WATCH: Westboro Baptist at the AAC

Posted on 06 Jun 2011 at 10:03am

Last night we told you that picketers from Westboro Baptist Church were outside the American Airlines Center on Sunday, prior to Game 3 of the NBA Finals, protesting the league’s recent crackdown on anti-gay slurs — or, according to WBC, Commissioner David Stern’s decision to “cram the homosexual lifestyle down the throat of America.” Looks like KDAF-33 was the only station to report on the picket, and their video is below. If anything, Westboro’s picket should only strengthen the NBA’s resolve to become more LGBT-friendly. Perhaps it will even help spur one of the league’s teams to join baseball’s San Francisco Giants, Chicago Cubs and Boston Red Sox and film an “It Gets Better” video. How ’bout it, Mavericks?
