Former WWE Champion blasts Manny Pacquiao and calls him an idiot
The boxing legend's comments didn't go down too well with the offended WWE star.
– The Animal as we all know him, Batista has had an enviable career in the WWE which has smoothly transitioned to Hollywood and has seen him deliver various blockbuster movies such as James Bond, Spectre and Guardians of the Galaxy.
Pacquiao, who is an acclaimed boxer is running for a governmental position in the Philippines which is the home country of Batista. Manny, during one of the debates, said that gay marriages should be punished and added that being gay was worse than being an animal.
Batista, while talking to TMZ, said that he still respects Pacquiao as a fighter for his talent, but has lost all the respect for him as a person for his opinions. He revealed that his mother is gay and called Pacquiao a f*****g idiot for saying such things.
He also said that there is no route left to come back after making such comments and asked Manny to take his opinions and shove it. The 8-time boxing champion has been garnering a lot of negative criticism for his comments and Batista is the latest to join the bandwagon.
