Former boxing champ, Manny Pacquiao, stuck his foot in his mouth the other day when he claimed that gays who partook in same sex marriage were "worse than animals."

Pacquiao has come under fire from many, especially in the gay and lesbian communities. The latest to come out against the fighter is former UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey. She disagreed with the boxer, stating that nowhere in the bible does it say "thou shall not be gay."

"I understand that a lot of people use religion as a reason to be against gay people, but there was no ‘Thou shall not be gay,' you know? God never said that."

Rousey went on to support the current Pope, Pope Francis:

"I really think that our Pope right now now is boss. He was saying something the other day that religion should be all-encompassing and should be about loving everyone. And I think sometimes people take the wrong message."

In standard celebrity fashion, Pacquio quickly apologized for his controversial comments, but that doesn't mean his bank account won't suffer. Nike quickly dropped the fighter from his sponsorship, which could cost him in the millions.

Not that he won't make a little bit of that back when he squares off against Timothy Bradley for a third tim on April 9, 2016 in Las Vegas. It's expected to be the boxing champ's last fight.
