Bradley Whitford slams NBA over lack of action in China-Hong Kong unrestWritten by Super User
Bradley Whitford is holding the NBA accountable amid the continuing civil unrest in Hong Kong. Last fall, Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey expressed support for protesters in Hong Kong who were demonstrating opposition to a proposed law that could see citizens extradited to mainland China despite maintaining a degree of autonomy from the country at large. The tweet caught backlash from China, where basketball is very popular, and various sponsors, leagues, partners and streaming services cut ties with the Rockets and the NBA over the message.
