President Rodrigo Duterte mocked his celebrity critics during his speech at the campaign rally of PDP-Laban in Bacolod City.
While he’s speaking about the members of Otso Diretso senatorial candidates, Duterte suddenly remembered Agot Isidro who’s now the girlfriend of one of the opposition bets, Florin Hilbay and also artist Jim Paredes.
“Sige yawyaw naman sila sa EJK.. sila ni Paredes, sige atake sa akin, kurap daw ako, mamamatay tao daw ako.. eh talaga,” he said.
The President again talked to the leaked private video of Paredes who criticized him many times on social media, questioning his morality.
“Tapos etong Jim Paredes..immoral daw ako ayun pinakita niya yung ut*n niya. t*ng i*a ang liit pa ganun.. sa totoo lang kaya ko nasabi.. ‘hala kaliit'” Duterte said.
Duterte pointed out that what happened to Paredes showed the quality of his critics, he said that even he got a foul mouth, he cannot do what his critic did in front of the camera.
“Yan ang mga taong nagbabatikos sa akin kita mo yung kalidad nila, ako bastos magsalita pero hindi ako nagpakita ng..” Duterte said.
“Nagpapahawak ako basta maganda.. walang problema yan, pero hawak lang..” he added.
“Kayabang yabang, malambot na.. maiksi pa gyud..tapos the character of the guy criticizing me to be corrupt and immoral,”
Paredes stormed the internet last week after his private video circulated on the internet.
The controversy prompted the artist and his family to take a rest from using social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter to avoid being criticized by the netizens.
