LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – The Pacquiao on Obama comments have prompted a banning from The Grove Los Angeles. Manny Pacquiao ’s comments on Obama were given last Friday inside the boxer’s residence at the Palazzo Complex in Los Angeles. Now, nearby The Grove tells news that Manny Pacquiao is permanently banned from the complex’s premises because of his comments.
Manny Pacquiao is no fan of Rick Caruso. On Tuesday evening, the official Twitter account for Caruso’s The Grove issued a statement denouncing the Pacquiao on Obama comments as pure “intolerance”. The statement to news read “Boxer Manny Pacquiao is not welcome @TheGroveLA. @TheGroveLA is a gathering place for all Angelenos, not a place for intolerance.”
Meantime, efforts are underway for a petition for Nike to withdraw sponsorship of the boxer.
Ironically, just weeks before Manny Pacquiao’s comment about Obama, Floyd Mayweather expressed to news his opinion that Pacquiao allegedly does nothing for Americas. Mayweather even claimed that Pacman allegedly just takes money from U.S. fights and brings it back home.“Well, why is this guy from another country coming over here and making money [and] taking it back to his country?”
Mayweather told news that, in his opinion, is not right to for the U.S. boxing industry to promote Pacman. Mayweather added “Once again, I’m feeding American citizens every day. All I ask is, give a little blood, give a little … That’s a crime?” Mayweather himself was once under fire for his own comments that he’ll force Pacquiao to “make a sushi roll and cook some rice.”
Pacquiao allegedly told the Examiner’s reporter Granville Ampong “God only expects man and woman to be together and to be legally married. It should not be of the same sex, so as to adulterate the alter of matrimony, like in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah.”
