Manny just got a pink slip from Nike, which he has worked with since at least 2006, after making anti-gay comments, according to TMZ! Manny said gay people are "worse than animals!" Manny went all in, saying "It's common sense. Will you see any animals where male is to male and female is to female? The animals are better. They know how to distinguish male from female. If we approve [of] male on male, female on female, then man is worse than animals."
