Adam Carolla’s "pathetic bashing" on Manny Pacquiao and the Philippines : A Condemnable Act

News of an American radio show host bashing Manny Pacquiao and the Philippines has been circulating around the internet, radios, televisions and newspapers and is now the talk of the town. I just listened to the podcast myself on Youtube and it breaks my heart big time. Why on earth that there are still uncivilized, barbaric, and idiot people exist like him? I cannot understand the way he thinks and the way he sees life. Maybe he’s living in the world he created for himself. Poor man!!!

Anyway, here are some of the comments of Carolla I transcribed from his podcast:

“Pacquiao doesn’t believe, he says, he doesn’t give blood the month of a fight or a week before a fight because somehow it’s gonna weaken him and what have you.”

“I gotta tell you, if that was a white fighter and probably even a black fighter, if the black fighter was from Atlanta or somewhere like that, someone would go, ‘What the f**k are you talking about? Give your drop of blood. That’s not gonna make a difference.”

“But because he’s from the Philippines and because he’s prayin’ to chicken bones and stuff like that, everyone’s kinda like, ‘Well you gotta respect him for his belief system.’ No you don’t. He’s a f****n’ idiot.”

“They got this and sex tours, that’s all they have over there. Get your s**t together Philippines. Jesus Christ. I mean, again, it’s fine to be proud of your countrymen. But that’s it? That’s all you got?”

“He’s five foot six, he’s a hundred and forty seven pounds, and he’s good at punching other guys in the head. And you’re gonna build your entire, eh eh eh (stutters in thought), you’re gonna build your entire country around this guy? And then what happens when he loses? What happens when Floyd Mayweather beats him? Then what? The whole country goes into depression? Jesus, you know you’ve got nothing going.

The Philippines, don’t they have sex tours there? (And then somebody says “Nah, you’re thinking of Thailand.”) Ahh, same difference… See if they can do a sex tour over there in the Philippines too, will you book that for me?”

Ohh… he’s really getting on my nerves!!! I find his comments to be absolutely repulsive. They are racist, degrading, and discriminating at best.

Damn, I have a lot of both visceral and intellectual reactions to this, but I won’t bother wasting my time to defend the Philippines, or Manny, because this poor man is sick and ignorant.

I believe that what he really need right now is that Filipinos, and Asian as a whole will boycott his show, and for him to make a public apology, which he already did in his Twitter Account.

All I want is for him to take full responsibility of his action and learn from it.
