The athlete-turned-politician received flak after he aired his views against same sex marriage in an interview posted on the Bilang Pilipino Facebook page on Monday.

"Common sense lang. Makakita ka ba ng any animals na lalaki sa lalaki o babae sa babae?" Pacquiao said.

He added, "Mabuti pa ang hayop, marunong kumilala kung lalaki lalaki, babae babae. O di ba? Ngayon, kung lalaki sa lalaki o babae sa babae, mas masahol pa sa hayop ang tao."

In a series of tweets on Tuesday, Vice, an openly gay comedian, defended the LGBT community and said "we will pray for Manny Pacquiao."

He went on to reference Manny having the worst attendance record in Congress during his term as Sarangani represenative.

"Ang kailangan sa Senado ay mga bihasa sa pulitika, sa batas, sa ekonomiya. Hindi mga bulaang propeta," Vice said.

The comedian added: "Manny, di ka namin mapipigil kung gusto mong husgahan ang mga bakla sa mundo. Siguraduhin mo lang na di ka namin makakasalubong sa impyerno."

Vice isn't the first celebrity to criticize Manny for his anti-LGBT sentiments.
