A group of Filipino-Americans are demanding an apology from American television network ABC and the series Desperate Housewives for including a derogatory reference to Philippine medical schools in the script of their season premiere show Sept. 30.

In the said show, Susan (played by Teri Hatcher) who is one of the main characters, was consulting a gynecologist who said she might be hitting menopause. She replied “Can I just check those diplomas because I just want to make sure that they are not from some med school in the Philippines.”
