Seahawks’ Russell Wilson responds to report he moved wedding due to N.C. bathroom law
RENTON – Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson responded Wednesday to a report that he and his wife moved their wedding out of North Carolina due to the state’s controversial transgender bathroom law, though he neither confirmed nor denied that was indeed the case.
In a story that was published earlier this week, the wedding planner for Wilson and singer Ciara was quoted as saying the couple called off plans to wed in North Carolina because of House Bill 2, which requires transgender people to use public restrooms in accordance with the sex listed on their birth certificate.
Wilson was asked Wednesday if he can confirm that report and to explain his decision.
Wilson’s response, in its entirety: “Well, I’m just going to simply talk about, I just believe Jesus loves all people. That’s honestly what I believe and I just always constantly pray for world peace, I pray for peace in the world, I pray for joy. But my focus, honestly, right now is just on the Cowboys and scoring in the red zone.”
Wilson and Ciara were married in July in England.
