The Curse Words President Duterte Shouldn’t Have Said During the SONA


When it comes to profanities, there is a fine line between freedom of expression and using it inappropriately. There are some statements that can be made more impactful but there is a right time and place for everything. Let’s take Pres. Rodrigo Duterte during the SONA 2017 as an example. During his speech, he opened up his curse words dictionary and added these words throughout his address. For something of this magnitude and importance (and with the general public and the rest of the world as his audience), it would have been nice to hear him veer away from cursing. He would have been able to get his point across without them. As the country tuned in to this year’s SONA from their homes and offices, here are the curse words that Pres. Duterte shouldn’t have said.
