Manny Pacquiao has taken a lot of heat for his comments about gay marriage, saying there shouldn't be any although he doesn't have anything against homosexuality.

With the comments, he got himself banned from the Los Angeles Mall.

"I'm not against gay people," Pacquiao said in a statement. "I have a relative who is also gay. We can't help it if they were born that way. What I'm critical of are actions that violate the word of God. I only gave out my opinion that same-sex marriage is against the law of God."

Floyd Mayweather recently weighed in himself, as the boxer says he is in support for it, as he tweeted: 

Pacquiao is currently training for his upcoming fight against Timothy Bradley. Meanwhile, Mayweather will soon serve his prison sentence after his big victory over Miguel Cotto.
