Netizens Call Out Sen. Tito Sotto for His Victim-Shaming Remark on Live TV

In today’s controversial news: Senator Tito Sotto is under fire once again for implying that it was a woman’s fault that she was taken advantage of while she was drunk.

The remark was stated during yesterday’s episode of Eat Bulaga where he and his co-hosts Jose Manalo and Wally Bayola were talking to a woman who’d won their contest. The woman reportedly told them the story of how she was taken advantage of by a male friend. Tito reacts to this by blaming the victim for drinking too much and possibly wearing short shorts.

Of course, netizens pounced on the issue and called them out on the sexist comments.

It seems that Sen. Sotto isn’t having the best track record so far with past issues like his alleged plagiarism, reportedly defunding the RH Bill, and now this comment. Someone should really school him on what not to say on live television and to all women. A person of power should not have this kind of influence.
