Manny Pacquiao’s Flimsy Apology After Saying Gay People Are Worse Than Animals
Boxing star Manny Pacquiao’s Flimsy Apology After Saying Gay People Are Worse Than Animals, but he still stands by his opposition to same-sex marriage!!!
You are probably asking then why did Manny Pacquiao apologize if they are just words without true feelings of remorse? Get the deets on the flip…
Did you hear, Manny Pacquiao’s Flimsy Apology After Saying Gay People Are Worse Than animals?
Does Manny realize that there are tons of gay people in boxing, film and music?
What appears to be a move by Manny Pacquiao’s PR team, Boxing champion Manny Pacquiao sent shock waves through his native Philippines saying gay relationships were as “worse than animals”!
What does that even mean?
Well, Pacquiao feels that gays are like animals? He said in the remarks posted online by the TV5 network.
“It’s just common sense…Have you seen any animal having male-to-male or female-to-female relations?”
Yes and Yes, Animals tend to do that when two male dogs are in a room and one is the alpha and wants to be dominate, but Pacquiao obviously didn’t do his research before mouthing off and sounding like an utter fool!
CelebNSports247.com has what Manny said, while posting the photo above of four men spooning, and Pacquiao being one of them:
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.”
Among those who reacted strongly was popular gay comedian and TV host Jose Marie Viceral, known as Vice Ganda. Vice Ganda tweeted that lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgenders are humans, not animals. He said that they’re not saints but that they’ll pray for the boxer, who is widely acclaimed for bringing his country honors.
Vice Ganda posted a picture of Pope Francis, suggesting that even the beloved leader of the Roman Catholic church does not condemn gays. He quoted the pope: “If a person is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge.
Manny PISSED off a few fellow Filipino celebrities who were among those criticizing his remarks, made when a TV network asked candidates about their views on same-sex marriage.
He followed his anti-gay statement with the following flimsy apology along with this photo:
“I rather obey the Lord’s command than obeying the desires of the flesh. Im not condemning anyone, but I’m just telling the truth of what the Bible says. The truth from the Bible is what changed me from my old ways. 1 Corinthians 6:9 “ Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men.”
God Bless everyone i love you all. @johnnybantilan @david.sisson”
Then Manny Pacquiao released this flimsy apology:
“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.”

No matter which way his PR team has him spin it, at the end of the day Manny still thinks gays are like animals, except this time he’s NOT going to post it. He’ll just be thinking it!
So there you go, another celebrity giving an empty apology to satisfy everyone’s feelings. Let’s get REAL some people are cool with homosexuality and interracial relationships, but many are still NOT. Just like diversity some are for it and some are NOT, we can’t make everyone loving and tolerant, so if you’re gay know NOT to support Pacquiao because he doesn’t like gay people! And that’s the bottom line. Thank PR team for trying to tell everyone what they want to hear, but it’s too late and the apology came of forced like he was reading a cue card.
