Nike has ended their relationship with Manny Pacquiao after his "homosexuals are worse than animals" comment, according to BBC Boxing.

Although the six-weight world champion apologized, it still didn't fly well with Nike.

"We find Manny Pacquiao's comments abhorrent," said a Nike 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."

The company " no longer (has) a relationship with Manny Pacquiao."
