NBA Allows Anti-Cop Slogans on Jerseys, But doesn’t allow anything like ‘Free Hong Kong’ THIS IS CHINESE BUSINESS

Several would-be NBA customers took to social media to report that the NBA’s official store had curious criteria for what phrases it will allow to be put on official NBA merchandise.

“The NBA bans you, the fan, from putting #freehongkong on customized league jerseys even as they allow players to wear customized jerseys,” Clay Travis tweeted Monday.

Travis included a short video clip showing him trying to put “Free Hong Kong” into the NBA’s customization field on its website. But when he tried to type in “Free Hong Kong,” the site would not allow the phrase.

“We are unable to customize this item with the text you have entered,” the website says after the phrase is typed in. “Please try a different entry.”

As the Washington Free Beacon noted, a litany of hate-filled phrases were allowed, including:

*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
