The photo dates back to 1995
Austrian music duo Kruder & Dorfmeister have posted a photo of Richard Dorfmeister that some are deeming to be racist.
The duo, comprised of Peter Kruder and Richard Dorfmeister, shared an image of Richard Dorfmeister taken in Japan in 1995.
In the photo, Dorfmeister is seen pulling his eyes back, which is widely recognised as a racist gesture towards Asians.
“K&D Tokyo, Japan 1995” is written on the picture and the caption accompanying the post simply reads “@richarddorfmeister in Tokio 1995”.
Whilst one commenter described Dorfmeister to be “high as fuck”, others called him out for being “Chinese eyed” and for his “racist humour.”
Kruder & Dorfmeister are known for electronica tracks such as ‘High Noon’ and ‘Useless’. Their most recent track ‘Johnson’ was released at the end of last month.
Last month, a racist woman was caught on camera harassing an Asian father and mocking his “slanted eyes”.
