The Chainsmokers are under fire for performing at a jam-packed charity concert in the Hamptons over the weekend.

The duo, made up of members Alex Pall and Drew Taggart, performed for thousands of people in Water Mill, N.Y. during a fundraiser event Saturday that was billed as a "Safe & Sound" gathering that "follows all social distancing guidelines."

Event organizers sold tickets for 600 vehicles and accompanying guests to enjoy the "tailgate experience" safely from the confines of a designated area. 

However, a video from the group's manager, Adam Alpert, showed a massive crowd of people gathered in front of the stage within six feet of one another, despite the event claiming to "meet all local health and safety standards, as well as state regulations."

The group was labeled "straight up irresponsible" by some fans. 

On Monday, New York Health Commissioner Howard Zucker said he was "greatly disturbed" by the event and announced the New York State Department of Health is opening an investigation.

And Gov. Andrew Cuomo tweeted, “We have no tolerance for the illegal & reckless endangerment of public health.”
