'The Kidd Kraddick Morning Show' on Dallas radio station 106.1 KISS FM wrote a statement of apology on Twitter.
K-pop fans were angry at the show for their disrespect towards EXO's Lay and NCT 127. The hosts of the radio show introduced the Michael Jackson tribute project as new music by Jason Derulo. The K-pop artists contribution was not mentioned. The hosts also mistook NCT 127 and Lay as BTS and repeatedly called them by the wrong group name throughout the song. They eventually realized the K-pop artists are not BTS but said, "So it was just some random group of Asian guys dancing? We just got excited for nothing."
Here is the statement of apology on Twitter:

Fans accepted the apology but some thought the "looking forward to the day everyone on Earth knows NCT and Lay" comment at the end was unnecessary.
