Racial Discrimination Rules the day with Pinoy Former Beauty Queen Dindi Gallardo , Lucy Liu!
By Vince Concepcion
What the crap is going on here? Have you heard of what happened to New York based former beauty queen Dindi Gallardo in her former workplace? Here’s the rub. Dindi Gallardo (now Joanna Gallardo-Mills)worked as an executive coordinator for Frank Miller, the writer of the comics Sin City and The Dark Knight Returns. She reported that she was put into a very hostile working environment by Frank Miller and by his girlfriend Kimberly Cox. Kimberly was reported to throw the phone at Dindi, destroyed her printer with a hammer, and smeared feces in her work station. In other words she was put to hell by the Batman writer’s girlfriend. She is seeking damages for discrimination and anguish.
Now, following its discrimination tracks is Lucy Liu’s reported racial slurs(?) with Filipinos. In a TV interview at The Late Night Show with David Letterman,“ promoting the film “Elementary”, she said she exercises indoors because she gets really dark and she would look “a little Filipino” and it doesn’t match. She got a lot of negative feedback online with Filipinos saying she just slipped a discriminatory remark against Filipinos. I heard she apologized for this statement but a lot of Pinoys got very disturbed.
Anyways, while all of these are going here in the US, our chismoso reporters told me that they spotted in LA Martin Nievera at Disneyland in Anaheim and AiAi de las Alas in Americana in Glendale.They are here to support ABS-CBN Foundation International ‘s Bantay Bata and Sagip Kapamilya in a show –The King and AiAi. More power for you great guys for helping a good cause.
Back home in the Philippine Islands, good news for Pinoy movies. Box Office hits are movies “This Guy’s in Love with U Mare” starring Vice Ganda, Toni Gonzaga and Luis Manzano. What I heard is it’s raking buco bucks – hundred million already in its 5th day? Wow. And with GMA Films, the Dingdong Dantes and Lovi starrer movie thriller “Tiktik: The Aswang Chronicles” raked in 10 million in its first day! Another wow!
