(SPOT.ph) When someone—especially a non-Pinoy—disses or criticizes the Philippines or Filipinos in general, there’s no doubt that Pinoys will come to the rescue. They’ll start petitions. They’ll form groups that would hunt down the offender. At the very least, they’ll make sure that cyberspace is flooded with their expressions of displeasure.
Here, we list 10 non-Pinoys whose comments ruffled the feathers of Filipinos. They range from the negligible "spoiled brat" diatribes to downright racist statements. It’s worth noting that while there are those who thought nothing of the so-called anti-Pinoy comments and, in fact, even had a good laugh over the bitter truths about the Philippines, there were also those who were out for blood and demanded a public apology.
