Jim Paredes questions Bato Dela Rosa: ‘Sinong pa cute?’
Filipino musician Jim Paredes poked fun at Sen. Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa over the latter’s “pa-cute” remark on Vice President Leni Robredo upon her acceptance of the drug czar post.
Paredes, former member of the music group APO Hiking Society and staunch critic of the Duterte administration, took to Twitter earlier today, Nov. 11, to share a screenshot of a meme of Dela Rosa.
“Sinong pa-cute? (Who is playing cute?)” Paredes asked.

The photo, posted by one Instagram user jtgf1966, shows a happy Dela Rosa with an exaggerated smile next to what appears to be a laughing puppet version of the senator.
“What a joke. An unfunny one,” the netizen said.
Dela Rosa’s “pa-cute” remark to Robredo was also inserted in the meme: “Giyera eto. You have to fight. Hindi ka pwedeng magpacute dito (This is war. You have to fight. You cannot play cute here.)”
Last April, Duterte mocked Paredes for supposedly having a “small penis,” in reference to his leaked sex video scandal earlier this year.
Robredo accepted President Rodrigo Duterte’s offer to give her the co-chairperson post of the Inter-Agency Committee on Anti-Illegal Drugs last Wednesday, Nov. 6. JB
