Foot Locker on Pacquiao: “No plans to work with him”

In response to a number of tweets urging it to drop Manny Pacquiao as an endorser, sportswear retailer Foot Locker clarified its relationship with the Filipino boxer.

In a tweet Foot Locker wrote:

“Foot Locker worked with Manny Pacquiao briefly and we are no longer in contract with him and have no plans to work with him.”

Foot Locker had earlier emailed the same statement to Aries Dela Cruz, the New Jersey Fil-Am who launched an online petition calling on Nike to cut ties with Pacquiao. Dela Cruz’ petition came as netizens criticized Pacquiao for comparing people in same-sex marriages to animals in a TV interview.

On Wednesday, sportswear maker Nike announced it had officially fired Pacquiao as its endorser.

As for Foot Locker, Pacquiao’s two Foot Locker commercials in 2014 and 2015 went viral. They received praises for capturing the on-again-off-again intrigue that surrounded the Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. fight that finally occurred last May.

    Look people, Foot Locker and Nike, who in the hell your people think you all are? Look Manny is only human and has a brain of his own, look he was ask a question about “GAYS” and he answer it with the truth on what he thinks from his heart and brain. Look everyone is not same in thinking about “GAYS.” To me as of today, I will not buy anything from Foot Locker and Nike, because If I’m going to be push around on my thinking about “GAYS.” I don’t want nothing to do with Foot Locker and Nike company. Gays to me is sick in their head, if they don’t know what is right or wrong in having sex, brother you all is ANIMALS.” Manny Pacquiao your the “MAN.” that really believe in God and the”BIBLE.” And I say to of you that don’t believe in “GAYS” don’t buy any thing from Foot Locker and Nike their losers.

      Your grammar is so bad its turning me gay, I think its so bad that you don’t qualify to be called christian or hold a bible, its considered a sin. who the fuck cares if you don’t buy Nike or Footlocker stuff? I’m pretty sure you can only buy once every 5 years. The whole Philippines can stop buying and it won’t dent these companies earnings, a piss poor country, with stupid sense of morals and hypocrisy to boot. Im sick of filipinos, backwater way of thinking. no progress, ridden with so much crime and corruption, dude your cheap country has bigger concerns than gay marriage, China is about to own you, stupid fools. HIV is rampant on your country and people speak all high and mighty like you guys are so clean? yuck.

Don’t come here to my country and make fun of our English do you understand Filipino. Yes you a dumb Filipino trying to tell us Americans how t talk when you Filipinos can’t hardly talk English at all, that’s why you Filipinos have the junk jobs in my country of America.
