MANILA - Jover Laurio, the woman behind the "Pinoy Ako Blog," and political scientist Antonio Contreras engaged in a heated exchange Wednesday morning over some of the insulting remarks made by both pro- and anti-Duterte personalities in the past months.

Laurio is now at the center of controversy after she was identified as the personality behind Pinoy Ako Blog. The blogger said she has been subjected to hate messages and insults from both popular and casual supporters of President Rodrigo Duterte online. 

Contreras, a De La Salle University Professor, said it was Laurio who first attacked and insulted the vocal supporters of President Rodrigo Duterte like Mocha Uson, Lorraine Badoy and Sass Sasot.

He added that the "Pinoy Ako" blogger owes him an apology for calling him "balahura" (filthy mouth) when he posted something that questioned the credentials of Vice President Leni Robredo. He also recalled Laurio calling Badoy "retokada" and a "prostitute."
