The Chainsmokers apologize for making insensitive comment while in China

Alex Pall and Drew Taggart previously said that they're not bros but actually just "making fun of bros", but their apparently elevated level of satire doesn't mean they're going to get a pass for their recent racist joke that targets Asian people.

The video has since been deleted from their Twitter, but not before it had a huge impact online, with followers divided down the middle on how to take the comment.

The interviewer asked: 'During tours, do you bring your dog along with you?'

The Chainsmokers have apologised for a comment made in a recent interview in China, in which the duo's Alex Pall joked that he was anxious that Chinese people might eat his dog. He mentions that he would love to but she's "ill-behaved", following up with, "Well, I don't know if I'd bring her to China", before cracking into awkward laughter.

Smoove are also back, ditto Bob Einstein as the incomparably voiced Marty Funkhauser. Naturally, series regulars like Jeff Garlin , Susie Essman , and J.B.

Pall appears to laugh, and it looks like Taggart finds the statement humorous as well. It concerns itself with stopping the Yulin Dog Meat Festival, during which 10,000 dogs are slaughtered and served as food. His response - to an Asian interviewer, no less - very much seemed to be poking fun at the tradition of eating dog meat in some regions of China.

This afternoon, The Chainsmokers posted an apology on Twitter to fans.

The video was originally posted on their Twitter account but has since been taken down - an astute Twitter user saved and re-uploaded it. He says the group would "never intentionally do anything to upset our fans and we apologize if we offended anyone".
