Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio called out popular forensic pathologist Raquel Fortun for her Twitter post over the mayor’s triplets pregnancy which was made public Friday.
Earlier on, Mayor Duterte released a statement explaining her absence on the Kadayawan activities of the city saying that she is 7 weeks pregnant with a triplets. The news readily went viral as thousands congratulated Duterte for her multifetal pregnancy.
In her Twitter post, Fortun wrote “Too early to rejoice over 7weeker lalo na triplets. Wait for delivery and spare oneself from heartache. PR for Lolo?”.
In her Facebook post, Sara lashed back at Fortun for her Twitter post.
“Ah yes PR pero bago ka mag tweet basahin mo muna yung PR ng hindi ka magmukhang dugyot na ampalaya. Please take note, that public officials need to explain their absence in important events. And when I do get the heartache, it will still be a media blitz and when we defy the odds it will be a PR fiesta and you will still be Miss Bittermelon. Problema sa imuha Miss kay di ka ganahan sa Lolo manunglo ka sa mga gisabak, 3 baya ni, buot pasabot ang gaba ani katulohon pud. Turn off your twitter, do your work, mind your own business and spare yourself the heartache,” the mayor posted Saturday.
Duterte’s post was followed up with another post seemingly apologizing for her earlier post in a sarcastic manner.
“Your song, Miss Fortun. Hahaha. Hahaha. “It’s no surprise to me I am my own worst enemy. Cause every now and then I kick the living shit out of me. Can we forget about the things I said when I was drunk. I didn’t mean to call you that”🎤🎤🎼🎼🎼”
This is not the first time that Sara Duterte-Carpio has made a tongue-lashing remark on social media against individuals which made negative reactions on her. The feisty mayor’s most unforgettable incident was when she punched a court sheriff who ordered the demolition of squatter houses at a time when the city was ravaged by flashflood.
