The recent sneer about a Filipina maid in a BBC show has caused furor among Pinoy communities in the UK, and here in the Philippines.

“Comedian Harry Enfield’s BBC show has been labelled “disgraceful and distasteful” by members of the Philippine community in the UK. A petition has been launched condemning the Harry And Paul show for a sketch in which one man urged another to “mount” a Filipina maid.” The Philippine Embassy in London has already written to the BBC about the offensive scene. Refer to the video above for the controversia scene.

After the Desperate Housewives incident, here comes another TV show that makes a comment on the Pinay maid. Do we really have to react seriously or do we need to open up our mind that this is just a show?
