Amidst the news of a very distasteful joke from local comedienne Candy Pangilinan who said, “Hindi po ako IGOROT, tao po ako” that lead Baguio and Mountain province authorities to ban and labeled her as “persona non grata” despite her teary-eyed public apology,
another issue with similar inconsiderate thoughts from a Hollywood actor Alec Baldwin on his David Letterman The Late Show-May 12 guesting commenting that he might just get a Filipino-mail-order-bride… wasn’t ofcourse, taken as trivial and funny but another insensitive statement which provoked sharp responses from many Pinoys.
with the local controversy involving starlet Katrina Halili and the unethical voyeur Dr. Hayden Kho’s sexual youtube videos (that gave George Michael’s song Careless whisper another meaning!) resurfacing publicly for two weeks now that lead Senator Bong Revilla calling the issue as PERVERT ACT of the HIGHEST KIND with a demand from the local action-hero/senator for the revocal of Kho’s medical license;
with the premature campaigning of politicians on TV that bugs me and other ANTI-TRAPO Filipinos, one voice just saved the day…
I’m NOT a fan actually, I honestly think she always stresses her larynx too much but her song NOTE TO GOD and her latest Oprah show guesting were fresher than those local headlines!
