Gabby Concepcion became the hapless, albeit inadvertent, target of President Rodrigo Duterte’s latest public rant. The country’s top executive committed another faux pas as he was delivering a profanity laced tirade against the ABS-CBN network.
During a speaking engagement with the Justice Department on Wednesday, President Duterte cursed at the veteran actor and called him “mukhang pera.” The President was actually referring to ABS-CBN chairman Eugenio Lopez III, also known as Gabby Lopez. He corrected himself minutes later.
The President has been at odds with the major Philippine network after ABS-CBN allegedly took his payment during the 2016 election campaign but never aired the then-Davao City candidate’s commercial.
Concepcion, for his part, laughed off the whole incident with a humorous post.
Meanwhile, netizens were amused and had some funny reactions to the President’s latest flub:
