Manny Pacquiao Fired By Nike: ‘Anti-Gay Comments Are Abhorrent’
Nike has cut all ties with Manny Pacquiao. The company made it official in a scathing statement today.
Nike said (via TMZ):
“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.”
Apparently, Manny Pacquiao tried to save his deal up to the last minute – but to no avail.
Serves him right. He is a low life human being. So glad Nike took action. It is best not to be associated with this sorry excuse of a person.
This is what Pacquiao said about gays in an interview with Philippine media this week:
“It’s common sense. Will you see any animals where male is to male and female is to female. The animals are better. They know how to distinguish male from female. If we approve [of] male on male, female on female, then man is worse than animals.”
