In what reads like a bad Hollywood movie script, Marion Barry has changed his mind about Filipino nurses. Just a few weeks after complaining about how many Filipino nurses work in Washington D.C., Barry’s life was saved by Filipino medical professionals.

That’s right. The same people he wanted to push out of D.C. hospitals ended up treating his potentially life-threatening blood clot.

Barry felt so indebted to the Filipino hospital staff that saved his life that he took to Twitter to renounce his earlier bigoted remarks.

He still hasn’t apologized to “dirty” Asian restaurant owners yet. Not holding our breath…
