NBA Store Allows ‘Defund Police,’ ‘Beware of Jews’ on Custom Jerseys, But Not ‘Free Hong Kong’

By Andrew Stiles, Free Beacon, July 13, 2020:

n keeping with league policy on political statements, the official online store of the NBA does not permit fans to order a custom jersey with the phrase “Free Hong Kong” printed on the back.

“Free Hong Kong” is one of the many phrases banned under the NBA’s new jersey policy, which allows players to display certain political messages such as “Black Lives Matter,” but prohibits messages critical of the Chinese regime.

Typing “Free Hong Kong” into the text box on the NBA store’s custom jersey page returns the following message: “We are unable to customize this item with the text you have entered. Please try a different entry.”

Here are some of the phrases that don’t receive such a warning:

  • F—K HONG KONG
  • DEFUND POLICE
  • ABOLISH COPS
  • BEWARE OF JEWS
  • SNEAKY JEWS
  • BAN GYPSIES
  • XI FOR LIFE
  • CANCEL ISRAEL
  • NINE 11 HOAX
  • END TAIWAN
  • ENSLAVE TIBET
  • TRUMP HAS AIDS
  • PENCE IS GAY
  • UYGHURS LIE

 

A number of NBA players, including superstar LeBron James, have rallied around ESPN reporter Adrian Wojnarowski, who was recently suspended from the network after writing “F—k you” in response to a press release from Sen. Josh Hawley (R., Mo.). The press release was regarding a letter Hawley had written to NBA commissioner Adam Silver questioning the league’s new jersey policy and its censorship of messages critical of China.
