Netflix’s Hasan Minhaj trolls Andanar for crying foul over anti-Duterte quip on show
American comedian Hasan Minhaj is taking Communications Secretary Martin Andanar’s criticism of his comment about President Rodrigo Duterte with a grain of salt.
Minhaj took to Twitter Wednesday (May 15) to react to Andanar’s statement that his show on Netflix, “Patriot Act,” parrots “falsehoods” about Duterte.
“Renaming the show ‘Erroneous Narratives Peddled by Haters and Trolls with Hasan Minhaj,” he said.
Andanar earlier slammed Minhaj for calling Duterte an “autocrat” who “every so often goes on a killing spree” in the episode “Brazil, Corruption, and the Rainforest.”
“We express outrage that such erroneous narratives, obviously peddled by anti-Duterte haters and trolls, would find their way to the gullible TV host and his comedy show and unwittingly parrot these falsehoods to an audience unaware of the real score in the Philippines,”a portion of Andanar’s statement read.
