    Manny Pacquiao fired from Nike

    Manny Pacquiao has been FIRED over his anti-gay remarks that said, gay people are "worse than animals."

    After hearing of such words from Manny who was a Nike ambassador, the well-known label Nike issued a statement 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."

    As we previously reported, the two sides have had a relationship since at least 2006 — but Nike had a major problem with Manny saying gay people are "worse than animals."

    Manny personally tried to save the deal up until the last minute, sources connected to the situation revealed.

    We're told several members of Manny's team had been communicating with Nike all morning — begging the company to reconsider and give Manny another chance. 

    However it seems as if Nike has already made up its mind and it’s not willing take Manny back.
