Remember when Manny Pacquiao fought Floyd Mayweather? At first, it was easy to root against Mayweather, as he has a history with domestic violence. Then we found out Pacquiao is someone who hates gay people, and suddenly we were forced to choose between two piles of feces.
Well, Pacquiao’s most recent anti-gay comments have gotten him banned from a Los Angeles shopping center for a second time.
Pacquiao was originally banned from The Grove in 2012, but had his shopping privileges reinstated when ownership believed he was misquoted. After Pacquiao said last month that gays are worse than animals, The Grove banned him yet again, according to TMZ Sports.
“These are statements of hatred,” Grove owner Rick Caruso tells us … “A lot of people from the gay community come to The Grove and they have a right not to feel uncomfortable.”
“Manny Pacquiao is no longer welcome.”
Banning a boxer from purchasing consumer products may not seem like a watershed moment in the civil rights movement, but it’s not insignificant either. Telling a multi-millionaire with the ability to break your face with one punch takes some semblance of guts.
