The Chainsmokers Apologize For Dog-Eating Joke During Interview in China
The Chainsmokers are putting their tails between their legs after Alex Pall made a joke about not bringing his dog to China out of fear it could get eaten.
During an interview Ultra Festival over the weekend, Pall seemed to say that he would bring his dog anywhere in the world except China, according to Buzzfeed. Worse, he seemed to laugh after saying it to the Asian interviewer, who responded by looking straight to the camera in shock.
He's since apologized for the remark on 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," Pall wrote on The Chainsmokers' Twitter account. "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 ended the statement with, "Anyone who wants to help prevent the slaughter of dogs please visit http://www.stopyulinforever.org."
Still, fans weren't instantly forgiving, and quickly hopped on Twitter to tell the Pall what he said was wrong.
The news was came after Andrew Taggert's recent collaboration with South Korean boy band, BTS. Amid the controversy, BTS' involvement with The Chainsmokers came into question. But of course, the BTS fans always have their boys' backs.
