The Chainsmokers Are Just The Latest Famous Faces To Be Accused Of Bigotry & Racism — *Sigh*

chainsmokers accused of racism

These celebs must have their publicists working overtime!

While many stars are properly media trained, others often find themselves in sticky situations due to speaking before thinking. Sadly, there are numerous stars who've been pegged as bigots for saying culturally insensitive things. Most recently, The Chainsmokers were put on blast after member Alex Pall said he couldn't bring his dog to China and alluded to the stereotype that the Chinese eat pups.

To make matters worse, this joke occurred during an interview with an Asian reporter at the Ultra China electronic festival. Smh.

And they weren't the only ones to get called out this weekend as, during the Miss America pageant, Miss Texas Margana Wood dragged Donald Trump for handling the Charlottesville tragedy poorly. Be sure to discover the other accused bigots in Hollywood for yourself (below)…

Miss Texas just came for Donald Trump — and we're LIVING for it.

During Sunday's Miss America pageant, Miss Texas Margana Wood was asked to comment on the Trumpster's controversial remarks following the tragic violence caused by white supremacists during the August march in Charlottesville. (In case you forgot, POTUS blamed the violence "on many sides.")

Like most of the country, Miz Wood was disappointed in the way Trump handled the Charlottesville tragedy and did NOT hold back when it came to her answer. With only 20 seconds to comment, Miss Texas relayed:

More Advertisers Pull Spots From The View Even AFTER The Show Featured Dozens Of Nurses!

Well, that plan backfired!

Well, it looks like that strategy was counter-productive.

The View got hit where it hurts — in the piggy bank — when a few sponsors pulled their ads after host Joy Behar began cracking jokes about Miss Colorado's decision to wear scrubs and deliver a monologue about being a nurse during this year's Miss America pageant.

To get back on everyone's good side, the show decided to invite a bunch of nurses on the panel program to prove to audiences — and advertisers — everywhere just how much they love RNs!

Too bad it didn't work.

Three more companies have yanked their commercials during the show's slot, including Party City, Snuggle, and McCormick spices.

They join Johnson & Johnson and Eggland's Best, who paused their promotions on Thursday.

The spice corporation took to Facebook to explain its decision to back out of advertising during The View, writing:
