lucy liu wants to avoid looking "a little filipino"

Lucy Liu has drawn some controversy for comments she made while appearing on the Late Show with David Letterman, saying she wanted to avoid looking "a little Filipino": Lucy Liu doesn't want to 'look a little Filipino'.

Oh, no you didn't, Lucy. She was talking about her preference for running on a treadmill, as opposed to outdoors, where exposure to the sun might make her skin darker -- which she apparently equates to lookin' Filipino:
In the talk show, Liu was discussing her regular exercise regimen with the host.

Asked by Letterman if she likes running outdoors or indoors, the Hollywood actress of Chinese descent said: "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."
I'm assuming that was her attempt at a incredibly stupid and unnecessary joke. Liu has since apologized for the remark, saying she never intended to insult Filipinos: Lucy Liu sorry for 'look a little Filipino' quip.
