MHC DEMANDS GENUINE PUBLIC APOLOGY TO THE FILIPINOS FROM ADAM CAROLLA AND THE CBS (tags)
We are speaking on behalf of the Filipino American immigrants and the Filipino people in general on your recent public pronouncement against us. In your radio program you mentioned that Filipino world boxing champion Manny Pacquiao is illiterate and prays to chicken bones. You further added that the Philippines is nothing but Pacquiao and sex tours. Really, Mr. Carolla, these whole racist remarks from a supposedly intelligent person like you, being part of the media, is all about you and not us.
LETTER TO THE RACISt ADAM COROLLA (tags)
It is high time that you practice professionalism in media, Mr. Carolla. On behalf of the Filipino American immigrants and the Filipino people whom you have unnecessarily hurt, we demand a real and genuine public apology from you . This time we will not take your racial tirade sitting down. We are writing to your sponsors for them to withdraw their support as your program is not worthy of public trust and respect.
