Hollywood comedian Rob Schneider is of dual heritage — his father is a real-estate broker of Jewish stock and his mother Pilar is half-Filipina. That makes him quarter-Filipino!
His mom had a cameo role in Deuce Bigalow at the restaurant where he goes on a date with Kate. She also played a judge in a cheerleading contest in The Hot Chick and a nosy neighbor in The Animal.
The Media Action Network for Asian Americans (MANAA) has criticized Schneider because in the dialogue he co-wrote for one of his movies, he supposedly “perpetuated the tired stereotype that Asian men have small penises.”
Rob Schneider was born in San Francisco on Halloween (October 31), 1963.
