Singer Ivy has come forward to apologize after posting an insensitive Instagram post concerning the Asiana Airlines accident at San Francisco yesterday.Her post had read, "Thanks to the Asiana Airlines incident, 'Inkigayo' is now 12 minutes shorter, chances of me being cut out is 99% #what", in reference to the fact that she had been scheduled to perform on the popular music show.This had been written before the decision was made to cancel 'Inkigayo' completely for the evening. When her post began attracting negative attention for what some perceived as being thoughtless and disrespectful, she quickly came forward with an apology."I'm very sorry...I didn't mean it in that way," she wrote. "I was out of line... and I didn't delete the replies.. my last post sounded so immature so I re-posted the whole thing.. sorry."Not long after, it was announced that SBS had cut the episode entirely, because it was deemed inappropriate to have a music show air so close to a special report on the crash.
