Minegishi Minami to be demoted into Kenkyusei (Research Student)

Regarding AKB48's Minegishi Minami scandal by Shunkan Bunshun earlier, it seems that the management already find the solution.

From tgsk’s G+:

About the issue involved Minegishi Minami, which was reported by the weekly magazine released today, as for the punishment we have decided as followed, so we would like to report it to the fans.
今回の報道により、ファンの皆さまに多大なるご迷惑をかけた峯岸みなみを、2013年2月1日付でAKB48 研究生に降格処分とする。
We will demote Minegishi Minami, who had caused many troubles to the fans from this issue, into research student (kenkyuusei) as the punishment from February 1, 2013.
In addition, I will report about the future activities some other time as soon as the details are decided.
Once again, I want to apologize to the fans for the sudden anouncement. I’d like to thank you all for the supports to AKB48 in the future.

Seriously, it hurt so much to see Miichan in this condition. I think this is the first time she cut her hair. Well, congrats to Shunkan Bunshun for destroying her and Masuda Yuka's career in just a few months. And to think that Miichan is 1st generation member! T-T But at least she didn't graduate.... Miichan's fans, show your love to her in the next election!

Edit: Okay, I think this is too sweet to be ignored. 1st generation member (minus Kojima Haruna). Even Acchan's there! Apparently, Takamina also cut her hair (It is far more shorter than when she get haircut because her hair burned). Not sure about Acchan though, because I think she wear extension before, so I don't know her original hair length From Itano Tomomi's twitter

Fuck this. Being in the position that she feels that she needs to shave her head and apologize in such a way is messed up and wrong in so many ways. There is obviously something wrong with the system that allows delusional fans to control someones love life so strongly.
Hope everything works out for her in the end. Life blows, but idol life blows worse.
Not sure how much sense I'm making or not making here, but that's my 5 cents.

PS That picture in the end is so sweet. It's great to see her friends standing by her side. I think that is something truly precious.

PSS This issue has been bothering me way too much. I usually don't care at all about celebrity dating scandals, but this is too much.

I git half way through the video and then couldn't watch anymore :s I'm not a Minami fan but I feel soo sorry for her ;-;
Personally I don't think what she did was wrong. I mean just because she stayed over at a guy's house doesn't mean they slept together, there is no evidence. Overreaction?? I mean on the guy's side there is like zero news. Talking about gender discrimination :/

Though it was nice seeing the other AKB girls supporting her including Aachan ^^ Ganbatte Minami! ~

This so disgusting. She's a human and you expect her to not act like one? Ugh!

How is she even at fault?
A girl's hair is so precious how can you even imagining
touching it?!
It's the same with the IU x Eunhyuk scandal.
IU apologized and went through all the hardships.

i don't care that she supposedly chose to do this on her own, the company is still responsible for perpetuating a sick culture in which a grown woman is made to feel such intense shame for OMG GASP HAVING A SOCIAL LIFE that she debased herself in penance. and that's fucked up.
