"Manny, who are you to judge us? Where did you get the power to say we're worse than animals? You're running for Senator. Am I going to vote for someone who thinks I'm worse than animals? Manny, the answer to that, your word - COMMON SENSE", Boy Abunda told TWBA viewers last night.
Before Tito Boy's statement, Manny already apologized in a video posted across his social media accounts for his offensive comments.
In his apology, Pacquiao admitted his mistake of comparing the LGBT community to animals. "I'm sorry to all those people I've hurt. I still stand on my belief that I'm against same sex marriage, but I was wrong when I compared them to animals. I'm humbling myself before you and before God," said Paquiao.
I'm sorry for hurting people by comparing homosexuals to animals. Please forgive me for those I've hurt. I still stand on my belief that I'm against same sex marriage because of what the Bible says, but I'm not condemning LGBT. I love you all with the love of the Lord. God Bless you all and I'm praying for you.Posted by Manny Pacquiao on Tuesday, February 16, 2016
The boxing superstar and outgoing Saranggani Representative is seeking for a seat in the Philippine senate and this controversy will surely affect his candidacy - he might be losing the LGBT votes. - Mykiru.ph
