Just when we thought Manny Pacquiao couldn't be any worse…

Earlier this week, the famed boxer/Philippine Senator spoke out against an anti-discrimination legislative proposal which is slated to protect the rights of transgender individuals. Not to mention, the document is also meant to help prevent discrimination against those who are cross-dressers in the Philippines. So, why does Manny have a problem with this piece of potential legislation??

Editor-in-chief Emmanuelle Alt explained and defended the decision in her monthly editor's letter, saying:

"Apart from one small detail, Valentina, the femme fatale, was born a boy. It's a detail one would prefer not to have to mention… but Valentina is on the cover of Vogue this month, not just for her looks or her sparkling personality, but because despite herself she embodies an age-old arduous struggle to be recognized and not to be perceived as something Other."

Valentina has previously covered Elle in Brazil, but being on the cover of Vogue Paris, one of the leading magazines in fashion, is a big deal.

We feel so bad for Frank Ocean

As we reported last year, the musician penned a touching Tumblr post after the Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando, Florida. In the essay, the 29-year-old speaks openly about his personal experiences with homophobia, including an incident where his father — Calvin Cooksey — made a derogatory statement to a transgender waitress when he was merely a child.

The rapper wrote:

"I was six years old when I heard my dad call our transgender waitress a f*ggot as he dragged me out a neighborhood diner saying we wouldn't be served because she was dirty."

Fast forward to Thursday, Ocean's father is suing his son for $14.5 million based on what he wrote!

Cooksey's defamation lawsuit not only discredits Frank's story, it claims the post has damaged Calvin's opportunities in the film and music industry.

Sadly, this isn't the first time the artist's father has filed a crazy lawsuit. In 2014, he sued Russell Simmons for $142 million after his website — Global Grind — called him a deadbeat dad.

It's always sad when money comes between a family…
