Manny Pacquiao went on a disgusting homophobic rant on a local Filipino news show, calling the gay community lower than animals! What sparked his incredibly offensive remarks? Click through to read his horrible statement!
Champion boxer Manny Pacquiao strongly condemns same-sex marriage, and believes that people in gay relationships are worse than animals. The boxer was in the middle of an interview with a local TV news station in the Philippines on February 16, when he was asked about his stance on gay marriage. Oh, we wish they hadn’t asked! Click through to see his shocking statement!
“It’s common sense, Manny told his interviewer. “Will you see any animals where male is to male and female is to female? The animals are better. They know how to distinguish male from female. If we approve [of] male on male, female on female, then man is worse than animals.” We’re incredibly disgusted at what he said. How could he think this would be okay, and especially on live television?

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.

The Pac Man actually realized that his words were extremely offensive, and did apologize for his actions. He posted a series of Instagram videos on February 16, personally expressing his regret for saying something so dumb! “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,” he captioned all three videos.
Talk about a backhanded apology! He realizes he went a bit too far comparing the LGBT community to animals, but he’s still pretty sure they’re going to hell! Gross. It appears that Manny’s going to continue to crusade against same-sex marriage, but be more careful about his words. Try to think before you speak, Manny!
