Atty. Ferdinand Topacio tweets gay slur about press undersecretary Manuel Quezon III, engages in word war with presidential spokesperson Atty. Edwin

GMA News Online reports that on October 27, Atty. Ferdinand Topacio, who is identified as a lawyer of former president and current Rep.

that on October 27, Atty. Ferdinand Topacio, who is identified as a lawyer of former president and current Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, "tweeted that Communications Undersecretary Manuel Quezon III is a ’faggot of the worst kind.’" The report noted that Topacio "denied being homophobic." Topacio is the same lawyer who said he would cut of one of his balls to prove that Arroyo was trustworthy.

 

In reponse to Topacio’s gay slur tweet, Palace spokesman Atty. Edwin Lacierda tweeted: "Ferdie Topacio is a BIGOT! Same guy who said d Holocaust never happened!" To which Topacio replied: "Hahaha. You can't talk without subtracting from the sum total of human knowledge, my friend. Stick to your stuttering."

 

In a phone interview with GMA News Online, Topacio claimed that his tweet about Quezon was a delayed reaction to a blog post written by Quezon in which he described Topacio as "Hitler-loving."  (For the record, Topacio is very vocal about his fascination with Adolf Hitler.) The report noted: "In a February 22 blog post, Quezon had written about the attempt by former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and her husband Mike to leave the country after getting a temporary restraining order from the Supreme Court, which was then headed by impeached Chief Justice Renato Corona."

 

Meanwhile, an InterAksyon.com report by Joseph Holandes Ubalde revealed that Quezon was "not concerned" by Topacio’s "unfortunate" tweet. Quezon has long been open about his sexuality.
