Katherine Ryan apologizes for ‘joke' about Filipino children

Canadian comedienne Katherine Ryan apologizes over her joke about Filipino children that's been deemed by many as "racist," "tasteless" and "insulting."

Ryan is on hot water over a joke saying: "We don't test any of our products on animals. We use Filipino Children” in a segment where celebrities were tasked to drop "unlikely lines from a cosmetics commercial."

The comedienne immediately aired her explanation on Twitter about the incident.

“It was UNLIKELY lines from a cosmetics commercial. *UN-LIKELY*. You'd be very unlikely to hear that. Because it would never happen,” she posted.

“If you'd watched the whole show instead of reacting to a still shot out of context you might feel that I was criticizing the EXPLOITATION of children. The joke is never, ever ON children. Watch the show. And I'm not an actress.”

 “And I'm sorry if anyone understood anything different. I really am. I could have said Irish/Canadian but we're not as cute.”
