After Pres. Rodrigo Duterte's request to extend his self-imposed deadline of 3-6 months eradicating crime, an old statement of Mar Roxas is making its rounds in social media again.
Roxas called out Duterte during the presidential campaign for giving people false hope about how easy he could crack down on criminality in the country. Duterte then called Roxas 'bayot' (gay) for critiquing his campaign.
“Si Mar, bayot. ‘Di niya kaya…Kaya ko kasi lalaki ako. Kundi ka lalaki, papano ‘yan,” said Duterte.
In an interview in Guimaras last April 7, 2016, Roxas answered the insults saying:
“Alam mo ito lang masasabi ko. Digong hindi ka ba nahihiya sa kababayan natin? Binigyan kita ng facts, datos, katotohanan. Ang iyong masasagot lang ay paninira, name-calling,” Roxas said.
“Hangga’t diyan lang ba ang kakayahan mo? Ang makapag-argue ang pag-discuss ng mahahalagang isyu na siyang bumabalot sa buhay ng ating kababayan,” he added.
