In his article, Chip depicted the Philippines as a “nation of servants” not worthy of claiming the Spratlys from China, which employs hundreds of thousands of Filipino domestic helpers on very low wages.

In the same article, Chip threatened to terminate the employment of his Filipino domestic help, Louisa (whom he claims holds a degree in international politics from the University of Manila), to avoid committing an act of treason “by sponsoring an enemy of the State by paying her to wash my toilet and clean my windows.”

Meanwhile, lawmakers have urged the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) to lodge a formal protest before Hong Kong authorities and have joined calls in demanding a public apology from the Hong Kong publication and from Chip Tsao himself.
