Manny Pacquiao to Gay Community: "I Apologize"

"Extra" host Mario Lopez spoke with professional boxer Manny Pacquiao to clarify his recent comments about same-sex marriage.

"I want to clarify that I didn't say I wanted all gays put to death," explained Pacquiao. "The reporter asked me a question. He said, 'Obama is in favor of legalizing gay marriage and what's your opinion?' He asked me about my opinion and I told him my opinion that that I don't agree, and I'm against same sex marriage, but I didn't say that I'm condemning the gays because, you know, I have relatives. I have gay relatives and friends. That’s all I said to the reporter."
