Manny Pacquiao’s homophobia lost him a superstar fan this week. After calling gay people “worse than animals” and then doubling down on his repugnant claims following Nike’s decision to cut ties with him, the boxing champ is now feeling the heat from another legendary athlete. Earvin Magic Johnson slammed Pacquiao on Twitter for his comments and vowed he won’t “be watching another one of Manny Pacquiao’s fights.”

I won’t be watching another one of Manny Pacquiao’s fights.
Johnson “applauded” Nike’s termination of its contract with the boxer and noted, “fans of all walks of life including gay fans supported May/Pac fight putting $100M in his pocket… I guess to him their money is still green.”
