Despite admiring her feistiness, newly appointed Philippine Ambassador to the United Nations (UN) Teodoro “Teddyboy” Locsin Jr. couldn’t help but lash out at Senator Leila de Lima on Twitter after she highlighted the importance of legal procedure at a Senate hearing.
In an interview on CNN Philippines’ “The Source” Thursday (Oct. 6), Locsin said he was unable to stop himself from cursing at De Lima online because he believes she lacks credibility to talk about legal procedure.
“I have stood by De Lima. I like her feistiness, true, but she’s the last person to do that. The Supreme Court issued a TRO (temporary restraining order) allowing GMA (former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo) to go [abroad] but she spat on it,” he said.
Locsin’s Twitter outburst stemmed from inquirer.net’s live tweet of De Lima saying warrantless arrest can be done if the suspect is caught in the act.
In response, Locsin tweeted: “Ah, shut the fuck up, you fat bitch. GMA had a TRO from the Supreme Court and you spat on it.” [source]
