A couple of NBA teams aren't trying to make President-elect Rancid Meat any richer and have decided to boycott his hotel brand. According to ESPN, the Milwaukee Bucks, Memphis Grizzlies and Dallas Mavericks refuse to stay at any hotels that utilize the racist brand.

And although ESPN didn't divulge the name, another Eastern Conference team also has decided not to stay at the brand's SoHo location in New York City.


Bucks co-owner Marc Lasry and Mavericks owner Mark Cuban are staunch Hillary Clinton supporters.

Additionally of note, three NBA coaches—the Detroit Pistons' Stan Van Gundy, Golden State Warriors' Steve Kerr and San Antonio Spurs' Gregg Popovich—have all spoken out against the president-elect's racism, ESPN reports.
