Former NBA center Jason Collins, the first openly gay athlete in a major American sport, harshly criticized Manny Pacquiao after the boxer made homophobic remarks during an interview on a Filipino television station.
Pacquiao, who is running for re-election to the Filipino senate, said that people in same-sex relationships were “worse than animals.”
“It’s just common sense,” Pacquiao continued. “Have you seen any animal having male-to-male or female-to-female relations?”
Pacquiao has a history of making anti-gay comments.
