Manny Pacquaio’s fall from grace was likely a ticking time bomb that nobody wanted to notice until it was a bit late. The hints and beliefs are there behind his political and religious background, but it took Pacquiao speaking out to cause major trouble. Nike dropped the boxer not long after his initial statement and apology, and it doesn’t seem like people are finished criticizing Pacquiao yet.
Take Dave Bautista for example, who TMZ caught up with in their typical fashion and wanted to get his take on Pacquiao’s comments. The Guardians of the Galaxy star and former WWE champion did not hold back, calling Pacquaio a “f*cking idiot” and explaining why Pacquiao’s statement offended him:
“My mom happens to be a lesbian so I don’t f**king take that sh*t. I dont think it’s funny.”
“If anyone called my mother an animal i’d stick my foot in his ass.”
