Duterte impersonator sparks frenzy

Central Station | Feb 4, 2019
A Rodrigo Duterte impersonator sparked frenzy and confusion during Sunday mass when he walked into a Hong Kong church popular with the city's Filipino community. Accompanied by Howard X - the local impersonator of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un - Filipino actor Cresencio Extreme arrived at St Joseph's Church in Central, dressed as the Philippine president. Hundreds of distracted worshippers erupted into cheers, but settled down for the hour-long service. After mass ended, worshippers mobbed him. While most did not mind the stunt, one woman said she found it "impolite." The real Duterte has repeatedly attacked the church, accusing the Catholic clergy of sexual abuse. The church has been one of his most outspoken critics.
