It can be noted that the 37-year-old senator-boxer provoked a bomb of issue last February when he made a statement saying “gays are worse than animals.”

Despite his realization he still stood firm on his belief anchored on the Bible.

“Yes, but I'm not changing my position. It's what the Bible says. But my mistake is just comparing them to animals. I'm just human. Nobody's perfect,” Pacquiao said in an interview with TMZ.


His controversial remark against the LGBT community and same-sex union caused him to lose his nearly 8-year sponsorship deal with sports apparel Nike as well as other endorsements.

He was also reported banned from entering The Grove, a renowned shopping mall in Los Angeles, California, USA.

However, amid all the issues against him, the “Pambansang Kamao (National fist)” still won a slot in the May 2016 elections with 16,050,546 votes.

This November, Pacquiao will be stepping into the ring again to challenge Jessie Vargas for the WBO welterweight championship. AJRSP
