Multiple sources tell TMZ Sports … Nike is preparing to cut ties with boxing superstar Manny Pacquiao after his latest round of anti-gay comments.
The two sides have had a relationship since at least 2006 — but we’re told Nike is particularly disturbed after Pacquiao said gay people are “worse than animals” … and intend to drop the boxer for good.
We’re told the move is not official yet — but there have been multiple discussions and we’re told it appears to be heading in that direction.
We reached out to Manny’s rep — so far, no comment.
By the way, it appears Nike has removed all traces of Manny from its online store.
