PDP-Laban presidential candidate Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte won’t apologize for his controversial rape joke.
On Sunday, Duterte said he would rather lose his presidency than apologize for a remark about rape in which he said the Australian woman was so beautiful, it was too bad he didn’t get to her first.
His remarks earned criticisms from other presidential bets as well as from netizens. Meanwhile, his supporters said that the video was taken out of context and that some of the reactions were exaggerated.
In a video posted on Sunday, April 17, Duterte was recorded seated in front of his house in Davao City surrounded by news reporters.
