On October 11, David Letterman interviewed Lucy Liu on his show, ‘The Late Night Show with David Letterman” to promote her upcoming series ‘Elementary’. The interview also covered her exercise regimen, on how she keeps herself in shape. When asked by Letterman if she runs 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.”

With that quip, she drew mixed reactions over social media. However, the actress apologizes that it was not meant to be racist in any way, according to her recent interview with ABS-CBN News.

Is her comment in any way derogatory? What do you think?
