Nike Joins Big Companies in Fight Against Transgender Bathroom Bill

The brass at Nike aren’t about to lose money, shares of stock or talented employees over North Carolina’s controversial transgender bathroom bill.

According to Yahoo Sports, Nike is one of 68 companies who have filed a brief requesting that North Carolina’s controversial House Bill 2 be blocked.

The law limits the use of bathrooms by transgender people, requiring them to use a restroom that match with their sex rather than the gender they identify with.

“H.B. 2 and the naked, invidious discrimination it condones is already damaging [companies’] ability to recruit and retain a diverse workforce and is imposing a substantial disincentive to investment and commerce in the state, directly impacting their bottom line,” the brief reads.

Nike has already discussed boycotting the 2017 NBA All-Star in Charlotte, N.C., over the bill, although the brand isn’t an official sponsor of the event.

Nike terminated the contract Manny Pacquiao over his homophobic comments earlier this year.
