“In the private sector in North Carolina, she can go wherever the private sector wants her to,” the Republican governor said (via the Charlotte Observer).
“If she’s going to a shower facility at UNC-Chapel Hill after running around the track, she’s going to use the men’s shower.”
A spokesperson for Jenner has not responded to a request by The Post for a comment on McCrory’s remark.
In April, Jenner posted a Facebook video praising New York’s Trump International Hotel and Tower, where she had taken a bathroom break in the women’s room.
“A trans woman in New York, I gotta take a pee,” she said in the clip. “Anyways, Oh my God, Trump International Tower, I love this.”
In an aside to Ted Cruz, she added: “By the way, Ted, nobody got molested.”
According to Jenner, the North Carolina bathroom bill could lead to “aggressive and confrontational behavior in bathrooms” and that women and girls may have to “prove that they are actually female” to use the bathroom.
“We all want safety and privacy in public bathrooms,” Jenner blogged back in April. “But these anti-LGBT bills, like the ones in North Carolina and Mississippi, actually make us less safe, not more safe. They open the door to abuse, aggressive and confrontational behavior in bathrooms, and encourage strangers to demand that women and girls prove that they are actually female in order to use the restroom. No one wants that.”
Since signing the bill into law in March, the state of North Carolina has seen a number of sports-related events pull out of the state. The NBA moved next February’s All-Star Game out of Charlotte and the NCAA pulled championship events, as well as men’s basketball tournament games in Greensboro, out of the state. In addition, music stars like Bruce Springsteen canceled performances there.
