North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory has called the NBA's decision to move next year's All-Star Game from Charlotte over a state law that targets the LGBT community “PC BS.”

The NBA cited House Bill 2 in announcing its decision on Thursday.

“While we recognize that the NBA cannot choose the law in every city, state and county in which we do business, we do not believe we can successfully host our All-Star festivities in Charlotte in the climate created by HB2,” the league said.

“I'm calling it out as it is,” McCrory told reporters on Friday, saying that he feared that other organizations would follow the NBA's lead. “”We've got to call this as it is, and it is PC BS. It has nothing to do with discrimination, because if it had to do with discrimination, the NBA would be canceling their games in China right now, and the NBA would not be playing in over 20 states that have the exact same laws that we have.”

To be certain, North Carolina's House Bill 2 is the first in the nation to restrict transgender bathroom use. It also prohibits local municipalities from enacting LGBT protections.

“I don't think this has anything to do with the bill that was passed,” McCrory added. “I think it has to do with a very well-coordinated political campaign that [was] brought from outside North Carolina, that was brought into Charlotte.”

In an earlier statement, McCrory blamed presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton for the NBA's decision.
