Released after Pacquiao jibe

25 Feb, 2015

After making fun of Pacquiao’s basketball ability, Orton is released by Purefoods Star Hotshots. He is also fined $5,650.

[Pacquiao playing] is a joke… Professional boxer? Yeah. Congressman? All right. But professional basketball player? Seriously? It’s a joke.

Rene Pardo of the Hotshots:

Everyone is angry at him. It is like he went to the United States and insulted the name of Martin Luther King.

PBA commissioner Chito Salud:

This office disapproves of and frowns upon the cavalier manner in which Mr. Orton issued his comments and the unwarranted antics and liberties he has taken with the league and a fellow player. This insulting behavior will never be condoned by the league.
