NBA Custom Jersey Order Allows ‘Burn Jews’ and ‘Kill Cops’ but Not ‘Free Hong Kong’

Unbelievable.

The NBA’s subservience toward the communist regime in China has been on display for months, but their latest folly in the realm of appeasing the authoritarian government Beijing jumps the shark.

Some months ago, in the time before COVID, China implemented a heavy boycott of the NBA after a team’s owner tweeted his support for the pro-democracy demonstrations in Hong Kong.  The league responded quickly, given the economic might of the Chinese state and, the next thing you know, LeBron James was out in front of the cameras brown-nosing Xi Jinping.

Now, with the NBA set to allow players to wear social justice-themed statements on their jerseys during whatever this 2020 season is going to look like, the league thought that they’d also let the fans get in on the action and create their own custom wear-ephenalia.

One user who attempted to create a jersey with a pro-democracy slogan was quickly stifled by the league.

Customers looking to purchase NBA jerseys with approved custom slogans on the back have found that the NBA store endorses anti-cop slogans, but “Free Hong Kong” was forbidden.

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.”

Some of the slogans that they did allow were simply disturbing.

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

The NBA also allowed “Burn Jews” and “Kill Cops”, leading to the inevitable conclusion that the NBA’s leadership was more concerned about offending the Chinese government than they were about offending the rest of the world.
