Vice Ganda, Aiza Seguerra and other celebs react on Manny Pacquiao’s same-sex marriage comment
021616-lgbt.jpgSarangani Representative and World Boxing Champion Manny Pacquiao’s statement regarding same-sex marriage drew flak online as he compared homosexuals to animals. The 30-second video of Manny was uploaded in the Bilang Pilipino’s Facebook page.

“Common sense lang, makakita ka ba ng any animals na lalaki sa lalaki o babae sa babae? Mas mabuti pa ‘yung hayop marunong kumilala kung lalaki o lalaki, babae babae o ‘di ba? Ngayon kung lalaki sa lalaki o babae sa babae eh mas masahol sa hayop ang tao,” the boxer commented on the topic of same-sex marriage.

Singer Aiza Seguerra, who is married to actress Liza Diño was angered by Manny’s statement and shared her thoughts on Instagram. In a photo, Aiza wrote, “I am so fuckin' mad I don't know what to say. You might've done our country proud but with your statement, you just showed the whole country why we shouldn't vote for you. And yes, I think you are an ignorant, bigoted hypocrite. You made me lose all respect that I had for you, Mr. Pacquiao.” 

Aiza captioned the post with, “Ang kailangan ng bansang ito ay mga taong nag-iisip. Utang na loob, kilalanin ninyo ang iboboto ninyo.”


Aside from Aiza, comedian John “Sweet” Lapus also reacted on his social media accounts and told his followers to not vote for Manny.


“I beg you my dear fellow Filipinos and of course my fellow LGBT family. Pls dont vote Manny Pacquio. Hayop ang tingin nya sa atin. Ty,” Sweet posted.
