Hashtag #boycottnike Trending As Pacquiao’s Supporters Come To Boxer’s Defense by olaskul(m): 9:44am On Feb 20, 2016
*Calls to boycott Nike growing louder on social media
*Pacquiao’s supporters urging peers to boycott sport company for dropping the boxer

Hitting back at Nike for dropping its clothing sponsorship with Manny Pacquiao, supporters of the embattled boxer are urging their peers to boycott the sports company.

On social media, the hashtag #Boycott Nike can be seen trending among Facebook and Twitter users who are supporting Pacquiao and his opposition to same-sex marriage.

On change.org, a petition was also started by a Pacquiao supporter, someone called “Truth Seeker”, to boycott Nike.

“If the brand shows no bias to any race, religion or gender, they should not have dropped Manny Pacquiao as their endorser,” read the petition. “Manny is an accomplished athlete. He is a great example of a principled individual who stands firm to what he believes in.”

The petition also came with a picture containing a quote from renowned author and speaker Dr. Steve Maraboli: “Don’t worry about the haters. They are just angry because the truth you speak contradicts the lie they live.”

Aside from Nike, one other target of a boycott is comedian Vice Ganda who distinguished himself as one of Pacquiao’s most outspoken critics since the controversy broke out.

On his social media feeds, Vice described Pacquiao as a false prophet and said the boxer should hope he won’t meet him and the rest of the LGBT community in hell.

Other than Vice, celebrity TV host Boy Abunda has also earned the ire of Pacquiao’s supporters for blasting the latter on his show; with one saying he should change his first name to “Girl” since he’s fond of acting like one.
