MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Former lawmaker and television host Teodoro “Teddyboy” Locsin Jr. has accepted his appointment as the Philippines’ ambassador to the United Nations (UN), Malacañang said Sunday.

As the new UN ambassador, Locsin will be able to improve on his English and other language skills as he interacts with other dignitaries from across the globe.

Locsin is not particularly keen on his own national language, Tagalog, which he has described as “bullshitty” and “useless a tongue for debate.” His comments came right after the Philippine presidential debate earlier this year, in which he criticized some candidates for speaking in Tagalog.

Locsin has conducted his television show in English, albeit in a heavy accent.  But he hopes to hone his English skills during his stint as Philippine ambassador to the UN.
