All-Star 2017 was supposed to be Charlotte’s moment. It was supposed to be an opportunity for the city, the Hornets and owner Michael Jordan to shine on a national stage. Instead, the event was moved to New Orleans due to the passing of the discriminatory House Bill 2. Former Governor Pat McCrory was one of the bill’s strongest advocates and the person who signed it into to law, so he deservedly received a ton of slander during this weekend’s All-Star Saturday Night festivities.
Here’s a taste of what people had to say:
All Star Weekend in Charlotte would of been amazing! Thanks @PatMcCroryNC for not caring about money coming into this great state!

Don't blame NOLA for that terrible All-Star Weekend. They didn't have as much time as we had to prepare as we would have. Blame Pat the puss
