NIKE: We find Manny Pacquiao's comments abhorrent
"We find Manny Pacquiao's comments abhorrent," said a Nike statement.
"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."
When you read the comment section of any article about Pacquiao's homophobia and see people supporting him, it can make you doubt that human beings are an evolved specie. Thank you NIKE for restoring our faith in humanity.
Not just for Manny, but this move can at least make the bigots out there think, even for a minute that maybe - just maybe, it isn't right to discriminate. Most of them may not change their minds, but the fact that this will make them doubt their ways is enough.
