A few hours after calling Vice President Leni Robredo an idiot, Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. has realized his mistake and apologized for his behavior.

“Yes. That’s no way for a gentleman to speak to a lady. Apologies,” Locsin tweeted when a netizen told him to go “easy” following the “boba” remark against Roberto.

“She is our Vice President. I have apologized,” he said.

After taking a swipe at the beep, Locsin has rabidly defended Robredo as the constitutional successor of President Duterte. He admitted that it was not right to call her stupid.

“She is the only successor to the President. Elections alone determine who takes what post; not public sentiment. Besides she really won the election. 200,000 is huge,” he said.

Locsin called Robredo “boba” after she questioned the Department of Foreign Affairs’ order recalling all courtesy diplomatic passports following the case of former Foreign Affairs Secretary Albert del Rosario. He asked kind people to give Robredo a brain over her remark.
