CHARLOTTE, NC (Charlotte Observer) — N.C. Gov. Pat McCrory said the NBA’s decision to move its 2017 All-Star game from Charlotte is “total P.C. (politically correct) BS.”
“I’m disappointed,” McCrory said while speaking on WFAE’s Charlotte Talks radio program Friday morning. “I strongly disagree with their decision. To put it bluntly it’s total P.C. BS. It’s an insult to our city and an insult to our state.”
The NBA said it was moving the game because of House Bill 2. HB2 nullified Charlotte’s expanded nondiscrimination ordinance that extended legal protection for gay, lesbian and transgender individuals. It also requires transgender people to use the bathroom that corresponds with the gender on their birth certificate in government buildings.
