BREAKING: Oxford Dictionary acknowledged a Filipino swear used by Duterte

SHARE:

Duterte's alleged swearing against Obama made Oxford Dictionary to acknowledge the Filipino word.

A post made by Dong Abay, a Filipino singer-blogger, went viral for its humorous remark regarding President Rodrigo Duterte's swearing against President Barack Obama which Duterte clarified later on that it was not personal nor directed to Obama.

Recently, a meeting between the two presidents was supposed to happen during the regional summit in Laos but due to Duterte saying 'tangina' (son of a whore), it was cancelled. This sparked many people to be in rage against Duterte, Filipinos and foreigners alike.

Humor of some people did not let this one slide as a Filipino netizen made a joke about it, saying that the word 'tangina', despite being Tagalog, has been acknowledged and included in the Oxford Dictionary.


Abay's post went viral, gaining a mix of sarcasm and anger from Filipinos.
