Fans of the Australian chatshow have demanded that Channel Ten bosses sack the television presenter after she and George Negus mocked the intelligence and sexual abilities of Victoria Cross medal recipient Ben Roberts-Smith.
Ten bosses, however, have insisted that they will not be firing Stynes, telling the Herald Sun: "Yumi remains a valued member of The Circle team and we are all focused on moving forward."

The network spokesperson also said that it is supporting the star in the aftermath of an online hate campaign that has forced them to censor The Circle's Facebook page.
It is believed that physical threats were made against the star, some involving her children. The Ten representative said: "We are concerned about the extreme nature of some of those comments and are monitoring them closely."
Various sponsors have boycotted The Circle since the incident last week, including Swisse Vitamins, Jamaica Blue, Mirvac Hotels and Resorts and Big4 Holiday Parks.
