The senatorial aspirant said these comments while being interviewed by TV5 and said, “Mas mabuti pa yung hayop, marunong kumilala kung lalaki-lalaki o babae-babae. Kung lalaki sa lalaki o babae sa babae, e mas masahol pa sa hayop ang tao.”

But Paquiao did said that he is not condemning the members of the LGBTQ but he only said his view on same-sex marriage.

Perez Hilton, a very popular celebrity blogger and recently a Miss Universe judge, which Philippines own Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach won the crown and which Hilton favored all throughout the pageant, describe Pacquiao’s comments as “horrific and damaging, to say the least.”

Professor Danton Remoto, founder of Ladlad Party List and professor at the Ateneo University said “His anti-LGBT statement betray a shallow understanding of the issues that are important to us. Ladlad supports the rights of people to have consensual, same-sex relationships that lead to domestic partnerships or even to same-sex marriage. This is found in the equal-rights provisions of the Constitution, that mandates a level playing field for everybody, whether in the realm of economics or of love.” He added: “Manny, tama na ang kabobohan.”

Remoto even urged the public to not vote for Pacquiao in the coming May Presidential election and never vote for a candidate that is prejudice and discriminate the minority.

The most popular entertainer to date in the Philippines belongs to the LGBTQ side, Vice Ganda posted in the social media Twitter:


 Ang pagpatol sa parehong kasarian ay masahol pa sa hayup? E ang pakikiapid habang ika’y may asawa anung kababuyan ito? Pakisagot Manny!

Pacquiao still has to answer these messages against his comments and will it affect his senatorial bid in May?
