On Monday (June 24), Department of Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. slammed Vice President Leni Robredo. This, after the latter commented on former DFA secretary Albert Del Rosario's passport cancellation.

VP Leni expressed her stance on Del Rosario's passport cancellation in her weekly radio show, “BISErbisyong Leni”.

The cancellation of the diplomatic passports of former foreign affairs secretary made headlines after he was denied entry in Hong Kong on June 19.

“Ang reaksyon ng bansa natin imbes na ipagtanggol iyong mamamayan ng Pilipinas, parang sinisi pa at kinancel (Our country’s reaction is to throw blame and cancel [the diplomatic passport]),” the Vice President said.

The incumbent DFA secretary, however, said that all courtesy diplomatic passports were canceled so as not to “single out Del Rosario.”

On Twitter, Locsin tweeted about Robredo and said: “Hey boba, that is precisely why I have ordered the cancellation of all courtesy diplomatic passports because I refuse to single out Del Rosario,”

“Will someone please do her the kindness to give her a brain? Here I am trying to do what’s right, which is to restrict diplomatic passports to real existing working diplomats so as not to devalue them abroad—and not pass them out as favors to retirees and friends,” he added.

But it didn't take long before the top diplomat and Duterte ally apologized to Robredo.

“I don’t mean to be disrespectful Ma’am, you are just a missing heartbeat away from the Presidency. I respect you for that accident of fortune. But there are things that require a measure of study & thought. Please ask me next time. At your service, Ma’am,” Locsin said in his tweet.
