Nike has announced that they no longer want to be a part of the Pacquiao name after Manny posted on social media his feelings about gay folks as you can see below:
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.
Even after Nike dumped the boxing stud, he claims that what he said is exactly how he feels and is a part of his religious beliefs, which you really can’t knock. The boxer also could probably care less about the Nike money as he has netted over $600 Million to date, so it ain’t like he’s hurting any.
ShowbizSpy reached out to Pacman and got the following during a phone call: “Hey, I am sorry that what I said offended so many people, however I am sticking to my guns about what I said. I believe that man should not lay with man, end of story.”
So how do you feel about what Pacman said publicly? Do you agree or disagree? Let us know in the comments below.
Here is some video of Manny doing his thing:
