Baldwin apologizes for mail-order bride war

alec baldwin | mail order prank jokeUsually talk shows are used as bridge for celebrities to make public apologies and not apologize after they go on talk shows. On Alec Baldwin, it wasn't the case. He had just undertaken a very unusual convention.

What was intentionally meant for just one of Alec Baldwin's practical jokes and funny pranks turned into a catastrophic event during a live interview at "David Letterman's Show".

The 30 Rock star had issued a mea culpa to the people of the Philippines and just like any other viewer who took offense to an offhand he delivered during his appearance on the Late Show With David Letterman last Tuesday.

"I'd like to offer an apology and a clarification to remarks I made recently," he writes on the Huffington Post.

"While on the David Letterman program, I joked that I might need a 'mail-order bride' to achieve the goal of having more children in my life. I believe that most people understood that this was a joke and took it as such. (A dated reference, no doubt, and another sign of my advancing age.)

"However, I do apologize to anyone who took offense."

When asked by the host if he ever thought about expanding his brood, he now regrettably quipped, "I'm thinking about getting a Filipino mail-order bride at this point…or a Russian one."

The comment resulted in a backlash from foreign ministry officials, protests and Baldwin's blacklisting from the Philippines as a result of his new found status as an "undesirable alien."
To stop the budding international incident from getting even more worst and out of hand, Baldwin yesterday issued a written apology for the remark.
Despite his apology and acknowledgment that "such anger and frustration about the issue of sex trafficking is understandable," Immigration Commissioner Marcelino Libanan today released a statement banning the actor from his shores.
"By being in the bureau's blacklist, Baldwin is forbidden from entering the country as he is deemed an undesirable alien," Libanan said.
