Westboro Baptist Church plans to two NBA playoff games, using “#GodH8stheNBA” in its announcement on Twitter.
Tonight’s game between the Houston Rockets and Thunder in Oklahoma City and Thursday night’s game between the Brooklyn Nets and Bulls in Chicago are the targets of their protests, which come two days after Jason Collins announced that he is gay.
In its announcement about tonight’s protest, the church mentioned the Thunder’s Kevin Durant, who said when Collins came out in Sports Illustrated: “”If he’s happy, that’s cool with me. Seems like a great guy. … I support him.”
