Nike terminated its endorsement contract with Manny Pacquiao after the Filipino boxer made derogatory remarks toward

Manny Pacquiao has faced heavy public backlash after making controversial comments about same-sex marriage, saying that legalizing it would "makes us worse than animals." That resulted in an apology from the boxing great, although he's still against same-sex marriage.

Pacquiao's beliefs on gay marriage and gay people in general are not new. In 2012 he had to clarify that he's not against gays, but is against gay marriage. This time, however, it looks like it may cost him his deal with Nike. A report from TMZ notes that Nike is leaning towards ending their sponsorship agreement with Pacquiao after 10 years.

Nike terminated its endorsement contract with Manny Pacquiao on Wednesday after the Filipino boxer made derogatory remarks toward same-sex couples.

"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.

Pacquiao has endorsed Nike for a little more than 8 years

"Have you seen any animal having male-to-male or female-to-female relations?" Pacquiao said on a Filipino television station earlier this week. "If you have male-to-male or female-to-female [relationships], then people are worse than animals."

Pacquiao apologized on Twitter within hours

"I'm sorry for hurting people by comparing homosexuals to animals," Pacquiao tweeted. "Please forgive me for those I hurt. God bless!"

In the tweet, Pacquiao had a video message in Filipino wearing a Nike shirt with the special logo the company has for him.
