When Jason Segel’s character headed to Shanghai in Monday’s How I Met Your Mother episode, he encountered some familiar faces — well, almost familiar: Alyson Hannigan, Cobie Smulders, and Josh Radnor were all dressed up to look like they were Asian. Viewers took to Twitter to slam the show for putting white actors in “yellowface,” even starting the hashtag #HowIMetYourRacism.

Co-creator Carter Bays responded to those racism claims Wednesday, tweeting that he and fellow showrunner Craig Thomas were “deeply sorry” for the offensive nature of the episode. Read his full Twitter response below:

How I Met Your Mother is in its ninth and final season; the series finale is set for March 31.

Ted, Robin, Barney, Marshall, and Lilly remind us all of the joy of slap bets
