Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, June 28) — A lawyer lashed out at Frankie Pangilinan on social media over comments she made public about the impeachment trial of former Chief Justice Renato Corona.

Atty. Ferdie Topacio said Sunday that if only he were 12 years old, he would "bitch-slap" and curse her for being rude to the former chief justice, and challenged Pangilinan and her mother, singer Sharon Cuneta, to sue him.

"If I were 12 years old, I'd bitch-slap you and say F.U. for your rudeness to a dead, great man," Topacio posted on social media.

"Ate Shawie, since the SOJ is your friend, sue me! Bring it on!" he added.

Pangilinan posted on Thursday her notes about former Chief Justice Renato Corona's impeachment trial from when she was younger.

"I personally think he's guilty. He certainly looks tired," she wrote. "The chief justice is lying. I'm 95% sure of this."

The post has generated over 41 thousand reactions and six thousand shares as of writing.

Topacio also took a shot at Pangilinan's father, Senator Kiko Pangilinan, calling him a "lousy lawyer" and claiming he exploited his wife's popularity to win the election.
