Adam Carolla apologizes through Twitter

I believe, you knew this guy named Adam Carolla (US Comedian) already since his name is on stake because of commenting (harshly) about Manny Pacquiao and the Filipinos.

Now, what about it? well, since the topic is in the hot seat, i wanna share an article (thanks to Izah Morales, Yahoo! Southeast Asia, Monday April 5, 2010 05:48pm PHT) about what I read just earlier regarding his being “sorry” to what he had commented earlier (about the Filipinos).

After making harsh comments about Philippine boxing champ Manny Pacquiao and the boxer’s home country last April 1, Adam Carolla has apologized to the Filipino people through Twitter.

“Read your comments. Sorry if I offended many of you. I don’t pre-plan my commentary. I try to be provocative, (and) funny but I crossed the line & I’m sorry.”

After the tweet, Carolla praised Pacquiao on another tweet entry, saying, “By the way, I think Manny is a great fighter.”

REWIND…..

check my blog about his comments (discrimination) to the Filipino people:

https://clementdampal.wordpress.com/2010/04/03/being-a-comedian-is-one-thing-but-being-a-racist-is-another/

As what Izah Morales stated on her/his article:

Filipino-Americans then organized an online petition to demand a public apology from Carolla. The petition said Carolla’s comments were “unnecessary, hurtful, and erroneous.” The petitioners further stated that Carolla failed to recognize that Filipinos and Filipino-Americans have significantly contributed to the betterment of the United States and the world.

“We have worked hard to achieve our American Dream, and you have no right to denigrate us like this, merely to get attention.”

As of this post, there are 947 signatories supporting the petition, which also declared a boycott of Carolla’s program. Reaction to the statements have also appeared on Facebook. Fan account “Filipinos unite against Adam Corolla” have drawn in the most Facebook members at 850.

The petitioners have not made any statement yet on the apology on Twitter as of press time.

Carolla is no stranger to facing criticism. In January 2006, Carolla called the work of Asian Americans a “joke,” eliciting the ire of the Asian American Justice Center, while in 2003 he called Hawaiians the “world’s dumbest people”.

Adam Carolla is a popular figure in the word of stand-up comedy in the United States and was a contestant on the reality-television show “Dancing With The Stars.” He was the longtime comedy partner of Jimmy Kimmel who, ironically, has had Pacquiao as a guest on his talk show, “The Jimmy Kimmel Show” twice.

So, imma’ ask you these questions:

What do you think of Carolla’s apology? Is it enough?or not? Support your choice.

Post your thoughts in the comments below. thanks.

  1. adam carolla is a piece of shit. his opinions doesn’t matter anyway. we know who we are as Filipinos, even the Philippine monkey is way better than him. And looks better than him also. This is my opinion and I will never change it. If that’s they way how he thinks about us Filipinos then the fuck who cares? His life is not worth living. I’m not even jealous if he’s a public figure. A lot of American public figures are congenial and are not racist. He’s a complete moron. To set the record straight, I want Manny Pacquiao to punch him straight right on his face. SO he’ll bleed the crap out of his nose. Good for him.

    • “There seems to be something wrong with a psyche that makes us so vulnerable to getting upset or offended so easily. Filipinos get offended so easily from a perceived indiscretion and are often unable to move on to something bigger or higher than such trivial pursuits. We tend to be consumed with words that should mean nothing to us if they were untrue. This demonstrates a real sign of having an unhealthy ego and insecurity. As someone aptly put it, Filipinos can be onion skinned cry-babies.

      I am therefore inclined to believe that we have not evolved well as a people. The Filipino intellect is still at a lower level in the hierarchy of development. We can attribute it to the simple fact that most Filipinos are not properly educated yet. Due to poverty, most people are more concerned with just satisfying basic human needs like food, shelter and clothing. There are also those Filipinos who have received excellent formal education yet are incapable of harbouring the occasional existential musing or thought that extends beyond their inner primate inclinations. It is not surprising then that only a few are not resistant to change. Indeed, traditional Filipino thinking styles are to blame for our lack of ability to change and to accept the truth. One would think that we somehow prefer to stay the way we are than risk being offended by the truth.”
      An ego is invisible. No one has actually seen it. We are sometimes not aware that our egos are taking us over or consuming us. Filipinos tend to be subsumed by their egos. We can’t seem to make mistakes without blaming others. We pride ourselves in being happy-go-lucky or a people always wearing a smile. But truly, it is what lurks behind those smiles that is scary. Do we really smile because we are happy or because we just want people to see that we are happy? This is another contradiction in itself because we like our soap operas so much and we relate well to the fictional characters that are victims of greed and misfortune but do very little to uplift our circumstances.”

  2. only through Twitter? he should’ve called some newsman to televise his apology (if he is really sincere..i doubt so)….

    SAVE your DRAMAS Adam! We don’t need it, anyways.

  3. I was wondering why all of a sudden this imbecile Adam Carolla would demean Pacman and Filipinos, but I was thinking that the best way to have your 15 minutes of fame is to MAKE STUPID STATEMENTS about a FAMOUS PERSONALITY which is Manny Pacquiao! Well, he got what he wanted, what he desperately craves which is ATTENTION.Poor guy, wanting attention so bad that it’s okay for him to sound and look stupid. (” SORRY ON TWITTER?”) GET YOU’RE BROKE ASS HOME!!!

  5. well, u know, racism and discrimination is everywhere…
    adam carolla, since he’s a figure, people would tend to adhere to something that could’ve ruined his career… talking sh*t about Filipinos, in not new… Philippines and/or Filipinos (figures/masses) have been part of punchlines to many comedians (even Filipino comedians use it).

  6. Get a life people. I don’t know who Carolla is – but I do know the crap he is talking about.

    Sex tours – check with your hotel security guard or taxi-driver. Or if you have $$$ go to Airforce One or Pegasus. Go to any videoke joint mula Aparri hanggang Jolo – and you have GROs. Lots of Japanese go to a major urban center in the Visayas for golf and sex tours!

    Chicken bones – if you tell me you will be weakened by a teenie-weenie blood sample taken a week before a fight – I’d think you practice voodoo. Which reminds about the Tony Paduas and all the albularyos and faith healers, aswangs, manananggal, hilots, and siquijor – chicken bones don’t come close to the crap we have in the islands.

    Now that Carolla has apologized – will the flow of pokpoks stop?

    Will Filipinos start voting for politicans who actually have a brain?

    Will Filipinos vote for a politician that can remove the protectionist claused in the Philippine Constitution?

    So far a choice between a slacker, a washed out actor, and an ethically-challenged candidate as front runners – makes the words “Get your sh*t together Philippines” very appropriate.

    Alec Baldwin, Teri Hatcher, Chip Tsao, Carolla will not be the last word in this continuing episode of Da Pinoy delusion and absurdity.

    Before we ask Carolla what has he done for his people, let’s ask ourselves FIRST – what have we done for our country, why is it in deep sh*t
