Adam Carolla went off during one of his recent podcasts when the topic of boxer Manny Pacquiao came up.
Carolla started commenting on Pacquiao’s refusal to give blood before a fight to prove he’s not juicing.
Though according to many, the comments slowly started to turn racist as he joked that Pacquiao “prays to chicken bones” and that the Philippines is “nothing but Pacquiao and sex tours.”
But now, the Filipino American community is demanding an apology from Carolla and CBS radio.
A petition has been started asking for Filipinos to demand a public apology. According to the petition:
It seems that time and time again, “celebrities” and “comedians” feel that it is acceptable to degrade Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in public forums. You would never have said such things about African Americans, as you recognize that your career would plummet, as exemplified by the falls of Michael Richards and Don Imus.
What you need to recognize is that racial hate and ignorance about any group is wrong and unjust. And what you also need to recognize is that your hate towards Asian Americans, the fastest growing racial minority group in the United States, can also lead to your career’s demise too.

Gym Class Heroes’ Travis Travie McCoy unveiled the high-flying cover art to his debut solo album Lazarus (due June 8), and although it reminds us more of Icarus than Lazarus, we’re still digging the conceptual art work. McCoy has a slew of helping hands on his album—producers and featured artists on the record include T-Pain, The Stereotypes, Danger Mouse, and his Fueled By Ramen buddy (and frequent collaborator) Patrick Stump. Put some dollar signs in your eyes and listen to Travie’s first single “Billionaire,” featuring soul singer Bruno Mars, below.

Says the doctor who most likely killed him. TMZ has the timeline Dr. Conrad Murray’s defense will present which essentially has Michael Jackson giving himself a lethal dose of Propofol while the doctor’s taking a leak. No, really:
- At around 10:50 AM, Dr. Murray gave Jackson 25 mg of Propofol from a 20 ml bottle — that’s only about 1/8 of the bottle.
- The dose Dr. Murray administered would keep someone asleep for only 5 to 10 minutes, But the Propofol, along with the Ativan and Versed that was already in MJ’s system, had a synergistic effect that put Jackson to sleep for a longer period of time.
- For the next hour, Dr. Murray stayed in the room and was on the phonefor much of the time. Dr. Murray didn’t leave the room to make the calls because MJ liked activity in the room, regularly sleeping with the lights on and cartoons blaring on the TV.
- At around noon, Dr. Murray left the room for approximately two minutes to go to the bathroom. While he was gone, the defense believes Jackson suddenly awakened and was frustrated he had spent nearly 9 hours trying in vain to sleep. The defense theory — Jackson took the 20 ml bottle of Propofol and self-injected the remaining contents through the IV, causing a massive overdose that stopped his heart.
- Dr. Murray walked back in the room and saw Jackson with his eyes open and pupils dilated. Dr. Murray dropped the phone (he was speaking with his girlfriend) and began administering CPR.
A likely story, but if you’re really going to sell this thing, there should probably be some child-touching. You’d just assume that’d be the crux of this defense.
PROSECUTION: Dr. Murray, where were you when Michael Jackson died?
DR. MURRAY: Helping children escape out the window.
PROSECUTION: …. He’s innocent, your honor.

Would you eat this??

It’s bacon and cheese sandwiched between two pieces of fried chicken. And now, many months later, I’ll finally be able to get my hands on one.
KFC announced the decision to go live with the Double Down yesterday, but we weren’t sure they weren’t playing a April Fools gag. But no, they truly are going nationwide with the delicacy on April 12.
The sandwich will be available in two forms. The Original Recipe sandwich will set you back about 540 calories, 32g of fat and 1380mg of sodium. The not-as-bad-for-you Grilled Double Down totals 460 calories, 23g of fat and 1430mg of sodium.

Apple today surprised the media by sending out a teaser for an iPhone 4.0 event at its Cupertino campus on Thursday. The event notice says little but offers a “peek into the feature of iPhone OS” with a large “4″ casting a shadow, clearly pointing to the next major revision.
Although Apple has said nothing about 4.0, most expect it to center on Expose-style multitasking that involves a double-tap of the home button. It may also bring a generalized file system that lets users save and open documents from outside of a particular app and should roll in many of the iPhone 3.2 developments seen with the iPad, such as a home screen with a custom background and icons that rotate regardless of context.

Nike launches an online viral campaign by Wieden+Kennedy Amsterdam (W+K) for the revolutionary ‘Mercurial Vapor Superfly II”.
As anticipation for the biggest football tournament of the year heats up, Nike releases the Mercurial Vapor Superfyl II, a football boot with Nike SENSE adaptive traction technology studs. When designing the Mercurial Superfly II, Nike created an adaptive stud that extend and retract by up to 3mm, based on ground conditions and pressure exerted by the player. Two of these studs on the forefoot of each boot combine with directionally positioned blades to allow for quick changes of direction, while secondary toe traction provides added power for those first critical steps. The result is a boot that enables greater speed in all directions – in all conditions
