#racism – Lucy Liu comment sparks outcry from Filipino Netizens

Quote From David Letterman Interview With Lucy Liu:

Asked by Letterman if she likes running outdoors or indoors, the Hollywood actress of Chinese descent said: “I run in a machine. It’s easier for me. Also if I get really dark, I’ll start to look a little Filipino, it wouldn’t match. If I start getting darker, you know what I mean? I can get really dark if I’m in the sun too much.”

That reply spark an outcry from the Filipino netizen community. There was a fair mix of reaction, some was furious while others says there was nothing wrong with that comment. The 43 year old actress later made an apology saying that her comments was taken out of context.

She also says: “I am so sorry that my comment was taken out of context, as I would never insult another group or ethnicity. Just to clarify, I was explaining why I do not run or exercise outdoors, as my skin tans very easily. Because I am presently playing a character with New York during the autumn/winter season as backdrop, it is important that I keep my look consistent with this type of environment.”

I really wonder, if that was an insult, its definitely a view that she sees being tanned / brown as less pretty, less sexy and being chinese fair skinned is being prettier – in the context for that matters. Below is her interview session with David Letterman on Oct 11 2012.

Well she really burst it out like that as if looking like a Filipino is the worst thing that could happen to someone. Its like saying to another person, “you are fat and you are ugly – i dont wanna look like you.” – Honestly, thats an insult.


Oh, on further digging and scraping the internet for “Lucy Liu” search, i stumble across this saucy sex scene from a movie that cast Lucy Liu. That triggered me to even search more of her exclusive content which now let me wonder, was she a porn star before she was a movie star? Lets get to know her a little better shall we?
