AP – Manny Pacquiao’s Instagram account no longer has a post that quoted a Bible passage calling for homosexuals to be put to death.

“USA Today” reports that Pacquiao posted the passage hours after he lost his Nike sponsorship.  Pacquiao has been in hot water since he remarked on a TV interview on Monday that gay people are worse than animals.

Thousands of people have signed a petition calling for corporations to drop the boxing champ.
