​The Chainsmokers are under fire again for cracking an inappropriate joke, this time in China

The Chainsmokers were in Shanghai last week performing at the inaugural ULTRA China and while being interviewed backstage, one of the pair made a joke deemed culturally inappropriate and netizens are not pleased.

The incident was caught on video, which has since been removed by The Chainsmokers but later uploaded again by a swift user, and it shows an interviewer asking Alex Pall if he’d bring his dog on tour with him, to which Pall replies “Well, I don’t know if I’d bring her to China.”

Folowing the backlash, the comment was the followed up by an apology from Pall on Twitter, in which he links back to stopyulinforever.org, a movement dedicated to stopping the controversial annual Yulin Dog Meat Festival.

Korean pop group BTS have also faced backlash for their affiliation with the dup following their recent announcement of an upcoming collaboration.

Watch a video of the incident below.
