A minority owner of the NBA team Golden State Warriors is facing backlash after his recent comments on a podcast about the treatment of the Uyghurs in China.
“Nobody cares about what’s happening to the Uyghurs," Palihapitiya said to co-host Jason Calacanis, according to the media outlets. "You bring it up because you really care, and I think that’s nice that you care. The rest of us don’t care. I’m telling you a very hard, ugly truth, okay? Of all the things that I care about, yes, it is below my line.”
According to Deadline, the remark was made after Calacanis praised President Joe Biden’s China policy.
"His views certainly don’t reflect those of our organization," the team said.
