Magic Johnson Applauds Nike For Terminating Their Contract With Manny Pacquiao
Magic Johnson is applauding Nike for terminating their contract with boxer Manny Pacquiao following his offensive remarks regarding the gay community.
In case you missed it, Pac Man said homosexuals are worse than animals in a recent interview. After he received an overwhelming amount of backlash, he attempted to issue an apology, but the damage was already done.
Nike just did it and terminated their endorsement contract with Pacquaio.
“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.”
Magic, who is a proud father to his openly gay son, EJ Johnson, took to Twitter on Wednesday to applaud Nike for dumping Manny. He also said he’s done watching his fights!
