After North Carolina passed a bill that repealed anti-discrimination laws in the state, business after business released statements of disappointment.
The bill, HB2, was signed into law by Gov. Pat McCrory a few hours after it was approved by the legislature, a vote that all Democrats walked out of.
Ricky Diaz, spokesman for McCrory’s re-election campaign, told the Charlotte Observer
Thursday that most feedback "has been positive," but social media says otherwise.
Businesses are worried because the bill repeals and prevents local anti-discrimination laws protecting LGBT citizens, and also prevents transgender people from using bathrooms of their preferred gender, calling it "social engineering."
