Midler called Duterte a “murderous dictator.”

Duterte is known for his extreme tolerance for criticism, but he has had enough.

Today, the popular Filipino leader said he has instructed his attorney general to file a libel case against Midler.

Although Midler is in the United States, Duterte said he is filing the case “from a distance.”

Incidentally, “From a Distance” is one of Midler’s hit songs.

How appropriate!
