World Net Daily Has The Manny Pacquiao Sadz

World Net Daily readers are vowing to boycott Nike after the sportswear giant yesterday fired boxing champion Manny Pacquiao over his “abhorrent” comments about gay people. From their story:

“It’s common sense,” the Christian athlete told TV5 in the the Philippines on Monday. “Do you see animals mating with the same sex? Animals are better because they can distinguish male from female. If men mate with men and women mate with women, they are worse than animals.”

Nike made the decision less than 24 hours after a new petition was launched against the boxer. “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,” the company said it a statement, TMZ reported. “We no longer have a relationship with Manny Pacquiao.”

Pacquiao, a congressman in the Philippines, used his official Twitter account on Tuesday to apologize for “hurting people,” but added, “I still stand on my belief that I’m against same-sex marriage because of what the Bible says.”

World Net Daily is encouraging readers to complain to Nike and has provided the company’s contact page. They’ve also posted a link to a 2012 listing of horrible companies that support LGBT civil rights.

This morning a JMG reader sent me the below photo from Nike’s corporate campus where their Pacquiao banner was replaced overnight.manban3RELATED: Earlier today Pacquiao posted and then deleted a biblical quote calling for gays to be executed.
