Adam Carolla has opened his big fat mouth again. Last week on his audio podcast, he made the brilliant move of insulting Manny Pacquiao, his fans, and basically, the entire nation of the Philippines: Popular American comedian and television host discriminates against Manny Pacquiao and Filipinos.
You can listen to the clip here. I guess Carolla wanted to know what it felt like to be public enemy number one. You know, just another day of ignorance in Carolla’s little world. Here’s an excerpt from the transcript:
He says he doesn’t give blood the month of a fight, or a week before the fight, because somehow it’s going to weaken him and what have you. I gotta tell you, if that was a white fighter, and probably even a black fighter — even if the black fighter was from Atlanta or somewhere like that — someone would go, ‘What the fuck are you talking about? Give your drop of blood. It’s not going to make a difference.’ But because he’s from the Philippines and because he’s, you know, praying to chicken bones and stuff like that, everyone’s kind of like, “Uh, well you gotta respect him for his belief system.’ No, you don’t — he’s a fucking idiot…
Here’s how you know your country doesn’t have a lot going for it: when everything is about Manny Pacquiao… Get a fucking life, as a country. All you’ve fucking got is this illiterate guy who won’t give up blood, who happens to smash other guys in the head better than other people. That’s all you have, Philippines?
You want some guy with brain damage running your country? Why don’t you get your shit together? They’ve got this and sex tours. That’s all they have over there. Get your shit together, Philippines.
There’s more, but why bother? It’s Adam Carolla. He’s in the business of perpetuating ignorant-ass bullshit in the name of comedy. You might recall the debacle following the 2006 Asian Excellence Awards, where Carolla and his producers mocked the event with some serious ‘ching chong’ on his radio show. That got a lot of people angry. I expect this will too.
