Philippine presidential aspirant Rodrigo ‘Digong’ Duterte said during his sortie in Pastrana Park in Kalibo capital town that the Australian and United States ambassadors should keep their mouth shut and stay out of Philippine politics.
“You’re not Filipinos. Shut up. Do not interfere because it’s election time.” Mayor Duterte said in front of his about 5,000 supporters. “I was exercising my constitutional rights” he also said.
This in response to the statements of the two ambassadors regarding The Davao City mayor’s Rape joke.
Duterte’s Bad joke about Rape
Australian ambassador Amanda Gorely posted in Twitter “Rape and murder should never be joked about or trivialised. Violence against women and girls is unacceptable anytime, anywhere.”
Autralian Ambassador Tweets about the Rape joke
Unites States ambassador Philip Goldberg said in an interview aired by CNN Philippines “I can only agree with the colleague from the Australian Embassy,” Goldberg said in an interview aired by CNN Philippines.
“Any statements by anyone, anywhere that either degrade women or trivialize issues so serious as rape or murder, are not ones that we condone,” he added.
Presidential aspirant and Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte apologized to the Filipinos for his joke of the rape and murder of an Australian missionary.
“I apologize to the Filipino people for my recent remarks in a rally. There was no intention of disrespecting our women and those who have been victims of this horrible crime. Sometimes my mouth can get the better of me,” Duterte said in a statement sent to the media.
But the tough talking Mayor insisted that he won’t apologize for “the things I’ve done to protect our people, especially the weak and defenseless, from crime.”
