North Carolina's Governor, Pat McCrory, has slammed NBA for pulling their 2017 All-Stars game out of the state over anti-LGBT law, Hb2.
HB2, enacted in March, prevents transgender people from using the bathroom which correlates to the gender with which they associate.
NBA announced on Thursday (July 20) that they would be pulling their All-Stars game out of Charlotte next year in protest over HB2.
The Associated Press reports
that McCrory told Charlotte Radio that NBA's decision to pull out of the state was "total P.C B.S."
He said, "It's an insult to our city. It's an insult to our state. And I think it sets a dangerous precedent of the corporate sports and entertainment elite basically asking for a quid pro quo on legislation or else they'll deny their service."
The league has yet to announce their new host city for the event but has plans to hold the game in Charlotte by 2019 “provided there is an appropriate resolution to this matter.”
