CONGRESSMAN PITTENGER’S STATEMENT ON REPORTS OF NBA MOVING ALL-STAR GAME

CHARLOTTE – Congressman Robert Pittenger (NC-09) had this reaction to reports the NBA will move the 2017 All-Star Game out of Charlotte due to North Carolina’s bathroom privacy law:

“Last week, I met with constituents from China who outlined the Chinese government practice of forcefully harvesting vital organs as part of their oppression of religious minorities.  Meanwhile, the NBA will start selling tickets for preseason games in China next week.  Is the NBA implying China’s abhorrent violation of basic human rights is acceptable, but North Carolina saying men shouldn’t use the girls’ locker room is a bridge too far?  What is the NBA’s true priority?  The unmistakable hypocrisy is clear to me.  You be your own judge.”
