TMZ caught up with the "Guardians of the Galaxy" star, a fellow Filipino, in Los Angeles and Bautista calmly expressed his disgust with Pacquiao’s recent comments — especially considering the actor’s mother is gay.
"My opinion on that is that he’s a f—ing idiot. My mom happens to be a lesbian, so I don’t f—ing take that s–t. I don’t think it’s funny. "If anyone called my mother an animal, I’d stick a foot in his ass. That’s his opinion, but I don’t appreciate it."
"You can’t go back on that one, there’s no coming back from that. "I still look up to him as a fighter. It’s just his personal views, you know, they’re just s–t. I don’t know where he’s even coming up with this garbage. It makes me respect him a lot less."

Add Bautista to the list of celebrities who have come down hard against Pacquiao, including Nike (one of his sponsors), Bob Arum (his agent), Jason Collins (the NBA’s first openly gay player) and Magic Johnson (basketball Hall of Famer, whose son is gay).
