Viral Video: Duterte Under Fire for Cursing Pope Francis

Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte came under fire for cursing Pope Francis after he allegedly caught in a traffic jam during the papal visit in the country last January.


On Monday, during his speech at the Century Park hotel where he was formally declared PDP-Laban standard-bearer, Duterte revealed he was angered over the bad traffic situation in Metro Manila when he cursed at the Pope.

“From the hotel to the airport, alam mo bang inabot kami ng limang oras. Sabi ko bakit? Sabi pinasarado daw,” he said. “Gusto kong tawagan, ‘Pope put****** ka umuwi ka na. ‘Wag ka nang bumisita dito,‘” Duterte added.

The audience especially his supporters laughed but this was not received well by other people. Some netizens took to Twitter to express their anger.
