Nike Reportedly Cutting Ties With Manny Pacquiao Over Anti-Gay Comments!
Talk about a step in the right direction!
While Adidas made history this past week by vowing to never fire a spokesperson if they come out of the closet, it looks like Nike has decided to make a move towards equality of their own.
That’s because after Manny Pacquiao‘s controversial statement that gay people are worse than animals, we’re hearing the athletic apparel company is about to cut ties with the MMA fighter!

Apparently, Nike doesn’t want to associate themselves with such a homophobic athlete, even if he is at the top of his field! YAY!!!
But if you’re not going to take our word for it, Manny’s Gym Training line has already been removed from the website entirely — though for now he is still on their Instagram page…
Do U think Nike is serious about coming out as pro-LGBT??
