Basketball icon and former Chicago Bull Michael Jordan has spoken out against North Carolina's anti-LGBT law House Bill 2, Yahoo! News reported.
Signed into law March 23 by North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory, House Bill 2, among other things, bans transgender individuals from using the bathroom that corresponds with their gender identity and prevents local municipalities from instituting LGBT-related protective measures in their communities.
"As my organization has stated previously, the Charlotte Hornets and Hornets Sports & Entertainment are opposed to discrimination in any form, and we have always sought to provide an inclusive environment," Jordan said in a statement to the Charlotte Observer in response to an interview request regarding HB2.
