Following President Rodrigo Duterte's threat to leave the United Nations (UN) after the latter has expressed its concern on the rising number of extra-judicial killings, social media users went online to express what they think about the President's comments.

Duterte lambasted the UN for its supposedly “insulting” attitude towards his administration after special rapporteur of the U.N. on summary executions Agnes Callamard expressed her interest to investigate the summary executions in the country resulting from the President's war on drugs.

According to Duterte, who is known for his strong stance against illegal drugs and criminality, the UN is not in the best position to comment on the drug war in the Philippines because they lack the relevant knowledge and information about the different aspects of fighting crime in the country.
