UPDATE: Desperate Housewives pokes fun of our med schools

Ouch! (rimshot...)

Here's what Teri Hatcher said that some people found offensive:

"Before we go any further, can I check those diplomas? ‘Coz I just want to make sure they’re not from some med school in the Philippines."

What's the big deal here? It's a joke, and it reminded us of the nursing exams fiasco and the inept handling of the situation by the arroyo administration. But some people are overreacting.

More: Now Malacanang gets in on the action and demands Desperate Housewives' apology for "racial slur."

Ahhhh, if only Laguardia's MTRCB were in control...

UPDATE: Michelle Malkin comments.

UPDATE: ABC has apologized for slur.

Sabi ni Michelle Malkin sa apology ng ABC:

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...

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?

Isa pa ito...
