Below is a Technorati Where’s the Fire? (WTF) on Malu Fernandez. Technorati defines WTFs as “short blurbs that explain the buzz around people, things, or eventsâ€”why the hot topics are so hotâ€”and you can vote the best ones to the top.”
Society columnist Malu Fernandez of the Philippines, in her now-controversial People Asia article â€œFrom Boracay to Greece,â€ insulted overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) that she encountered in a plane trip to Greece.
Fernandez wrote that she â€œwanted to slash [her] wrist at the thought of being trapped in a plane with all of them,â€ referring to the OFWs at a duty-free shop in Dubai, UAE. She also wrote that the OFWs were noisy and that her “Jo Malone [perfume] evaporated into thin air” while they smelled of cheap perfume brands.
