why update ignore sql query have an impact on replication?

I have a trouble understanding why update ignore sql query would have an impact on replication? Could someone explain a way that I could understand instead of pointing out that it is unsafe for statement-based replication..

Answer Source

This is right on the help page for the UPDATE statement

UPDATE IGNORE statements, including those having an ORDER BY clause, are flagged as unsafe for statement-based replication. (This is because the order in which the rows are updated determines which rows are ignored.) With this change, such statements produce a warning in the log when using statement-based mode and are logged using the row-based format when using MIXED mode. (Bug #11758262, Bug #50439) See Section, “Determination of Safe and Unsafe Statements in Binary Logging”, for more information.

Seems clear to me -- what exactly is your question?
