Floyd Mayweather has come down heavily on Manny Pacquiao this time for his comments on gay people.
Well for starters, Pacquiao has slammed gay people calling them “worse than animals”.
Yes, that’s right.
Pacquiao who is running for the Philippine senatorial election stated his views when he and fellow senatorial candidates were asked by the local TV5 network about their views on gay people and same-sex marriage.
“It’s just common sense,” said the 37-year-old Pacquiao, reports FOX Sports. “Have you seen any animal having male-to-male or female-to-female relations?”
Pacquiao who is also a member of the House of Representatives said that animals are better because they recognize gender differences.
“If you have male-to-male or female-to-female (relationships), then people are worse than animals,” the legendary boxer said.
His comments on gay people have drawn sharp reaction from people across the world.
“He is running for a national position and he should be a senator of everybody, not just over the hill boxers and straight people,” Danton Remoto of the LGBT group Ladlad said.
And the latest to criticise Manny is Floyd Mayweather.
TMZ caught Mayweather shopping for jewellery in New York when he was asked about Manny’s recent comments.
Mayweather’s response was simple and straight forward.
In his message to Manny, Mayweather simply asked him to stop throwing shade at gay people.
“I think we all should stay positive,” Mayweather said.
“We should let people live their lives the way they want to live their lives. To each his own,” he added.
Clearly, Floyd has won our hearts again this time.
As for Pacquiao, he would rather obey the God’s command than obeying the desires of the flesh. Atleast that’s what his Instagram post says.
