A Taiwanese veteran home has come under fire for holding a controversial Mid-Autumn festival event.

According to the Taoyuan Veterans Home, VAC, Executive Yuan's page, they are a government-run organisation.

Some of its residents, including retired army officers and soldiers who meet other specific requirements, have their stays paid for by the government.

Home apologises

After the clip went viral, the veteran home was criticised for the controversial display.

They have since told Taiwanese news outlet Liberty Times Net that they "deeply regret" what happened.

The clip was apparently recorded on Sep. 7 and was an event specially arranged for residents who have mobility problems.

During the 15-minute performance, the dancer became "overzealous" as she wanted her audience to "feel [her] enthusiasm and energy" by getting close to them.

They added that they are "very sorry" and will be "more cautious" about the events they hold in future.
