“The Fighter” Boxer Pulls Support From Scott Brown Over Marriage Equality

Micky Ward is best known as the boxer who inspired the Oscar-nominated film The Fighter. But the pugilist delivered a right hook for equality this week when he pulled his support for Republican Sen. Scott Brown of Massachusetts, claiming he didn’t agree with the politician’s stances onlabor  unions and same-sex marriage.

“I can’t support Scott Brown. I just can’t do it,” Ward told The Sun of Lowell after agreeing to back Brown, who is up against progressive Democrat Elizabeth Warren. “I found out Scott is anti-union and I’m a Teamster guy. I found out he’s also against gay marriage, and I say, if you love someone, you should have the same rights no matter who you are.”

Oh what we wouldn’t give to see Ward wipe the floor with Manny Pacquiao.

      Now, if we can just get those idiot fag boys who voted for Brown in the first place because “he’s h-a-w-t, ya know” to grow some man balls and support dignity.

      Maybe the fact that he’s an advocate should be more prominent in the headline. It could be read either way right now.
