VIDEO: Uncut version of Manny Pacquiao’s controversial interview emerges online

MANILA, Philippines - A video of the supposed uncut version of boxing icon and Senatorial aspirant Manny Pacquiao’s controversial interview with Bilang Pilipino has recently emerged online.

Manny Pacquiao Bilang Pilipino

On Thursday, February 18, netizen Rupert James Garcia uploaded the 1-minute video clip on his Facebook page. The clip quickly captured the attention of Facebook users with over 14,000 shares and almost 250,000 views as of this writing.

In the video clip, the Sarangani representative explained his stand on same-sex marriage in the Philippines. The eight-time world boxing champion, who is against homosexual unions, compared members of the same-sex relationships to animals. His disputable statement caused outrage in the gay community and severed his business relationship with sports giant Nike.

However, the uncut version of Pacquiao’s revealed something that may possibly change the view of people about the issue.

Towards the end of the video, the 37-year-old professional boxer clarified that he is not condemning gay people.

“Pero I am not condemning them. Yung marriage lang yung committing sin against God,” he said.

(But I am not condemning them, just marriage which is a sin against God.)

Watch the viral video.
Sana before people bashed Mr. Manny Pacquiao about his stand on "Same Sex Marriage". Hinanap naman sana ng mga tao...

Several netizens commented that Pacquiao was treated unfairly by the media since his entire interview was not released. Many believe that if the whole interview was released earlier, Pacquiao’s statement would have elicited a different reaction.
