Filipino Community Demands Apology From Adam Carolla

| Filed under: ZportzPolitik

wenn52979554.jpg

Adam Carolla went off during one of his recent podcasts when the topic of boxer Manny Pacquiao came up.

Carolla started commenting on Pacquiao's refusal to give blood before a fight to prove he's not juicing.

Though according to many, the comments slowly started to turn racist as he joked that Pacquiao “prays to chicken bones” and that the Philippines is “nothing but Pacquiao and sex tours.”

But now, the Filipino American community is demanding an apology from Carolla and CBS radio.

A petition has been started asking for Filipinos to demand a public apology. According to the petition:

It seems that time and time again, “celebrities” and “comedians” feel that it is acceptable to degrade Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in public forums. You would never have said such things about African Americans, as you recognize that your career would plummet, as exemplified by the falls of Michael Richards and Don Imus.

What you need to recognize is that racial hate and ignorance about any group is wrong and unjust. And what you also need to recognize is that your hate towards Asian Americans, the fastest growing racial minority group in the United States, can also lead to your career’s demise too.

CLICK HERE to have a listen to Carolla's comments and decide for yourself.

  1. 1

    The thing is, Carolla does make racist comments about all minority groups and therefore, "You would never have said such things about African Americans" does not fit Adam. It's all a part of his comedy of ranting and raving about everything in this world. If the Filipino community is upset, they should talk to his twins when they're old enough to listen to the podcast.



  2. 2

    That is CRAZY. No apology necessary. COME ON!!!!!!!!!



  3. 3

    Were his comments offensive? Yeah, probably. Were they funny? Yes, most definitely.

    Carolla isn't out just to piss people off, he's just poking fun. Whatever he says will probably offend someone (we will always offend someone, no matter what we say or how hard we try to be "P.C."), but that's not a reason for these people to get all uppity about it. It was a joke, leave it at that.

    Uhm, yea okay thats bullshit, ever watch a Comedy Central roast once in awhile? It's Adam Corolla, the same motherfucker who was apart of a show called "The Man Show" and "Crank Yankers." He's never been known for being Politically Correct. He's said all kinds of degrading shit in the name of comedy ( I personally don't care, just trying to make a point), especially about women, yet these assholes are only bitching about it because they are philipino and he made a Philipino comment, however they made a comment about how if he said things about blacks. Okay well what about the afermentioned shit he's said in other instances? Shut up already.

    Re: kyoung253
    Exactly. Morons.



  6. 6

    They should complain when they contribute more to society than hookers and mail order brides.



  7. 7

    they need to get over it; he's "equal opportunity" when it comes to joking about races. he makes fun of all of them…



  8. 8

    people of all races need to just chill out! Everyone is so up tight these days. If that is how Adam feels then thats fine. Its his right, its his opinion. He should not have to appoligize for anything!!



  9. 9

    Re: Assbleep
    See you're the reason why they feel an apology is warrant.



  10. 10

    ..HMMM..AND YET SOME OF YOU ARE OFFENDED WHEN IT'S GAY BASHING?!



  11. 11

    Never liked you before Adam and I sure dont like you now you racist piece of shit!



  12. 12

    I'm so sick of this nonsense that someone always "owes an apology" to someone crap. Tired of people making a big deal out of nothing.

    Just like the hobags that slept with Tiger . . . why the hell do they think they are owed an apology. They slept with a married man; the entire world knows he's married. If they didn't then they are ignorant. Sick of all of this stuff. . .



  13. 13

    No matter what, you NEVER make fun of a race. It doesn't matter whether or not he made fun of Filipinos. In truth, you just shouldn't turn to racism as a joke. Racism is fucking stupid.



  14. 14

    He shouldn't have to apologize. Damn, no one can say ANYTHING these days without some organization calling for an apology or the celeb being sent to rehab! Whatever happened to free speech?



  15. 15

    I agree that Adam should be able to say what he wants to say…

    I agree that EVERYONE should take a chill pill…

    However, I also feel that if someone wants an apology, they are more than welcomed to ask for one. You don't have to agree with the premise. However, you should respect that.

    It's sad when people aren't witty enough to be funny in a less crass manner.

    Oh and as for Assbleep, you may want to research a little more. God forbid you ever get sick or old. A good chunk of this country's nurses and caregivers are of Filipino descent . PS: Your name is quite befitting.



  16. 16

    Adam Carolla speaks his mind and often tries to push the boundaries a little to see what kind of rise he can get out of people. I don't agree with everything he says, but I like him and often find him humorous. I started watching him on TLC back when he had "The Adam Carolla Project". People need to chill out, let it go, there are more problems in the world than some guy joking around. I live in a place that always where the people are always degraded or made fun of…do I care…no.



  17. 17

    he's a comedian…they make fun of everyone…..grow a life already!!!!



  18. 18

    Who are these Filipinos that have no lives(jobs) to do this?



  19. 19

    Way to bring out the "if this were about black people" card.



  20. 20

    I've been to the Philippines, if you are not rich it is one sick, miserable, and reeks of utter poverty beyond belief; Adam is correct!



  21. 21

    I think Adam Corolla should apologize….AFTER Filipinos apologize for being so retarded :)



  22. 22

    Oh please Perez. Adam Carrola is exactly like you. Everyone just rolls their eyes and says "he's an asshole, what do you expect?"



  23. 23

    Well, the joke's on you guys complaining. First of, he does NOT work for CBS, he completely funds his podcasts. He doesn't have sponsors, or others interfering w/ what his says such as land radio, FCC or some other bullshit; and therefore, no way you'll hear an apology.



  24. 24

    Number one: i doubt its racist. ive heard it and its a fuckin joke, get over it.
    Number two: these people in the comments, there mock outrage is sooo over the top.

    and finally.

    i think its funny how perez and all these people are outraged, but nobody bats an eye when a 30 year old perez hilton maked lustifull comments about the underage zach efrons and/or taylor lautners of the world.



  25. 25

    Every negative feedback is no different to what Hitler did to Jewish people, all of you should be ashamed. What if Adam commented on that topic? For sure he would get in trouble. Don't worry, when you're old and dying you'll realize how much you've wasted your time hating on people.

    AZN ppl get really annoying about shit like this. Remember the Miley incident? Those fuckers are some of the most racist people ever! They should just fuck off, and if their country is so great they should go back there and shut the fuck up, but they don't because it's just a bunch of shit. Their only way out is lonley old white guys looking for young girls or boys to fuck.



  27. 27

    The rule is one cannot make derogatory comments about black people and gay people. All other groups are fair targets for mediocre and envious comedians who are desperate for attention. Apparently Michael Richards and Don Imus didn't know that rule. No need for an apology from Carolla, he knew the rule and he is free to spew out his racist diatribe about any group except for the two mentioned earlier.



  28. 28

    Quoted from the petition: "You apologized to the Asian American community before, but it seems that you have not yet learned your lesson."
    …And he never will. So why waste time fishing for an apology from an ignorant man? It will be in all ways insincere and meaningless.



  29. 29

    Re: alanbrickman
    Your mother is a fucking whore and you were born in a family of sluts and idiot pigs. Your children eat shit and looks like little demons.

    Okay chill out I am just being witty and funny!



  30. 30

    Some people are just born racist, and some people are just born idiots, embracing this brand of racism as long as it is HILLARIOUS, next thing this Idiots will do is to tell their children that it is ok to poke fun at other races as long as it is FUNNY. Right! and we wonder why there are so many HATE crimes and racial genocide in the world GEEZ! RACISM IN ANY FORM IS NOT COOL!!!!!!



  31. 31

    Re: msloriga
    You're a crazy bitch yourself you know that? your mom's a whore and your whole family pig sluts…

    I'm just being witty and exercising my freedom of speech. No apology necessary, COME ON!!!



  32. 32

    Re: Carolla is a racist – bullshit, hes an equal oportunity offender. he make fun of all races, credes, sexual orientation, he makes fun of himself, he says aweful things about parents. right now im hearing him say something about mexicans, and I am mexican, and i can roll it off my back. and by the way, his comment wasn't directed to philipino people, it was about the country. If I said: america kills 4 years old children in Irak, I would be accurate, but I know that whats fucked up is the country and the people running it and no its fair people.



  33. 33

    Re: evaeve – You must be joking… I hope.

  34. bexii says – reply to this


    34

    wow, i can't believe how ignorant some of you people are. yes, the philippines is a country torn with poverty but do americans really think that their country is any better. there are prostitutes, criminals, impoverished families and crazies all throughout america too. and american culture is almost synonymous with sex culture - this is obvious from just watching television. and it is true any where around the world that if you don't have money life is going to be hard and that includes america. i just don't understand how you can insult a country for being impoverished as if that is what they want. i don't care whether or not this guy apologizes because he is not worth a damn but the fact is that people, including those leaving some of these comments, are stereotyping and putting down an entire nation and that is wrong — especially if you have idea what you are talking about.

    P.S.

    we, filipinos, are not retarded and we do have lives.



  35. 35

    He was being funny!!

  36. bexii says – reply to this


    36

    additionally, just to let you know if you already didn't, you "americans" who are telling asians to get out of the US and go back to there own country are immigrants too. unless you are an aboriginal than this is not your home country, and you are living on stolen land. so you can get the fuck out too.



  37. 37

    I guess Adam should go full swing at batting racist jokes towards other impoverished nation like say Haiti, since some idiots here thinks it would be HILLARIOUS and yeah it's funny…IDIOTS!!!!!Racism is STUPID!!!

  38. FMB says – reply to this


    38

    BOO HOO… We got made fun of by a comedian… What exactly is your point again? Oh yeah - NO POINT AT ALL! Comedians make their living making fun of ALL groups of people including races. Do you have any idea how boring and sanitized your life would be without comedy? GROW THE FUCK UP AND LEARN TO LAUGH AT YOURSELF!!! That's what we do in America. If you don't like it - go back to the Phillipines — Yeah exactly what I thought - it IS fucking better here so suck it up and learn to toss some jokes back at the crackers - Heck, maybe you could even become the next Filipino Comedy superstar instead of being such a whiny bitch.



  39. 39

    Re: FMB – FMB is a redneck, trailer park thrash, who likes taking it up in his ass, like most ignorant, arrogant Americans.



  40. 40

    Will somebody please post the Official Rules of What You Are Allowed to Make Fun of and What you Aren't? It is getting ridiculous. Anybody who knows Adam Carolla's comedy knows that this is just his style. He puts down everybody. It is funny. People are so damn uptight.
    And you are damn right he never would have made a comment about the African American community. That is the one rule EVERYBODY knows. White people are not allowed to make fun of black people in any way shape or form. To do so means that we are racist, black-hating assholes who deserve to rot in hell. And yes your career will be ruined. Have you ever listened to a black comedian's routine. They almost always are filled with insults towards white people. And as a white person, I can say that a lot of the time, they are very funny and I laugh. Yet, if we make a joke about black people…the world is going to end. I am so sick of it.
    This world is way to politically correct and uptight.
    If I were Adam Carolla, I wouldn't apologize for anything. He was stating his opinion. If he loses fans, so what? At least he is not selling out or trying to be somebody he is not just to make a little money.



  41. 41

    Re: Assbleep – You are such an idiot and ignoramus.



  42. 42

    As the niece of a fat person, and the sister of a drug addict and the mother of a small child, I would like to start a petition that Perez Hilton give a formal and public apology to everybody who fits in one of these groups for all the nasty terrible insults he has publicly made over the years.



  43. 43

    WRONG: Asian Americans are not the fastest growing minority group, its Latin Americans.



  44. 44

    It makes me laugh when people say, "They shouldn't get offended, it's just a joke"…When do these people have the right to tell another WHAT THEY SHOULD FEEL AND HOW THEY SHOULD RESPOND???!

    The world doesn't revolve around you, you know! There are other people with feelings, too…hello?!



  45. 45

    Hallelujah!!! Adam has apologized and see the error in his over the line racist comments…Hopefully some of the idiots who left racist comments here should take noticed, and if I offended anyone with my comments, my apologies, I only left those to prove my point that racism is no joking matter. yes it's meant to be funny, but what he said was totally not funny and uncalled for.



  46. 46

    If some people are offended, they can demand an apology. It's their right. We, on the other hand, have no right to tell them how they should think, feel or what they should do.



  47. 47

    Adam still works with CBS radio — they hoped on the Bandwagon after all of Adam's fans followed him from the morning show but they don't have control like they used to over the content.

    Paint him as a racist if you want, but when it comes down to it, Adam provides social commentary and isn't a racist at heart. When he's in comedian mode, he does make racist, sexist, bigoted comments but Adam is not any of that — there's a reason he has a wife, kids and friends of all genders and races.



  48. 48

    Comidians such as Adam Corolla say such comments bc they aren't funny and feel the need to use easy material, Leno does it too… Pacquiao IS the best and he's all natural. He didn't do the test simply bc he wasn't required.



  49. 49

    Re: bexii – RIGHT ON!!! I hate when people say people should "go back to where they came from" and shit like that; it's like, no, YOU leave! I can't believe all these white people who think they have some sort of claim here!



  50. 50

    Re: luckystrike – Thank you!

    I'm Filipino American and, yes, I believe that sometimes, Filipino's get a a bit over-uppity about things. But, what Adam said was really crossing the line. It really paints a horrible picture of the Philippines and its people and for those who don't have a lot of exposure to the culture, this might be the only picture they see.



  51. 51

    Re: Jared – Ugh you're ignorant!



  52. 52

    Re: Jared – I am amazed by your idiocy. Filipinos aren't saying that their country is great. Life in the Philippines is tough, obviously, as its a third world country. However, Filipinos are a people who are proud of their culture and when someone says something derogatory against them, they won't simply sit back and let that go on.



  53. 53

    Stupid and stupider.
    If you "demand an apology" from someone, it's not gonna be all that sincere is it?

    One the other hand, Carolla has always been a retard, so they deserve each other.



  54. 54

    Re: kyoung253 – So what if he's not racist? His not being racist does not make the comments he says any less hurtful…



  55. 55

    It really wasn't particularly offensive to anybody without a stick up their rears.



  56. 56

    Oh my goodness, lighten up people! I'm half filipino, and it didn't affect me at all. It was just a crude comment, that just needs to be forgotten. I've heard a lot worse.



  57. 57

    Simple rule about making fun of people in a public forum–you gotta be a part of them to be considered funny. Otherwise, keep the joke in your backyard while drinking beers with your buddies. Simple rule.
    "sex tourism in the Philippines is an real and devastating problem affecting tens of thousands of girls and women; a century of bad US foreign policy is partially responsible for the extreme poverty and inopportunity that fuel such intense Filipino pride over an exception like Manny."
    People who find that funny are dumb and sick.
    Thank you Perez for posting.



  58. 58

    to those who don't think its offensive…well wait till this asshole offends you whether its racially or not then you'll be singing a different tune. No matter what the context being racist for no real damn reason is just low and just reflects how many more morons like you guys who contribute nothing to society but a number in that category.



  59. 59

    I just don't see reason why Filipinos are considered stupid and illiterate. If Filipinos are, what do you call Americans calling their phone carriers asking why is their power-drained mobile phone not turning on?



  60. 60

    what Adam said , was no where near funny. he insulted not ONE person but a WHOLE COUNTRY. he deserves to apologize , i dont no who the fuck he thinks he is. yeah , maybe to you its funny , and blah blah blahhh but if you happen to be from there , you wouldnt think it is , now would you?
    and sure , i get it. its his "style" , well he better fukin change it. its not right , and hes going to end up being beat down
    what do you guys think? ppl wont react to it? you MUST be retarded then



  61. 61

    Re: alanbrickman
    The ignorance in the American Public is outrageous - and you pride yourselves in being the land where people can be treated as equals?
    How about if I said:
    Americans are nothing but drunken fat idiots who screw their sisters, eat mayo and bread sandwiches, enslaved blacks for thousands of years, can't even find their country on a map, don't know many pennies are in a dollar, or who pledge allegiance to the flag, even though they don't know what allegiance means.

    While I wholeheartedly do not believe the statement above, does that get under your skin? Well, now you know why it got under Filipinos. I will admit the Filipino reaction is perpetuated by the fact most third world countries look for validation of themselves by the first world. Well, this goes to prove, that in most cases, the lead isn't always where you want to be.

    Yes America, you can buy most things, but giving respect is free. So give it.
    Believing the world will respect you while thinking comments like that are acceptable is the reason why respect for you is not returned.



  62. 62

    i made an account on this site just to comment on this….. this shit is ridiculous. how many of you who are saying "no big deal" are Filipino? most likely none of you… its different when its your country and your people being talked about… you dumbasses probably have no sense of culture or pride for your people.. of course this is an outrage!! ANYTHING is becoming more and more acceptable in our society which is why you all feed into the bullshit that this is ok. IT IS NOT OK! You all are probably the same people that laughed when michael richards used the n-word in his performance. this world is fucked up.. because YOU all think shit like this is ok.

  63. YAHOO says – reply to this


    63

    Let say what If it was the African-American community that he slammed? people would bring out torches right? What if towards Hispanics? same thing right? But since it was the little known minority group ITS REALLY OK!? ITS JUST A JOKE?! YEA RIGHT! I cant believe the you people. The HYPOCRISY. What Adam said to the Filipino Community was like saying to the Black people as Sub-Human N***r People. The only thing left he did not say was that Filipino People eat shit! That is how offensive it was. The thing is many Americans do not know really a lot about the Philippines yet and I am afraid that the idiots who listen to Carolla would easily absorb the impression about the Philippines. And the jokes and stereotype would continue.

  64. YAHOO says – reply to this


    64

    Just let it go… cause it is not the Black people he offended. *roll eyes* Philippine has always been Americas Allies dating back the Spanish-American war. Majority of Filipinos has no hatred towards American. Filipino Admires American People. I live in the Philippines for 18 long years and NOT ONCE did I hear anything from the Philippine Pop-Culture bashing Americans offensively like what Adam did to the Filipinos. because this is way out of line. there is a difference between Edgy Comedy and Racism. Filipinos and Americans fought together against the Japanese during WWII. They gave their lives so that we can win the Pacific front. Its jut sad that this what Americans would give in return. And Americans still wonders why other Country hates them? lol



  65. 65

    I just happen to pass by this site and as I read the comments of people here I am really disappointed and really offended with their comment..now tell me is it wrong for me to feel this way..people here are saying like filipino are good for nothing and they are saying that filipino contribute nothing in this country..the only thing that I can say to all those narrow minded people posting comments here "it is never funny to hurt anyones feeling either you intentionally do it or not" its like youre saying that its okay to kill someone just because they are dying..on for those people saying that we havent contribute anything in this country, look around you most of the people working in your hospitals and taking care of your elderly people are we FILIPINOS and I am proud to tell you that now I am making a difference in a life of people in this country I am taking care of american abandoned by their family because of their disabilities..not so many people cant do what we are doing..so you people next time you open your mouth or right something please think about it and look around you, you will find a filipino (whom you called dumb, stupid and has no life) doing something good for this country, while you are sitting in the comfort of your own room bashing filipino!!!!!



  66. 66

    Just to let everybody know, during World War II, the Americans are indebted with the Filipino Guerillas that saved the lives of hundreds and thousands of them in the hands of the Japanese. (ITS HISTORY). Carolla is not just making fun of anybody in particular, but instead making funny jokes about the nationality and the country of the person that where he came from. Just take note, I worked in the hospital and if ever I or any of my friends will be taking care of you or may encounter your name or any of your immediate family in the hospital, we will make fun of you, too. What do you think about that? Comedy is fun but hitting below the belt and being racist is not funny anymore. That will be imprinted in your name till the day you die. Watch your mouth and your step!
