Ooops! Duterte curses Spanish race but quickly says sorry to BFF Sabin Aboitiz
It’s no secret that President Rodrigo Duterte hates the Spaniards for murdering natives and taking over their lands when they colonized the Philippines centuries go.
But when Duterte went on another rant against the Spaniards during a speech in Iloilo Thursday, he had to issue a quick apology because a bilyonaryo with Spanish roots was in the audience.
“Ngayon, ang order of Lapu-Lapu, ako ang nag-conceive kasi nung nagkampanya ako, pumunta ako doon sa Cebu, may nakita akong istatwa ng putsng… Mas tigas pa si Magellan kay Lapu-Lapu. Itong… Putang ‘tong mga Español. Hindi ikaw ha, Aboitiz,” said Duterte.
“Kataas ng Magellan statue, tapos ang kay Lapu-Lapu maliit. Anong kahabagan itong yawa na ito? Sabi ko, ito ‘yung nagpunta dito nag-agaw ng lupa natin for 400 years, subjecting us like slaves,” Duterte added.
Duterte was referring to long-time friend Sabin Aboitiz, President and CEO of Aboitiz One, who probably was used to Duterte’s cursing and hating on his Spanish ancestors.
