Former Quezon Rep. Erin Tañada has rebuked at Presidential Spokesman Salvador Panelo for his misogynist comments about human rights lawyer Amal Clooney following her decision to join the legal team of Rappler boss Maria Ressa.
Tañada, former Otso Diretso senatorial candidate, said Panelo was similar to his boss who is prejudiced against women amid reports he was drooling over Clooney.
“Panelo is a Misogynist just like his boss! They don’t see women as equals,” he tweeted.
Panelo earlier said he was “excited to debate” with Clooney, describing her as beautiful and sexy. He also wanted to “educate” her after she was misinformed about the case of Ressa.
