title : Magic Johnson will Boycott Manny Pacquiao Boxing After Same-Sex Marriage 'Animal' Remarks
summary : "I won't be watching another one of Manny Pacquiao's fights," Magic Earvin Johnson wrote on Twitter Wednesday. His drop of support is stilling getting attention, due to his son, E.J. Johnson being publicly gay and due to fans reminding the basketball star he hasn't exactly had a clean slate himself in life. Johnson responded to the boxer's comments last week comparing gay marriage to animals. Pacquiao, who said he stands by his Biblical-based "Law of God" perspective, lost the backing of Nike in the furor over his controversial LGBT comments. Pacquiao eventually issued an apology, saying he was "humbling himself before others and God" regarding his mistake.
