“We should let people live their lives the way they want to live their lives. To each his own. I stand behind President Obama & support gay marriage. I’m an American citizen & I believe people should live their life the way they want.”
He also posted his message to his official Twitter account.
On Tuesday, Pacquiao drew flak from netizens and celebrities for his comment that people in same-sex relations are “worse than animals.”
He has apologized for hurting members of the LGBT community.
“I’m sorry for hurting people by comparing homosexuals to animals. Please forgive me for those I’ve hurt. I still stand on my belief that I’m against same-sex marriage because of what the Bible says, but I’m not condemning LGBT. I love you all with the love of the Lord. God Bless you all and I’m praying for you,” said Pacquiao.
