'Asian Girlz' Going Down

Due to Threats

The band behind the controversial song "Asian Girlz"  ... is getting bullied into censorship -- telling us they're yanking the video because the backlash has gone from playful to threatening.

Day Above Ground Skyped into TMZ Live to respond to the outrage ... saying, "It’s a real thing and we didn’t expect it to be such a backlash."

Drew Drumm, Joe Anselm, and Mike Tourage told us they're pulling the video from the Internet on Saturday ... "for the safety of ourselves and for everybody we know. We don’t want anybody to get hurt."

They hinted some of the models in the video were receiving threats ... along with the band members.

If you haven't seen it ... the lyrics to "Asian Girlz" are laced with stereotypes, like ... "I love your creamy yellow thighs" -- and, "Ooh your slanted eyes."

The guys insist the song was intended to be "satire" -- but check out their faces during "TMZ Live" ... they're taking the whole matter very seriously now. And now here's the music video:

Just watched the video and they're horrible. Quite a bit of money on a video for a bunch of bad singers. Racist? Don't know, but I don't think anyone has to worry about a lot of air play from these guys.

Every racist, Asian stereotype. I just saw a video of some white dudes in Korea, abusing this Asian girl and making fun of her. Awful stuff. they tried to lie and say they were acting.

The same thing needs to happen to that piece of crap Miley Cyrus released. Promoting drugs? Get a life loser. And then she lied so it would get played on the radio. Only a pathetic loser would do that.

I would like to see a completely black black band come out with a song "she's my little white biatch" with her small little **** that I bang till it's raw.. she's my litte white biatch...

let's see how that goes down with everyone saying this Asian "inspired' song is not racist.

thought so... learn a little.
