ABS-CBNNews.com reports that in an interview with the Philippine Daily Inquirer’s Hollywood correspondent Ruben Nepales, Lucy Liu clarified that she never intended to insult Filipinos. She told Nepales: "I am so sorry that my comment was taken out of context, as I would never insult another group or ethnicity."

 

The report noted that the comment that got so much flakwas uttered by Liu during her October 11 appearance on The Late Show With David Letterman to promote the series Elementary. Letterman had asked Liu, who is of Chinese descent, if she liked running indoors or outdoors. Liu had innocently quipped, "I run in a machine. It’s easier for me. Also if I get really dark, I’ll start to look a little Filipino, it wouldn’t match. If I start getting darker, you know what I mean? I can get really dark if I'm in the sun too much."
