Manny Pacquiao Apologizes for Calling Gay People 'Worse Than Animals'

While many people have seen Manny Pacquiao as the hero opposing the villain in Floyd Mayweather for the most part, the fact of the matter is that Pacquiao has made his fair share of questionable comments as well. Recently he put his foot in his mouth again, and because of that he has lost one of the most lucrative endorsements that an athlete can ask for.

Pacquiao recently made comments about the gay and lesbian community in which he compared them to animals — literally. Pacquiao has been known to not support same-sex marriage, but with the way he explained his feelings this time he just took things way too far for some people.
