Texas Gov. Mocks NFL’s Warning That “Bathroom Bill” Will Cost State Future Super Bowls

Over the weekend, we reported that the NFL may choose not to host further Super Bowls in Texas if the state passes a new proposed “bathroom bill” targeting transgender people. Well now it would seem that the state’s governor thinks the whole idea is one big joke.

Mocking the NFL’s “decision makers” on Twitter, Republican Gov. Greg Abbott made the odd comparison of the league’s veiled threat and NFL player Tom Brady and the New England Patriots winning the latest edition of the Super Bowl (coincidently hosted in Houston) despite the league’s decision to suspend Brady last season.

You can read what he tweeted out on Saturday below.

Already some Texans on Twitter have voiced their discontent over the governor’s words.
