On Thursday, the National Basketball Association (NBA) announced it will be holding preseason games in Abu Dhabi, a city in the United Arab Emirates, where being gay is entirely illegal, via OutKick.

Following the news, sports journalist and OutKick host Clay Travis shared some of his thoughts on the issue:

“The NBA refused to let Charlotte host the All-Star Game over a transgender bathroom bill. But NBA is perfectly willing to play games in the United Arab Emirates where homosexuality is punishable by death. The hypocrisy is staggering.”
