Justin Bieber makes fun of Manny Pacquiao on Instagram

Justin Bieber making fun of Manny Pacquiao's knockout loss has disappointed Filipino fans.

Filipino Manny Pacquiao got knocked out in 6th round by Mexican Juan Manuel Marquez during their fight yesterday, and while the Filipinos are still hurting and grieving over Pacquiao's loss, here's Canadian singer Justin Bieber making fun of said Manny Pacquiao's shocking knockout.

A proud supporter of the undefeated American boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr., Justin Bieber posted in his Instagram account these photos mocking Manny Pacquiao's knockout loss.

I already saw these memes right after the Pacquiao - Marquez fight. Netizens even invented the new terms "Mannying" and "Pacquaoing" to describe motionless Pacquiao after the KO, then Justin Bieber later re-posted them on Instagram and added captions to each.

For the first photo, Bieber said, "Pacquiao doing the lean with MJ. Classic moment.". And for the second one, he captioned it with this: "Dad wake up".

For the Filipinos, who consider Manny Pacquiao a national hero, found Justin Bieber's postings as offensive, insulting and showing disrespect to the
8-division world champion from the Philippines.

Even Pinoy celebrities like UST Star Player Jeric Teng, Mr. World 2012 1st Runner Up Andrew Wolff and TV Host Kat De Castro tweeted dislike to Bieber's Instagram posts.

jericteng16: "Disrespecting Pacquiao means disrespecting us Filipinos also! This is madness!!! #RespectThePhilippinesBieber"

AndrewWolff_: "@justinbieber is an IDIOT. Pacquiao vs Bieber. Wouldn't even last 3 seconds. #RespectThePhilippinesBieber @UsherRaymondIV"

KatDeCastro: "Justin Bieber's IG posts on Manny Pacquiao - Others may think he's being funny. But for an entire nation, he's being rude."

In his succeeding post, Bieber also expressed strong disapproval on
the idea of Floyd Mayweather Jr. fighting Manny Pacquiao on the ring. "He has nothing to gain fighting Pacquiao, Floyd has never in his
professional career lost a fight and Pacquiao lost his last two fights. If Floyd wins, it's not that big of a deal 'cuz it would be
his third loss in a row, and if he loses he's gonna ruin his legacy either way there's no big win for Mayweather...Mayweather is boxing."

(It's now the exact opposite of what Bieber tweeted 2 years ago after Pacquiao defeated Antonio Margarito: "heard Manny did work tonight. I think it's time we got the Money Mayweather fight we have all been waiting for. #EPICBATTLE")

Yeah right, Justin Bieber supports Mayweather and his opinion above is
tolerable. But posting those memes making fun of Pacquiao are not, especially if it's done by someone like Bieber, a popular and influential celebrity in the world who has to set a good example to social media users.

Responding to comments from Pacquiao fans, and even his own fans who are starting to hate him now because of the memes, here's what he said: "If they were beliebers I know they wouldn't leave my side over an (sic) Boxing opinion I have."

Apparently, Bieber isn't afraid to lose his Pinoy fans.

It's also obvious that Justin Bieber is not a fan of Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao, but could it be true that he doesn't like
Filipinos that much?
