If you’re a man agreeing with Tito Sotto shaming that poor woman on TV, we’d better warn YOUR female friends not to get drunk with you, no?

Tito Sotto is the kind of gross creature you wish you never have to encounter in your life.

Horrible remarks. Now, I wonder why did the electorate voted for Tito Sotto. Don’t let fame override necessity.

I don’t understand women who defend Tito Sotto for his misogynistic remarks. You are all supposed to call him out for it, not join him.

It seems that Sen. Sotto isn’t having the best track record so far with past issues like his alleged plagiarism, reportedly defunding the RH Bill, and now this comment. Someone should really school him on what not to say on live television and to all women. A person of power should not have this kind of influence.
