After Nike, Bill Clinton Drops Manny Pacquiao

imageCHAPPAQUA, New York (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – Just days after Nike severed its relationship with Filipino champion boxer Manny Pacquiao for his disparaging comments comparing gay men and lesbians to (worse than) animals, former President Bill Clinton has distanced himself from the Filipino congressman who is running for a Senate seat.

The two are known to have a very cordial relationship, but all that is coming to an end.

Clinton said he cannot continue his friendship with Pacquiao because his views on homosexuality and same-sex marriage are contrary to Hillary’s position on the issue.

“Hillary and I cannot jeopardize her election as the next president of the U.S. by continuing our relationship with Pacquiao.

“I wish him the best in his quest to become a Philippine senator, but I have to withdraw my support for him and his senatorial campaign,” Clinton said.
