Low blow! Peña warns not to make fun of Duterte’s accent

Sharing is caring!

Abogado Gideon V. Peña finds the jokes and criticisms against the regional accent of President Rodrigo Duterte as an insult to Filipinos in the provinces.

He stressed that political beliefs shouldn’t clout a person’s mind regarding these things.

“Regardless of our political beliefs, let us refrain from making fun of Rodrigo Duterte’s accent. It is, after all, an accent shared by many of our countrymen. Let us focus on issues that matter,” he posted on Twitter.

The issue came to light when activist Raissa Robles made fun of the way the President pronounced an English word during his recent public appearance.
