Should the Philippines leader have called the US ambassador a gay son of a whore?

  • No responses have been submitted.
  • The Philippines leader went too far in his remarks about the U.S. ambassador

    The Philippines leader went too far in his remarks about the U.S. ambassador. He called him the gay son of a whore. This is not proper language for the leader of a country. It is undignified, and does not help relations. Any disagreements should be discussed in private, without resorting to name calling.

  • No, The Phillippines leader should have respected the US ambassador

    No, Rodrigo Duterte, the leader of The Philippines, should not have called the US ambassador a "gay son of a whore". Although it may be acceptable in The Philippines, the leader of that country needs to respect the culture of the United States. A better option for Duterte would have been to use a more culturally sensitive term, or avoid the term altogether.

  • He is crude

    There is something wrong with Rodrigo Duterte, the president of the Philippines. He has a few screws missing. He kind of reminds me of Donald Trump. He erroneously believes he can say anything he wants and there will be no consequences. This is a global society now and everything is broadcasted around the world, so the backlash will be swift. It was a horrible thing for him to say about the US Ambassador. I'm sure he's figuring that out now.

  • No, words like that are never appropriate.

    No, the Philippines leader should not have called the US ambassador a gay son of a whore. Not only are words like that never appropriate, but they are especially inappropriate coming from an official political leader. However, I don't believe anything should be done about this because, though it was inappropriate, the Philippines leader should have freedom of speech.
