Man Hold Up!  —  Boxer Manny Pacquiao’s recent anti-gay comments are costing him money.  Sporting apparel giant Nike is terminating its contract with Pacquiao and calls his comments “abhorrent.”  The company says it “strongly opposes discrimination of any kind and has a long history of supporting and standing up for the rights of the LGBT community.”  Pacquiao said gay people are “worse than animals.”  The boxer had a relationship with Nike dating back to 2006.
