People Are Seriously Pissed About Chainsmokers' Racist Joke About Asians Eating Dogs

In a now-deleted promo video that the duo shared online, Pall and his bandmate Drew Taggart are seen being interviewed by an Asian reporter. Another wrote, "no offense but if the chainsmokers can post a video of them making a racist joke imagine what they say behind closed doors". Answering a question about taking his pet dog on tour, Pall said that he'd take her everywhere with him if he could, before quipping: "Well, I don't know if I'd bring her to China".

On Twitter, people were shocked at Pall's apparent joke, particularly considering the fact that he made it in China to a Chinese interviewer.

'I mean if she could come anywhere, I'd bring her.

The Chainsmokers have apologised for a racist joke made during an interview after outrage on social media.

The video was originally posted on their Twitter account but has since been taken down - an astute Twitter user saved and re-uploaded it.

What do you think about The Chainsmokers' comments and subsequent apology?

"We would never intentionally do anything to upset our fans and we apologize if it offended anyone", the statement reads.

Most people in China feel that events such as the infamous Yulin Dog Meat Festival has "harmed China's reputation", state news agency Xinhua reports.

A 2016 poll showed that nearly 70 per cent of Chinese people claim to have never eaten dog meat, while 52 per cent want the controversial dog meat trade completely banned.

The comments roll in just after The Chainsmokers recently announced they're collaborating with South Korean boy band, BTS.
