On August 18, 'Unnies' Slam Dunk' stated, "The producers and Tiffany's agency SM Entertainment discussed her recent issue involving the Rising Sun Flag on the National Liberation Day of Korea on August 15. After meeting, we agreed the controversy affected citizen sentiment and decided on Tiffany's leave from the show."

The producers also revealed the remaining members, Kim Sook, Jessi, Ra Mi Ran, Min Hyo Rin, and Hong Jin Kyung, will continue on as 5 with no addition to the cast. The August 19th episode of 'Unnies' Slam Dunk' has also been canceled due to the '2016 Rio Olympics', and reps of the show stated the cancellation has nothing to do with Tiffany's controversy.

The next episode is set to air on the 26th KST.

Shame on all of you who think that Tiffany did this intentionally. Yes, she made a mistake but because she was promoting in Japan for a while, she used that filter and I'm 100% sure that she did not intend to offend Korea/ Koreans in any way. Why would she do that anyway? She got fame, she gets loved and she is well known in Korea, she isn't an attention-whore to try and gain attention or 2mins fame from this. You know what disgusts me the most? She apologizes, yet K-netizens are hunting her down as if she killed billion of people. What about rape in Korea? What about Murder in Korea? What about animal-abuse in korea? What about bullying in Korea? what about blackmailing in Korea? Please fix those things first and do something about that before getting all sensitive and emotional about someone unintentionally having put a filter on snapchat which only lasts like 24 hrs maximum. Grow up K-netz, you really disgust me.

I personally don't think that Tiffany deserves all of this hate, but also I can get where the Koreans are coming from. Keep in mind that not just Koreans, but all Asians have a strong sense of loyalty to their country and that it's not just netizens that are shaking their heads at her.

It wasn't a crime that Tiffany deserved all this. It is so unfair. I believed it was because of her unconscious mistake that she eventually realized when netizens started mocking at her. Tiffany had been a very good idol all this while; like how she try to deliver what she talk in all shows the best that she can. Why does Korean demanding her to leave the show?? DO YOU GUYS REALLY HATE HER OR IS IT BECAUSE YOU NEVER LIKE HER FROM THE START THAT YOU GUYS TRY TO FIND ANY POSSIBLE CHANCES TO GET RID OF HER?? I can imagine how hurt Tiffany at this time. She did apologize. What more that you want from her???

You are just hating. Yes she did a mistake, I totally agree with that but calling it a crime? Really? What is she gaining out of this? Also, there are bigger things to worry about other than snapchat filter.

The K-Netizen Effect: Tiffany will become much more reserved, even moreso than Taeyeon has.

People can forgive but that does not meant they can forget. She got what she deserves.

Yes, death threats, wishing her rape, speaking ill of her mother, witch hunting, scrutinizing and calling her names, and the list goes on. Everything's perfectly ok to do against another human being 🙄
