The ACC boycotted North Carolina after the passing of H.B. 2. And they were in good company– many companies and public figures boycotted the state over the infamous ‘Bathroom Bill.’
The ‘Boycotts Bill’, named H.B. 728, was primarily sponsored by Republican representatives Jeff Collins, Mark Brody, Chris Millis, and Bert Jones.
Speaking to WFMY, representative Mark Brody said “We’re taking this seriously and we’re not going to sit back idly and let them do whatever they want to North Carolina.”
