PH’s top diplomat, Foreign Secretary Teodoro ‘Teddy Boy‘ Locsin Jr. is once again under fire on Twitter – and users have started calling him out in the most timely meme-tastic way.
Locsin’s week on Twitter started with criticism after he cursed Philippine Daily Inquirer reporter Jhesset Enano for live-tweeting President Rodrigo Duterte’s absence during the 35th ASEAN Summit.
‘Uh, did you get the putangina I sent you? That’s the last event, purely ceremonial and short. Jokowi had left, Mahathir too’ he had tweeted.

In an official statement by the Philippine Daily Inquirer, the media outlet said that ‘[Locsin’s tweet] was unbecoming of a diplomat and public official, and totally undeserved by Enano, who was doing her job.’
Now it seems that millennial Twitter users have had enough of the top diplomatic’s online sentiments, as he was recently flooded with mile-long ‘ok, boomer‘ replies for defending President Duterte’s decision to appoint Vice President Leni Robredo as PH’s ‘drug czar‘.
Suspect, suspect, hoy, mga siokeh. He's serious. He doesn't want the credit; if you don't like him carrying out the war on drugs you're welcome to take the job; get it done or not. Fail—he won't comment, just take back the job and finish them all if he can. https://t.co/zzjN7QyYdd

The screenshots don’t do justice to the number of replies, as Locsin’s tweet has over 2.2K and counting replies as of writing. His notifs must be blowing up, TBH.
Locsin has even had the time to reply to some of the ‘ok, boomers‘ in his own way:
Okay Boobo. https://t.co/abvmWbbfbQ
