American comedian and television host Adam Carolla recently attacked Manny Pacquiao and the entire Filipino nation with invectives that are totally uncalled for. “Here’s how you know when your country doesn’t have a lot going for it: When everything is about Manny Pacquiao. Get a fu**ing life as a country," Carolla said.
As if that's not enough, the comedian went on to say "All they have over there (in the Philippines) is Manny Pacquiao and sex stores...Get your sh*t together, Philippines!"
Here's the gist of the story according to Examiner.com:
Adam Carolla starts off his vulgar tirade by bashing Manny for not giving blood before a fight. He then proceeds to say that Manny is off “praying to chicken bones” and that you don’t have to respect him because he’s a “fu**ing idiot”. “Someone has to tell him that it doesn’t make a difference.”[/i]“Here’s how you know when your country doesn’t have a lot going for it: When everything is about Manny Pacquiao.”
“Get a fu**in life as a country”
“All you fu**in got is just an illiterate guy who happens to smash other guys in the head better than other people”
“Really, you want some guy with brain damage running your country? Why don’t you get your sh*t together?”
“All they have over there is Manny Pacquiao and sex stores.”
“What happens when Floyd Mayweather beats him? Does your country go into depression?”
However I try to dissect Carolla's words, I can never find the slightest humor in them. How can a comedian of his stature have a brain so minuscule and empty that he doesn't even use it before he opens his foul mouth? To blatantly say that the Philippines has nothing going but Manny and sex stores is in itself plain ignorance. To imply that Filipinos are whores and dumb and don't have a life is a serious attack on our country, our culture, on each and every Filipino, whether or not we're boxing fanatics.
These racial comments by a supposedly comedian is not funny at all. And how sad that he has an influential platform to abuse with his irresponsible tirades. Something has to be done to modern-day racists like Carolla. Here's the video if you want to piss yourself off:
