MANILA - After blasting Manny Pacquiao on Twitter for the boxer's remarks on same-sex marriage, comedian Vice Ganda on Tuesday said he will definitely not vote for the athlete-turned-politician who gunning for a senate seat in May's elections.

"I will personally not vote for Manny. Iboboto ko si Manny Pacquiao kung matatalo niya ang isang trese anyos na baklang kakilala ko sa debate," the comedian said on Tuesday.

While "It's Showtime" host said Pacquiao is entitled to his personal opinion, he believes the boxer used the wrong words when he called couples in same-sex marriages as worse than animals.

"Sobrang nakaka-dismaya lang dahil 'yung mga taong sinabihan niya ng masahol pa sa mga hayop eh naniniwala ako na lahat 'yon ay pumalakpak at nagdasal para sa kanya sa lahat ng mga laban niya," he said.

Aside from the comedian, singer Aiza Seguerra also protested Pacquiao's remarks, calling the boxing champ an "ignorant, bigoted hypocrite."

Pacquiao, however, stood by his remarks on same-sex marriage in a social media post on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Vice Ganda urged voters to be more discerning about who they will vote for in May. "Ang kailangan natin sa gobyerno, sa senado, ay mga taong malaki ang kaalaman sa politika, sa ekonomiya, at sa mga batas, hindi mga bulaang propeta," he said.
