Nike Ends Contract With Manny Pacquio After Homophobic Comment

Nike is dropping professional boxer Manny Pacquio after 'gay people are worse than animals' remark.


Nike's statement:
"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."

Manny's "apology":
“I'm sorry for hurting people by comparing homosexuals to animals,” Pacquiao wrote. “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.”
