Manny Pacquiao has been dropped by Nike, who is also one of his biggest sponsors. The reason: he made some extremely homophobic remarks, comparing gay people to animals. His comments were made on TV.
Pacquiao's anti-gay comments were made when a Filipino TV network asked political candidates how they feel about gay people:
“It’s just common sense. Have you seen any animal having male-to-male or female-to-female relations?”
Pacquiao went on to explain that animals were better because they recognized gender differences, and that “if you have male-to-male or female-to-female [relationships], then people are worse than animals.”
Nike wasn't having any of this:
And then he apologized:
I'm sorry for hurting people by comparing homosexuals to animals. Please forgive me for those I've hurt. I still stand on my belief that I'm against same sex marriage because of what the Bible says, but I'm not condemning LGBT. I love you all with the love of the Lord. God Bless you all and I'm praying for you.
