Sass Rogando Sasot, a known supporter of President Rodrigo Duterte said that she remains unapologetic after her stint with BBC reporter  Jonathan Head during the ASEAN Summit.

Sasot was upset after BBC invited for an interview anti-administration blogger Jover Laurio.



“Can you tell me how is it possible that Jover Laurio, a very minor blogger in the Philippines was featured  by the BBC in order to defend herself…but not someone like me whose social media following is way way higher than her, whose Facebook  engagement is way way higher than her and who you had even interacted on Facebook?” Sasot asked.

“Why were you not concerned about my safety but you were concerned about Jover Laurio?” she further asked.

With the act garnering several criticisms, Sasot defended herself by bringing up the issue of White supremacy and American abuse in the country throughout history.

She first demanded respect from the "white people" for they do not understand the realities of Filipinos and her sensibilities as a Filipino was offended by them.

Then on Tuesday, Sasot posted another statement in her Facebook account, claiming that she remains unapologetic.



She further hit the Liberal Party.

"The yellow-brown slaves of White people feel the need to apologize to BBC, the tool of the British government to further its interests. In other words, apologize that a brown skinned (trans)woman called out the BS of the Orientalist machine.You can't find Westerners having that apologetic attitude when their fellows confront Asian institutions. Why? They don't have a slave mentality," she said.

She added that the "white people" do not even know how to apologize for their acts.

"Have you heard the Dutch people apologizing on behalf of Thomas van Beersum when he violated the terms of his visa to PH when he participated in a partisan political event in the PH? The Aquino admin deported and blacklisted him. The Inquirer defended van Beersum in an editorial," she said.

"Have you heard White people apologizing for the pedophiles of their race who fucked our children out of their innocence? Between being banished and continuing my rage against an Orientalist machine, I choose rage. #UnapologeticPunK," she added.
