filipinos dont look chinese!! Filipinos are black skinned they are called the AETAS!!

The chinese have slanted eyes filipinos have round eyes. Most filipinos dont want to be asians cause most asian countries are buhddist and most filipinos dont like it!!

Majority of filipinos are very sensitive towards the chinese including the japanese koreans ect..........

Hypocritical Filipino's. Millions of skin whitening products and every other commercial is about beautiful white skin.

Should have a Filipino product for thin skin.

She did it purposely because she was promoting a new Movie" Elementary". She doesn't look like a Filipino. She is a Chinese looking, what is wrong with her.

Many Filipinos are always envious ! That is a very common trait of us Filipinos. Especially the woman among us. Ohhhhh, they just love to gossip and look down on any woman looking prettier than them, lol

Even if she get a little darker, she won't look like a Filipino because of her slanted eyes :P
But she does have a look-alike here in the Philippines... Use google and search "POKWANG"

There was really no need for her to apologize, except to clarify her statement. She's a Chinese and she probably wanted to look like a typical Chinese for her career characters.
