Nike has terminated Manny Pacquiao’s contract following his claims that gay couples are “worse than animals.”
“It’s common sense. Do you see animals mating with the same sex? Animals are better because they can distinguish male from female. If men mate with men and women mate with women they are worse than animals," he said.
Darren Rovell of ESPN provided Nike’s confirmation:
Pacquiao has been a Nike athlete since 2006, and as noted by TMZ, all of his merchandise has seemingly been dropped from the manufacturer’s website.
