Regis

Holy Overreaction, Batman!

10/31/2008 10:07 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Regis Philbin gave his side of that whole "Dominican thing" to our cameraman -- and Batman -- this morning in NY.

Regis: Click to watch
Oh, and that planned protest? Hasn't happened yet.

UPDATE: Our guy on scene says a few people have assembled -- about 15 -- in a peaceful protest. They're demanding an on-air apology from R&K and threatening a mass protest if they don't get it.

Don't back down Regis! People in this country need to lighten the h@!! up! The level of political correctness is absurd. Oh, unless it is sexism, or anything to do with slamming Republicans.

What the hell?! Would we even be discussing this if the stupid joke had included the words Irish, German or Polish? NO. Perhaps some immigrant groups are simply too sensitive and paranoid to be here. Such BS! And not even funny.

Oh for gripes sake! I saw this show...she was just quoting something her 7 year old daughter said. It was funny. It wasn't meant to be derogatory in any way. The little girl just mixed up the words Democrats and Dominicans. I hate when certain groups overreact to things like this.

People need to get a life. I am Dominican and I don't see what the big deal is. He did not mean any harm and if he did so what? Stop being so sensitive, there are more important issues whithin our community than trying to find "hidden meaning" to a simple joke.

Hey, TMZ! Can you get rid of all of these stupid posts that have nothing to do with the topic at hand?


Anywhoo......Kelly made a joke. Big deal. Her child said one thing when she meant another thing. Get over it, people! Regis is a good guy!

Life is so bad in the Dominican Republic that last week a drug dealer who was deported came back to New York and when he was about to be arrested he shot 2 police officers.Imagine that,life in a prison is better than life in the Domincan Republic.He was willing to do anything not to go back to that hell hole.
