Nike terminates Manny Pacquiao's endorsement deal over derogatory remarks about same-sex couples

Sports design and marketing giant, Nike, has parted ways with Manny Pacquiao over his recent remarks about same sex couples.

According to the company in a statement, 
"We find Manny Pacquiao's comments abhorrent. 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. Pacquiao, 37, had endorsed Nike for a little more than eight years.
Earlier in the week on a Filipino TV station, Manny had made the following statement

"Have you seen any animal having male-to-male or female-to-female relations?" Pacquiao said. "If you have male-to-male or female-to-female [relationships], then people are worse than animals."

However, Manny apologized on Twitter shortly after making the comment.

Pope Francis vs Donald Trump on Trump's Christianity

It all started when Pope Francis waded into American politics saying that Donald Trump “is not Christian” because of the harshness of his campaign promises to deport more immigrants and force Mexico to pay for a wall along the border.

“A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian,” Francis said when a reporter asked him about Mr. Trump on the papal airliner as he returned to Rome after his six-day visit to Mexico.

Trust Donald Trump to respond immediately. While at a campaign rally in Kiawah Island, S.C. he said: “For a religious leader to question a person’s faith is disgraceful.”

“No leader, especially a religious leader, has the right to question another man’s religion or faith,” he told a packed room at a golf course resort. Trump then accused the Mexican government of “using the pope as a pawn”.
