Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte on Wednesday minced no words against Ambassadors Philip Goldberg of the United States and Amanda Gorely of Australia for their statements criticizing his comments on the rape and murder of an Australian missionary in 1989.
“You’re not Filipinos. Shut up. Do not interfere because it’s election time,” Duterte told about 5,000 supporters who had waited for hours at the Pastrana Park in the capital town of Kalibo.
The two ambassadors to the Philippines earlier issued statements condemning Duterte’s rape joke.
