The Philippine government through Deputy Presidential Spokesman Gary Olivar has issued a short statement on the Adam Carolla-Manny Pacquiao issue:
“Hindi na nga kailangan pang hingan ng apology ng Pilipinas si Carolla because he is a sick minority. His statements do not carry any weight to any place in any country. He is a minority that deserves to be ignored.”
In his podcast, comedian Adam Carolla attacked Pacquiao for refusing to undergo the Olympic-style blood testing, which was demanded by Mayweather. He also bashed the Filipinos and the Philippines.
