SHARE:

NBA Hall-of-Fame Awardee Magic Johnson praises Megabrand Nike for terminating its endorsement contract with Manny Pacquiao.

The 8-Division Boxing Champ and Saranggani Representative Manny Pacquiao is on a great controversy after his “worse than animals” statement against same sex marriage and the LGBT community.

In a tweet by the 56 year-old former Los Angeles Lakers main guy, “I applaud Nike for terminating Manny Pacquiao’s contract after his derogatory statements that gay people are worse than animals.”

Although Pacquiao have issued his apology for his gay slur, Nike still dropped him from the roster of its endorsers and said that they have no relationship anymore with the Filipino champ.

“We find Manny Pacquiao’s comments abhorrent. Nike strongly opposes discrimination of any kind and has a long history of supporting and standing up for the rights of the LGBT community," Nike said in a statement.

Johnson also said that he won’t be watching any Pacquiao fights.

Pacquiao is set to have his final bout against Timothy Bradley on April 9.

Johnson’s son, Earvin III, is openly gay.
