This is not the way to end a career Pacman!
Manny Pacquiao is under fire for recent comments he made about gay people, and it appears as if he gives absolutely no fawks what-so-ever.
It all started earlier this week when a video of Pacquiao condemning gay marriage in an interview started making the rounds online..
The boxing superstar, who has made it known that he would like to run for president in the Philippines, was speaking with a local TV news station when he basically said that gays are worse than animals.
“It’s common sense,” Pacquiao said. “Will you see any animals where male is to male and female is to female?”
He continued, “The animals are better. They know how to distinguish male from female. If we approve male on male, female on female, then man is worse than animals.”
Manny quickly found himself on the receiving end of a ton of backlash, and he quickly responded with a video apologizing for comparing gay people to animals, though he didn’t back down on his stance of being against gay marriage.
Despite Manny’s “sorry not sorry” apology, Nike fired him the very next day, immediately ending their decade-long relationship.
Nike issued a public statement saying, “We find Manny Pacquiao’s comments abhorrent. Nike strongly opposes discrimination of any kind and has a long history of supporting and standing up for the rights of the LGBT community. We no longer have a relationship with Manny Pacquiao.”
