People are outraged over Manny Pacquiao's latest comments on homosexuality

Tyson Fury provoked a fierce backlash last year after making comments comparing paedophiles to homosexuals, but he's not the only boxer to land himself in trouble over allegations of homophobia.

Fury's fellow boxer Manny Pacquiao hasn't done himself any favours with his latest comments, which have come in for a lot of criticism.

In an interview with TV5 as part of his senate campaign, the boxer-turned-politician said "It's common sense. Do you see animals mating with the same sex? Animals are better because they can distinguish male from female."

He went on to say "If men mate with men and women mate with women they are worse than animals."

Needless to say, the archaic attitude towards homosexuality has seen him face a backlash on Twitter.
