Nike Canned Pacquiao For Anti-Gay Comments

Despite an apology for saying animals were better than people in same-sex relationships, Nike dumped Manny Pacquiao.  Which sucks for Manny because the only reason he apologized was to keep his sponsors happy, via ESPN:

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

Based on Pacquiao's comments, a spokesman confirmed that he is no longer on the company's endorsement roster.
This is why you don't apologize for any of your comments unless you have a guarantee that you're not going to get dumped.  All because he couldn't keep his anti-gay views to himself.

When are these dudes with these endorsement deals going to realize that nobody wants to hear what they have to say.  Well until they say something they don't agree with.  Then bye bye extra money.
