THE CHAINSMOKERS IN HOT WATER AFTER MAKING RACIST JOKE DURING INTERVIEW
Fans of The Chainsmokers are horrified after they made a racist joke.
The Chainsmokers are in hot water after making a racist joke in front of an Asian reporter! The duo, which consists of Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart, posted a video in which an interviewer asked Alex if he takes his dog on tour. While Alex said he doesn’t, he said there’s only one place he wouldn’t want to travel with his pup- and fans are not impressed.
“But I love her, I mean if she could come anywhere I’d bring her — well, I don’t know if I’d bring her to China,” Alex responded. The interviewer, who himself was Asian, then turned to the camera and covered his mouth in shock. But Twitter users didn’t find the video funny and couldn’t understand why they’d post it to their social media account.
Tons of fans began tweeting their disappointment in the pop duo. “Alex Pall made a racist remark. Don’t group him up with Andrew, together they are @TheChainsmokers but seriously… Andrew was so embarrassed,” one person wrote. Another said, “No offense, but if the chainsmokers can post a video of them making a racist joke, imagine what they say behind closed doors.” The controversial video has since been deleted from The Chainsmoker’s twitter account.
