Alec Baldwin's Joke Causes International Uproar

Alec Baldwin has this amazing ability to stick his foot so far in his mouth it can blow your mind.

Granted, the 30 Rock star was just joking around with David Letterman when he said he was "thinking about getting a Filipino mail-order bride at this point...or a Russian one," but the people in the Philippines are missing the humor.

Philippine Sen. Ramon Ravilla called Alec's quip "arrogant, insensitive and uncalled for" and says the actor insulted millions of his fellow citizens. And that they are not going to be so forgiving should Alec make a visit.

"Let him try to come to the Philippines and he'll see mayhem," he said.

Is Alec just misunderstood, or do you think the reaction is legit?
