Manny Pacquiao is getting one less paycheck. Nike has terminated its endorsement contract with the boxer after he made derogatory remarks about same-sex couples. Pacquiao’s remarks were made to a Filipino television station earlier this week. He stated:

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

Nike said 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.

Pacquiao apologized on Twitter.
