WWE wrestling superstar and cast member of Marvel’s Galaxy of the Guardians Dave Bautista is pissed off at anti-gay boxer Manny Pacquiao for calling gays and lesbians “animals”. You see Bautista’s mother just happens to be a lesbian.
“So my opinion on that is he’s a fucking idiot. My mom happens to be a lesbian so I don’t fucking take that shit. I don’t think it’s funny. If anyone called my mother an animal I’d stick my foot in his ass….That’s his opinion, but I’m saying I don’t appreciate it.”
Nike dumped Pacquiao on Wednesday after the boxer-turned-politician sort of apologized for his remarks but less than 24 hours later Pacquiao posted a message to Instagram citing a verse from Leviticus which calls for men who have sex with men to be put to death.
“What I am saying is right. I mean I am just stating the truth, what the Bible says…I’m happy. I’m always happy because God is with me.”
The statement caused swift reaction from the sports world, with Magic Johnson vowing to never watch a Pacquiao fight again.
“I applaud Nike for terminating Manny Pacquiao’s contract after his derogatory statements that gay people are worse than animals. 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. I won’t be watching another.
While Pacquiao’s Nike contract has been terminate he is still slated for a major fight at the end of April which many are calling upon to be cancelled.

The Stamford-based WWE empire received about $37 million in state tax credits for staging and recording its wrestling spectacles dating back to July of 2009, state officials reported Friday.
The state Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD), in response to a request by Hearst Connecticut Newspapers, indicated that the WWE has received 20 separate tax credits totaling $36.7 million.
Three of the 20 credits, awarded as part of state legislation aimed at fostering film, TV and digital production in the state, totaled more than $5 million each in 2010, 2011 and 2012, according to a summary released under the state’s Freedom of Information Act.
Jim Watson, spokesman for the DECD, said Friday that the credits were granted, without strings, based on how much money the WWE had spent in Connecticut on producing its events.
“There are no job creation or retention requirements for them to earn the credits,” Watson said. “The credits are awarded based on qualified expenditures made in the state.”

World Wrestling Federation’s muscled meathead John Cena who was recently was busted for making anti-gay taunts in the ring, took to Twitter on Sunday and posted a “Guys with IPhones” type nearly naked picture of himself flaunting his well chisled body.
Perhaps this is part of his new gay sensitivity program.
Cena who once wrote a rap song trashing Dwayne (The Rock) Johnson which went: “You left us high and dry to play a fairy with a tooth?” and “He wore lipstick in Get Shorty, and rocked a skirt for The Game Plan. Just don’t go racing to Witch Mountain, Rock, cause your mountain is Brokeback.” and also taunted another wrestler MTV reality show alumn “the Miz” by saying“The Miz” “Do you really want to look back years from now and realize you shared your legacy with another man?!” is now working with the WWE and GLAAD to ensure that WWE fans know that WWE is against bullying or discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.
Maybe this is Cena’s way of “reaching out” to his gay fans.
Cena removed the nearly naked photo after WWE executives told him it could hurt his chances for a major movie career
