Update: “Desperate Housewives” producers apologize to Filipinos

That was fast. Yesterday, I reported on the bubbling discontent of Jesse Jackson Filipinos demanding an apology from the “Desperate Housewives” show for a joke about Filipino medical schools.

Looks like playing the grievance card worked. The show has apologized:

Makers of the hit US television series ‘Desperate Housewives’ have apologized for a slur against Filipino medical workers that caused uproar here.

The apology was sent to Philippine broadcaster ABS-CBN’s bureau in the United States and aired here Thursday by its cable news channel, ANC, following protests by the Manila government.

“The producers of the show and ABC studios offer our sincere apology for any offence caused by the brief reference in the season premier,” ANC quoted the statement as saying.

“There was no intent to disparage the integrity of any aspect of the medical community in the Philippines,” it said.

“There was no intent to disparage the integrity of any aspect of the medical community in the Philippines.”

Well, of course there was. They should have stopped before that weasel cop-out.

Exit question: Will Filipinos demand sensitivity training and p.c. rehab?

Exit question number two: Who will step up and replace Islamic Rage Boy with Filipino Rage Doctor?


Thanks to David Lunde for the photoshop.
