Pro Sports Boss Puts NBA to Shame in Defense of Missing Chinese Athlete

In contrast to the cowardly National Basketball Association and its Commissioner Adam Silver, who remain silent in order to retain their relationship with the brutal Chinese government so their billions of dollars in revenue continue to flow, the head of the Women’s Tennis Association has spoken out about the disappearance of one of its players, Peng Shuai (pictured above).

Steve Simon, at the risk of losing as much as $1.4 billion from China, is openly questioning what happened to Peng after she disappeared after accusing Chinese Vice Premier Zhang Gaoli of sexual assault three years ago. She remains out of contact and her whereabouts are unknown.

Outkick reports:

“We’re definitely willing to pull our business and deal with all the complications that come with it,” Simon said Thursday during an interview with CNN. “Because this is certainly, this is bigger than the business.”

 

“Women need to be respected and not censored,” Simon added…

Simon says the WTA has been in contact with Chinese Tennis Association officials who claim Peng has been unharmed. But the tennis association boss can’t take their word for it.

 

“We have reached out to her on every phone number and email address and other forms of contact,” he told CNN. “There’s so many digital approaches to contact people these days that we have, and to date we still have not been able to get a response.”

Also, in contrast to LeBron James’s silence on China’s abuses, tennis legend Serena Williams expressed concern for Peng and her well-being.
