Nike Ends Multi-Million Dollar Endorsement Deal With Manny Pacquiao
Boxing star Manny Pacquiao apologized today for stating that gay relationships were as “worse than animals” but stands by his opposition to same-sex marriage.
The fallout from Manny’s anti-gay have officially hit the fan because according to TMZ, Nike has dropped the boxer from their endorsement roster:
The two sides have had a relationship since at least 2006 — but we’re told Nike is particularly disturbed after Pacquiao said gay people are “worse than animals” … and intend to drop the boxer for good.
We’re told the move is not official yet — but there have been multiple discussions and we’re told it appears to be heading in that direction.
We reached out to Manny’s rep — so far, no comment.
Nike has already wiped their online store of all of Manny’s related merch. Bye homosexual haters!
