Brittney Griner Won't Play in Indiana Because Of Discrimination

WNBA star Brittney Griner says she wouldn't play in Indiana because of the state's Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Among other things, the act allows businesses to refuse service to same-sex couples if LGBT rights violate the company owner's religious beliefs.

Griner told TMZ if the NCAA's women's final four was held in Indiana, she wouldn't have entered the state to play because she doesn't want to be discriminated against.

The Phoenix Mercury center is one of the most well-known openly gay athletes on the planet. She also plays in China to earn more money.

Will play in China, won't play in Indiana. Not good, Indiana, not good.

Griner will marry her girlfriend Glory Johnson in May.
