This is not funny

Winter is here and so is my annual winter flu. Upon seeing this video clip of the BBC show "Harry and Paul", I just have to break my hibernation and protest. Sorry, this is not funny at all!

This is racist and humiliating. For me they portrayed the Filipina domestic helper worse than a pet dog. I protest!

I saw this on BBC just recently, and was not pleased with the portrayal of a Filipino maid working abroad. It was not funny -- not at all.

I met some Filipino domestic workers in HK and in Israel, and they were pretty decent people.

i felt bad about this myself. obviously, the british ambassador's apology sounded half-hearted. we must continue our efforts to change the image of the filipina abroad.
