEMAND that their culture be respected but have no respect for anyone else's. They also are completely blind to the dangerous and self-destructive aspects OF that culture. This witch hunt over the Rising Sun flag didn't even really kick in until 2013 and then only because it was being used to "justify" a football player's overt bigotry towards Japan during a game between the two (David Ki). That flag has centuries of cultural significance for Japan and is heavily associated with modern day Japan internationally. But the Korean's don't care. Tiffany was simply thanking her Japanese SOnes and showing appreciation for them and letting the rest of her fans know where she was. Koreans don't care. One idols can publicly advocate the land grabbing policies of her government against Korea and get an MC job. Korean's don't care as long as Chinese are buying Kpop. Want our Islands? Sure! No problem. I still like the music but the people are really starting to disgust me at this point. So they are offended? Guess what? I don't care. You want respect you'd better learn how to give it.

Tell me something Lynn. Were you born this much of an inbred ignorant douche or is this a talent you've honed over the years? You're very good at it. But then again most morons who can't counter with fact are.

I'm also noticing that there are a LOT of cowards who keep downvoting statements like this from me and other and yet they don't have any rebuttal. And I know why. They, literally, have nothing to say to counter it. Why? Because I'm right, they know it, and they hate it. Then there are douches like Ms. LeonaLynn there who are inbred redneck 'murkins who actually believe that the U.S. belongs ONLY to them. They big talkers until I roll over their foot and break their toes or put a charge through them. It's always embarrassing to assholes like that when they get their asses kicked by a guy in a wheelchair with only one good arm. Big man, ain'tcha lynn. Bring it bitch. IF you're smart enough to find me.

... and there's the deflection again. Just say it, "BB You're smarter than I am". I know it hurts but the truth would be so liberating for an idiot like you. Now, IF you want to start posting facts, I'd be happy to show you how wrong you are that way. If you want to keep matching wits, I'm gonna feel really guilty. Why? You're unarmed.

You mad? Seems like you didn't understand what I said so here we go again. Stop whining just take a look around. You are nothing. That's all. Nobody cares what you think. They don't give a sht what you think about them. Is this simple fact is too scary for you? Deal with it, whiny fanboy.

I am full korean and I have to admit as much as I don't want to that you are right. This whole scandal was blown out of proportion and Tiffany meant no harm by using that snapchat filter. However Koreans (korean netizens specifically) are ruthless and are extremely prideful in that they will tear you down even if you had no harmful intentions. I would say this is all just bad luck and timing for Tiffany and I really hope this is forgotten soon because I hate how something as ridiculous as this is hurting her career. But I will say that not ALL koreans are like this, it's just the ones that are like this create such issues and then issues like this occur.

This is how I view the situation. Yeah, it's a line from a movie but it's also a truth. And it holds true in any society at one point or another.

It's a snapchat filter right? The timing was all bad for Tiffany to be in Japan and maybe a little forgetful that it's Liberation Day in her country. No doubt, no one should forget important dates and she's been living in SK forever now. But never the less, it's not her fault entirely. She was just letting everyone know she was in Japan right? But unfortunately the snap chat filter had to be the rising as it represents Japan, Tokyo. Which really sucks. I mean it's not her fault that the filter was set out that way. But she should have known at least the importance of the day before snap chatting away. She did issue out an apology so people should at least try and understand that it was an honest mistake.
