NIKE FIRES MANNY PACQUIAO

Sometimes sorry isn’t enough, and that is certainly the case for Manny Pacquiao.

In case you missed it, Pacquiao recently let out a string of highly offensive comments directed towards the LGBT community. Hinting that being anti-gay should be “common sense,” the famed-boxer stated,

 

“Have you seen any animal having male-to-male or female-to-female relations?”

And now, despite all of his efforts to backtrack, Manny and his contract have been completely dropped by Nike. He posted a video on his personal Instagram, apologizing to his fans and those he offended.

 

 

 

 

Nike was completely unbothered by his apology and have released an official statement saying they are no longer partnering with Manny professionally:

 

“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.”

 

Perhaps this will teach Manny a much-needed lesson. Props to Nike for taking a stance against him and doing the right thing.

Do you think he should’ve been fired? Let us know!
