Vice President Leni Robredo responds to the tirade of Foreign Affairs chief  Teddy Locsin Jr. saying she does not engage in rude exchanges.

"Nabasa ko iyong tweet late last night kasi ang daming tumatawag. Sa akin naman, ever since hindi ako pumatol kapag usapang bastusan. Sa akin, hindi naman ako nababawasan noon. Alam ng tao kung ano ang tama at ano iyong mali, kaya hindi ko na iyon papatulan," she says.

"Pero pagdating sa bastusan, hindi ako sasagot, kasi hindi naman — Hindi ako ganoon, at palagay ko karamihan sa mga Pilipino hindi rin ganoon. Kaya dapat hindi binibigyan ng pagkakataon na, parang, makabuwelo iyong ganoong pag-uugali."

Asked if she accepts Locsin's apology, she says it's water under the bridge.

"Sa akin naman... sa akin, wala iyon. Ever since naman, nasa receiving end ako ng napakaraming unfair na accusations, nasa receiving end ako ng napakaraming pambabastos. Kapag usapin na ganoon, ayaw kong patulan."

Sen. Kiko Pangilinan denounces Foreign Affairs Secretary Teddy Locsin Jr. for calling Vice President Leni Robredo "boba."

Pangilinan says such rude behavior has no place in a civilized society, especially coming from a top diplomat.

Locsin has apologized to the vice president after the "disrespectful" slur which he uttered in connection with the issue on the cancellation of diplomatic passports amid the barring of former Foreign Affairs chief Albert del Rosario to enter Hong Kong.
