Locsin reveals Bobby Ongpin’s true nature: He’s an asshole!
Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro “Teddyboy” Locsin Jr. doesn’t mince words about what he thinks of people– even if they’re his friends.
Locsin called businessman Roberto “Bobby” Ongpin an “asshole” in a tweet posted Friday (January 4).
He made the comment in response to a link to a Financial Times article where the Russian bilyonaryo Alisher Usmanov denied being an oligarch.
Locsin said Usmanov reminds him of Ongpin, who was called by President Rodrigo Duterte as an oligarch.
“Reminds me of Bobby Ongpin whom DU called an oligarch. I rushed to his defense, ‘Of course not, Bobby’s not an oligarch; he’s an asshole. I did work for him in ACCRALAW.’ When Bobby saw me, he threw his arms around me, ‘The only one who understands me.’ So misunderstood,” he tweeted.
Ongpin resigned as chairman of PhilWeb Corporation in August 2016 after Duterte threatened to “destroy” him and other oligarchs.
PhilWeb was a service provider of the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) in its e-games network.
