Arnold Clavio Racist Remarks Against Philippine Azkals (Video)


GMA-7 veteran broadcast journalist Arnold Clavio is now getting a lot of attention online. Unfortunately most of them negative flak for his racist remark against the Philippine Azkals in relation to the ongoing harassment complaint filed by Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Match Commissioner Cristy Ramos on Azkals' players Lexton Moy and Angel Guirado.

The said remarks happened on GMA-7 daily morning show Unang Hirit where Clavio particularly said, "Yayabang nyo akala nyo. Porke dinadagsa kayo ng mga fans...gu-gwapo nyo eh. Parang God's gifts to women.

"Ngayon nag-sorry para daw dun sa isa nalang kasamahan. Sa'n ka nakakitang Azkals na may suso. Anong cup-b sa isang kasama? Sana nag sorry, sorry na lang talaga ‘di ba..

"'Di ko kayo ka-kultura.. kasi wala dito’t wala dito (pointing to the chest and head), ‘di naman kayo Pilipino e, nagpapanggap lang kayong kayumanggi, hindi kayo dito lumaki. Mahirap ‘yun. Insensitive."

What do you think of Clavio's statement? Did he go overboard? Unbecoming of a broadcast journalist? Insensitive - knowing that some members of the Azkals team are also Filipinos? Or he is just airing his own opinion and not wanting to demean anyone?
