A fan was ejected from a Philadelphia 76ers preseason game against the Chinese squad Guangzhou Loong Lions on Tuesday night after holding signs and shouting support for Hong Kong.
Sam Wachs and his wife were holding signs in support of Hong Kong during the 76ers game at the Wells Fargo Center, but those signs were confiscated.
Wach says “there's no foul language, no politics.' I asked 'Why not?' They said, 'Don't give me a hard time.'"
Wachs admitted he then stood up and started yelling "Free Hong Kong" before being escorted out.
Earlier this week, Houston Rocket's GM Daryl Morey tweeted his support of freedom for Hong Kong.That tweet triggered backlash between China and the NBA.
