Outdoor mall and Extra filming location The Grove has barred entrance to boxer Manny Pacquiao, reports LA Now. Just what did he do to deserve such cruel treatment? The story goes that Grove owner Rick Caruso read about an interview Pacquiao did with the Examiner on LA Weekly, where he was quoted as saying that gay men "must be put to death." Turns out Pacquaio said no such thing, though he does not believe in gay marriage. The LA Weekly article has been updated but there's no word from The Grove about whether or not they'll revoke the ban. [LA Now]
