Shut Up...

Who is this Jay Leno to speak about Filipinos like that?! So what if he is the revered host of this top rating late night talk show aired on local cable tv every Thursday!

The recent action of the Philippine Government over the case of OFW Angelo de la Cruz in Iraq has gained not a mouthful of biting remarks from the international community. That's plainly acceptable. But this loud-mouthed alien ridiculed the Filipinos as a country by delivering this statement: "A new world record has been set in the 100-meter dash. It was set by Filipino troops fleeing Iraq." He even jeered us by poking fun at the size of our 51-man contingent in Iraq. He even has the nerve to criticize our legislators (as much as I loathe some of them, I still believe in the "love your own" pun) and concerned groups here.

To taunt us with your uncalled for comments is intensely maddening. Anyone can hit us on that but thinking about what you are, you're definitely not in the slightest position to judge us like that. Your comments definitely did not criticize our action but you whacked us more as Filipinos, as a nation. Not fair enough.
