Actor Dave Bautista got serious about covering up his Manny Pacquiao logo team tattoo.

In a TikTok video posted by GQ, Dave shared one of his tattoo cover-ups.

“It used to be a team logo,” Dave said in a clip shared to TikTok. “I was part of a team of a person I considered a friend and someone I really looked up to. And then, he later came out publicly with some anti-gay statements and turned out to be an extreme homophobe,” he added.

The 53-year-old former professional wrestler became an ally of the LGBT community when his mother came out as lesbian.

“So, I had a huge issue with it. It’s a personal issue with me. My mom’s a lesbian. And I just could no longer call him a friend. So, I had it covered up with this,” Bautista added, displaying the updated ink of a woman with a sugar skull face painting.

During his interview with TV5 in 2016, the politician-boxer faced a lot of backlash after making harsh comments about gay people.

“It’s common sense. The animals are better. They know how to distinguish male from female,” Pacquiao added. “If we approve [of] male on male, female on female, then man is worse than animals.”

Although he apologized for his statement in the end, Pacquiao still believes that same-sex marriage is forbidden. — Carissa Alcantara
