…and set to some *touching* music! For the love the game!
Backlash surrounding boxer Manny Pacquiao and his homophobic comments from earlier this year (saying that gays were worse than dogs) seems to continue to haunt him — this time it’s coming from his previous opponent, Shane Mosley.
The former world champ said he’d love to get back in the ring with Pacquiao, and this time he’d be fighting in honor of the LGBT community. It was his girlfriend who first came up with the idea, and coaxed the fighter into agreeing he’d fight in the name of gay rights.
“One of my sisters is gay,” she told her man sternly. “You better!”
‘Bitch, you bettah!’ she says! I am loving his girlfriend right now…
So what do you say Manny? Up for round 2?
Manny Pacquiao is a boxer who had million-dollar endorsement deals with companies like NIKE and Wonderful Pistachios, that is UNTIL he compared gays to animals recently by saying:
“It’s just common sense,” Pacquiao said in an interview earlier this week. “Have you seen any animal having male-to-male or female-to-female relations?” Animals, he said, were better because they recognize gender differences, and “if you have male-to-male or female-to-female [relationships], then people are worse than animals.”
Well his endorsement deals weren’t feeling his hateful vibes, and promptly canned his ass saying:
“Wonderful Pistachios is not currently affiliated with Manny Pacquiao nor do his views align with ours,” said Clark. “Wonderful Pistachios stands firmly for diversity and equality, and we proudly support marriage equality and inclusion around the world.”
“Nike strongly opposes discrimination of any kind and has a long history of supporting and standing up for the rights of the LGBT community,” the company said of Pacquiao’s “abhorrent” statement. “We no longer have a relationship with Manny Pacquiao.”
Funny, I suddenly have a craving for Nike and pistachios… and I’m allergic to nuts!
