Aww, Boxer Manny Pacquiao has been fired by Nike as a brand ambassador over his anti-gay comments. Nike issued a statement this evening saying;

“We find Manny Pacquiao’s comments abhorrent. Nike strongly opposes discrimination of any kind and has a long history of supporting and standing up for the rights of the LGBT community. We no longer have a relationship with Manny Pacquiao.”
