Lawyer comments on VP’s outfit during the 88th National Day of Saudi celebration

Attorney Bruce Rivera has once again shot a hit towards one of the members of the opposition. This time, against Vice President Maria Leonor “Leni” Robredo and the outfit that she wore during an event held in the Philippines which mainly included Muslim politicians and personalities.

In the photo that Rivera shared, it can be seen that Vice President Robredo was wearing a olive dress that was see-through lace from her knees, below.

According to Rivera, what the vice president wore to the event was wrong and disrespectful towards the Muslim culture. He said that showing skin, even your knees, is something that the Muslims are against because they heavily require their women to cover themselves up.

He even commented that it looked like what the vice president was wearing is something that you would wear to a party and not that of a dignitary.

He adds that what Robredo did, he feels is an insult to the Filipino people who are of Islamic faith.

“It is not only an insult to your host but also an insult to the Filipino Muslims you represent,” Rivera said.

Read his full post here:

"Madame VP,

I should be the last person saying this being very fashion forward and a bit risque but as Vice President of the Philippines, you represent the country and its sensibilities.

The Philippines has a Muslim population hence, there is no excuse for you to be insensitive to Muslim culture. The Kingdom of Saud Arabia (or even its embassy in the Philippines) is a Muslim state with very strict religious dress code. As their guest, the least you can do is dress properly or dress like a dignitary and not someone who will be attending a party.

Even if there was a skin-toned slip underneath that dress, it is still considered improper if you are visiting a Muslim country especially if you are representing the Philippines where Muslims are part of the people you represent. It is not only an insult to your host but also an insult to the Filipino Muslims you represent.

How can you be President if we cannot even rely on you sensitivities and good taste."
