This… isn't much of an apology, Manny.
Manny Pacquiao had a bit of a controversy on his hands on Monday when he called homosexuals worse than animals while campaigning for a spot in the Philippines government.
And while he clearly upset a lot of his LGBT supporters, it doesn't look like he's too bothered by the hate.

The 37-year-old issued a public apology for his comment early Tuesday morning, but he actually does more harm than good, saying:
"I'm sorry for hurting people by comparing homosexuals to animals. Please forgive me for those I've hurt. I still stand on my belief that I'm against same sex marriage because of what the Bible says, but I'm not condemning LGBT. I love you all with the love of the Lord. God Bless you all and I'm praying for you."
So you want their votes still, but don't want to give equality to everyone?
Hopefully Manny's homophobic viewpoints either lose him the race, or the backlash he gets helps to shine a little light on his ignorance.
