People are outraged over Manny Pacquiao's latest comments on homosexuality
This is like something from five centuries ago.
Tyson Fury has provoked a fierce backlash last year after making comments comparing paedophiles to homosexuals, and his fellow boxer Manny Pacquiao hasn't done himself any favours with his latest comments about gay people.
In an interview with TV5 as part of his senate campaign, the boxer-turned-politician said "It's common sense. Do you see animals mating with the same sex? Animals are better because they can distinguish male from female."
He went on to say "If men mate with men and women mate with women they are worse than animals."
Needless to say, the archaic attitude towards homosexuality has seen him come in for a lot of criticism on Twitter.
I will never celebrate a Manny Pacquiao win until he sincerely apologizes to the LGBT community.
