Philippine Government demand an apology from "Desperate Housewives" producers

The Philippine Government and Philippine Medical Association (PMA) has voiced its displeasure over the remarks considered as a racial slur against Philippine medical schools in the hit American television series “Desperate Housewives."

The line was delivered by actress Teri Hatcher's character, Susan Mayer, in the show's Season 4 premier episode.

In the scene where Mayer was being examined by a doctor, she asked for the man's credentials and said: "Can I check those diplomas 'coz I just want to make sure that they're not from some med school in the Philippines."

This kind of racial slur is a very irresponsible act and should NEVER be tolerated in any society, whether in a first world or a third world country.
