Teri Hatcher insults Filipinos
In the Premiere of Desperate Housewives Teri Hatcher made a remark about Filipinos – doctors/nurses. She was talking to her doctor and then she said:
“Okay, before we go any further, can I check those diplomas? Coz I would just like to make sure they are not from some med school in the Philippines.”
Here are the dialogs from On my way home:
MD: Well, everything seems normal. But, you say you’ve been having irregular periods?
Susan: Yeah, you know, one month off, two months on. That happens, right?
MD: Have you ever experienced night sweats? …. (few other lines here)
MD: How about hot flashes?
Susan: OK, whoa. I’m gonna stop you right there. I’m way too young for that, please refer to your chart.
MD: Susan, I know for a lot of women the word menopause has negative connotations. They hear aging, brittle bones, loss of sexual desire…
Susan: Before you go any further, can I check those diplomas? I would just like to make sure that they’re not from some med school in the Philippines…
To think that there are a lot of Pinoys abroad as doctors and nurses.
Maybe this was brought about by the Nursing scandal. Hmm.. what can our new nurses say about this.
