The "Closer" hitmakers have come under fire for making a racist comment during an interview in Japan.
In the now-deleted video interview, Alex Pall is asked if he'd bring his dog on tour with him.
"Well, I don't know if I'd bring her to China," he responds before erupting into laughter.
Yeah, nah. Racism is not funny.
But the band certainly seemed to think it was as they uploaded the video to their Twitter.
However, after noticing the backlash they were receiving, the boys removed the vid.
The band have since issued an apology via Twitter.
"I made a comment in an interview about being hesitant to bring my dog, Cheddar, to China, because I have read reports about dogs being slaughtered in certain provinces,” the note reads. “We originally posted a video to share how much we love China and our fans there. We would never intentionally do anything to upset our fans and we apologize if we offended anyone.”
He continued: “Anyone who wants to help prevent the slaughter of dogs please visit http://www.stopyulinforever.org.”
Do better next time pls boys.
