MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED 10:26 p.m.) — Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte, PDP-Laban presidential candidate, on Sunday said he would rather lose than apologize for a remark about rape that he said was “called for.”

In a video posted online by The STAR reporter Robertzon Ramirez, Duterte said he is fine with losing the support of women’s group Gabriela and losing the presidential race altogether but he will stand by what he said.
“Do not make me apologize for something which I did (na talagang) it was called for,” he said.

On Saturday, a video of Duterte where the mayor was seen speaking at a political rally and telling a story about  an operation against criminals who raped a number of women went viral.

In his speech, Duterte expressed anger over the rape of one of the victims, an Australian lay minister whom he likened to a beautiful American actress and joked that the mayor (Duterte) should “have been first.”

Duterte’s remarks earned criticisms from his rivals in the presidential race as well as from netizens. Duterte supporters, meanwhile, said on social media that the video was taken out of context and that reactions to it were exaggerated.
