Former WWE Star Calls Manny Pacquiao 'F***ing Idiot' For Anti-Gay Rhetoric

"If anyone called my mother an animal, I'd stick my foot in his ass."

Former WWE star and current actor Dave Bautista took huge exception to Manny Pacquiao calling gay people "worse than animals" less than a week ago. 

In a video posted by TMZ on Saturday, Bautista expressed that he was deeply angered by the boxer's comments. 

"My opinion on that is he's a f***ing idiot," Bautista said as he looked straight into the camera.

The 47-year-old also explained why Pacquiao's anti-gay rhetoric was especially personal to him.

"My mom happens to be a lesbian so I don't f***ing take that sh*t. I don't think it's funny," Bautista said. "Put it like this, if anyone called my mother an animal, I'd stick my foot in his ass."

The actor, like Pacquiao, is of Filipino descent, and actually walked alongside the boxer before a 2009 match against Ricky Hatton.
