Mike Tyson insists Manny Pacquiao should be banned at The Grove, calls Filipino ‘disrespectful’

Mike Tyson was in a fighting mood when he insisted that Philippine boxing icon Manny Pacquiao should be banned from The Grove because of the Filipino’s gay slur in recent months adding that the boxer-politician should learn to respect other people’s feelings.

TMZ caught up with Tyson at the Los Angeles International Airport on Friday and asked him for his comment about Pacquiao getting a ban at The Grove to which the 49-year old undisputed heavyweight champion swear at his answer.

“He should be F**KING BANNED from The Grove! Totally disrespectful of other people’s feelings,” Tyson said.

Tyson’s call for Pacquiao’s ban from The Grove is no surprise as many of the biggest names in sports and Hollywood were angered by the comments he made saying that gay individuals were “worse than animals” to which he quoted a Bible verse and even suggested that gay people should be put to death.

After earning lots of negative comments, the eight-division champ immediately apologized to those whom he had offended but explained that he will never change his position on same sex marriage.

Aside from sending a message to Pacquiao, Tyson also gave some piece of advice for beleaguered UFC fighter Jon Jones, who is set to meet Daniel Cormier on April 23 at UFC 197 in Las Vegas.

“He should get help…PROFESSIONAL Help is what he needs,” Tyson stressed.

On the other hand, TMZ was able to interview Manny Pacquiao and asked him about the ban over at The Grove, which is a famous tourist destination in Los Angeles as it is owned and operated by Rick J. Caruso. Pacquiao stated that he does not mind the ban and will continue to go over The Grove since it is a public place.

“I love everybody… It is a public place and it is available for everybody,” Pacquiao said in an interview at the Wild Card gym, where he trains for his third encounter with Timothy Bradley on April 9.

Pacquiao also noted that he is focused for the fight and after the Bradley match, which he considered as his last fight. He added that he will immediately go back to the Philippines after the match and focus on his political plans.

      The thing with you is that nobody cares about your posts, being that you are illiterate, that you can’t spell, that you can’t craft even one grammatically-correct simple goddamned sentence. Now, go back to your cage, you little spastic!

    Pacquio should be banned from the U.S. because of his hatred of animals and his religious superstition. There is no goddamned old man in the sky; plus, humans are an animal–a low form of animal that causes extinction of other species, and destroys the environment.

    Add to it that nowhere in the Holy Bible Book of Macabre Tales does the Lord (He opposes democracy) Jesus state that two men should punch each other in the head, until one lies down and goes to sleep; thus, the little Filipino twerp is a goddamned little hypocrite!

      Someone has some hate built up in them. What’s wrong… you didn’t get breastfeed when you were young like the other animals in the kingdom?

      …and btw, you’re a hypocrite too! You don’t believe in God but you want him to damn something (“goddamned”). Not just an idiot you are… but stupid with it. Hope you find what you are missing.

        It is perfectly clear that you are an illiterate, low-capacity whiskey-soaked hillbilly evangelist who can’t craft a grammatically-correct simple sentence. Moreover, you don’t understand literary convention, which, of course, is far beyond your limited cognitive ability.

        Your lowly kind all sound exactly alike, that you can never come up with anything clever and interesting, let alone something that has a framework in logic. That means that you, monkey-face, are a dull, boring cliches with no individuality whatsoever. You are a product of too much Duck Dynasty and WWE wrestling. Your kind can’t even hit to toilet, when you piss, hosing the floor for others to step in, you mouth-breathing dunce!

        You are too dumb to even know how stupid and backward you are, you shack-dwelling drain on society and the environment. Now, get back to what you were doing–drinking yourself to death.

    PLEASE SHARE THIS COMMENTS ON SOCIAL MEDIA. Due to his Rape conviction Tyson is banned to travel to some countries so it is very interesting for him to talk about Manny. Did Tyson really cared about the feelings of the woman he raped. Lets talk about Mike Tyson who supports Donald Trump and Tyson made very bad comments about president Obama to. Tyson is convicted Felon for Rape and he should not be talking about Manny. Manny is wrong but Mike Tyson is the last person to talk. Because Hollywood has boycotted Mike Tyson for the support of Donald Trump he is pandering and exploiting TMZ because he knows Harvey the owner of TMZ is Gay. For the record Harvey is a good guy and we like Harvey and all his articles. But Mike Tyson doesn’t talk about Snoop Dog When Snoop Dog made many comments about Gay People . What a double standard Mike! Why don’t you talk about your friend Snoop Dog or you afraid of the backlash in the rap community. So then there is not even a chance to get a movie gig. Oh we forgot maybe Donald Trump will have a new show called The Looser Apprentice and he will give you a roll in that show or you can start selling Trump Hot Dogs at his office in New York.
