“Hanggang kamatayan, ipaglalaban ko ang aking karapatan,” Abunda said, directly referring to Pacquiao as he spoke before the camera.
He said Pacquiao made use of the term “common sense” when he spoke in an earlier TV interview about same-sex marriage done by people “worse than animals.”
“Common sense, sino ka para husgahan ako na mas masahol pa sa hayop. Common sense, iboboto ko ba ang kandidatong tinawag akong mas masahol pa sa hayop,” Abunda ended.
Pacquiao found an ally in Vice President Jejomar Binay, who defended him. Vice presidential aspirant also defended Pacquiao saying that the 8-division boxing champion is entitled to his own opinion.
Binay said people should understand Pacquiao because of his background as a born-again pastor. Pacquiao is running for senator under Binay’s United Nationalist Alliance party.
Before Abunda’s statement was aired, Manny Pacquiao apologized to those who was hurt by his comments but retains his stand on same-sex marriage.
