However, after an outpouring of criticism from fans, the group have formally apologised for the misjudged endeavour.

Crucially, the band also apologised for their previous statement in defence of the idea, now realising they were in the wrong writing that they are "sorry for our sh*tty non-apology yesterday, too. There’s no justifying it. We clearly didn’t get it then. We get it now".
