Don’t mess with Dave Bautista. The movie hard man is coming after Manny Pacquiao after the welterweight boxer made some ill-judged comments about gay people. The Spectre star has called Manny a ‘f*****g idiot’ for his lack of judgement in a shocking new video, which you can watch by clicking here.
Movie tough-guy Dave Bautista, 47, has slammed boxing champ Manny Pacquiao, 37, for his recent criticism about homosexuality by labeling him a “f*****g idiot.” The Bond villain admitted that his mom is gay and he’s extremely offended by Manny’s latest comments, in a video acquired by TMZ.
Manny put his foot in it earlier this week when he said that animals were better than gay people “because they can distinguish between male and female.” It seems those comments were the ones that irked the former WWE wrestler the most. Manny did try to say sorry soon after, but stood by his beliefs in a botched apology saying, “What I am saying is right. I mean I am just stating the truth, what the Bible says.” But soon he wished death upon gay people, which led to Nike dropping him from a major endorsement deal.
“My opinion on that is he’s a f*****g idiot,” Dave told the paparazzi when asked what his feelings were on Manny’s lapse of judgement. “My mom happens to be a lesbian so I don’t f*****g take that sh*t. I don’t think it’s funny.”
Dave continued his assault on Manny, insisting that if anyone dared say that to his momma, he would have to live up to his tough guy persona. “If anyone called my mother an animal I’d stick my foot in his ass,” he said. And while he has great respect for Manny as a boxer, he thinks his opinions suck! “but as far as his opinions, stick that up your ass,” Dave added.
Intriguingly, Dave and Manny must’ve been tight once upon a time. Back in 2009, he walked the Filipino boxer to the ring for his fight against Ricky Hatton for The Ring light welterweight championship in Las Vegas, NV.
