Charles Barkley is arguing the Final Four men’s basketball championship games should be moved out of Indiana because of the state’s new religious freedom law.

Critics charge that the law effectively legalizes discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people, as long as that discrimination is rooted in religious justification.

“Discrimination in any form is unacceptable to me,” Barkley, the Hall of Fame NBA star and basketball commentator, told USA Today.

“As long as anti-gay legislation exists in any state, I strongly believe big events such as the Final Four and Super Bowl should not be held in those states’ cities.”
