Just a couple of hours after his outburst on Twitter, Foreign Affairs Secretary Teddyboy Locsin has apologized to Vice President Leni Robredo over his “boba” comment.

After a netizen asked him to go easy on Robredo, Locsin tweeted; “Yes. That’s no way for a gentleman to speak to a lady. Apologies,”

“She is our Vice President. I have apologized,” Locsin also said

Locsin admitted that it was not right to call the second highest official of the country ‘stupid.

“She is the only successor to the President. Elections alone determine who takes what post; not public sentiment. Besides she really won the election. 200,000 is huge,”  the DFA chief said

Robredo’s camp earlier reacted to Locsin’s series of tweets calling her ‘boba’ or idiot over the cancellation of diplomatic passports.

On a tweet, Barry Gutierrez, Robredo's spokesperson hit back at the Foreign Affairs secretary.

“Cancelling ‘courtesy’ diplomatic passports after China refused to honor Sec ADR’s is not promoting professionalism but justifying cowardice. Besides, if @teddyboylocsin really wanted to limit these passports to “real, working diplomats” he should start by cancelling his own,” Gutierrez said in a tweet
