What do you think about the Mail Order Brides business?


Alec Baldwin apologizes for 'Filipina mail-order bride' comment

Alec Baldwin has apologized for a controversial reference to "getting a Filipina mail-order bride" that he made during a recent appearance on Late Show with David Letterman. "I believe that most people understood that this was a joke and took it as such," the actor blogged for the Huffington Post. "(A dated reference, no doubt, and another sign of my advancing age.) However, I do apologize to anyone who took offense.... Such anger and frustration about the issue of sex trafficking is understandable."

  • I don't feel that it's really any different from slavery. This man down the road from my parent's home had a mail order bride, and on any given day you'd see her chopping wood or carrying 5 gallon buckets of water down the road from the creek. She looked completely miserable.

    Makes me sad.

  • what ever floats his boat i guess. a lot of women in other countries have to be mail order brides because there isn't anyone to take care of there financial needs. its sad but the truth.
