‘You shet!’ ‘Putangina:’ Locsin curses at journo over report on Duterte absence in ASEAN event


Foul-mouthed Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. is on a cursing streak following media reports on President Duterte skipping some events in a regional summit in Thailand.

Locsin blasted Inquirer reporter Jhesset Enano on Twitter while tying to defend Duterte’s absence at the closing ceremony of 35th ASEAN summit and related summits. He represented Duterte at the ceremony so he could fly back home early.

“One event you shet & just ceremony. If he didn’t catch the plane’s takeoff at 7 p.m. he’d be stuck. He left at 6 p.m. after ASEAN-Japan Summit, bilats with Japan, 3 hours of East Asia Summit — since he spoke first, he stayed til last spoke as a courtesy. Others stepped out,” he tweeted.

Locsin unleashed another invective to explain it was not only Duterte who missed the closing session, which he said was purely ceremonial.

“Uh, did you get the putangina I sent you? That’s the last event, purely ceremonial and short. Jokowi had left, Mahathir too,” he tweeted.

Duterte, who was in Thailand for the regional summit from November 1 to 4, reportedly skipped the two last activities of the ASEAN. No official explanation has been given by the Palace about Duterte’s sudden departure.

Locsin drew the ire of many netizens for his rude behavior. Some have cursed back at the former lawmaker while others reminded him to behave especially since taxpayers pay for his salary.
