Pat McCrory Roasted by Full Page Newspaper Ad on His 60th Birthday
Today, homophobic North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory — author of anti gay bathroom bill “HB2” — celebrates his 60th birthday, and it’s not going to be pleasant birthday for him.
A group called the Writers for a Progressive North Carolina purchased a full page newspaper ad in today’s Raleigh News & Observer with headline “HB2 U, PAT” with a rainbow layer cake and text that reads, “Governor McCrory, we send you our best wishes today as you celebrate your 60th birthday. But the real celebration will begin November 8th when North Carolina votes to move in a more progressive direction.”
When the creator of the ad was asked about the business risk of taking on a small political project, he responded, “I believe HB2 is a discriminatory bill that needs to be repealed. Doing this ad is the least that we could do to help repeal HB2. It’s the right thing to do. And doing the right thing is usually good for business.”
