CHARLOTTE, N.C. The Charlotte Hornets issued a statement Friday regarding a new law in North Carolina.

“The Charlotte Hornets and Hornets Sports & Entertainment are opposed to discrimination in any form, and we have always sought to provide an inclusive environment. As has been the case since the building opened, we will continue to ensure that all fans, players and employees feel welcome while at work or attending NBA games and events at Time Warner Cable Arena.”

The statement was issued a day after the NBA reacted to the legislature’s vote voiding Charlotte’s non-discrimination ordinance.
