The Golden State Warriors public relations team is distancing the franchise from minority owner, Chamath Palihapitiya, (above right with Warriors forward Draymond Green) after the billionaire boldly stated "nobody cares" about the Uyghur genocide in China on Saturday.

In a statement, the NBA franchise called Palihapitiya a "limited investor" whose views don't reflect that of the team.

While discussing politics on his show, the All-In Podcast, the 34-year-old venture capitalist repeatedly told his co-hosts that "Nobody cares about the Uyghurs." Palihapitiya said he cares about many things, including inflation, American health care infrastructure and climate change, but not the genocide China is accused of carrying out against the Muslim Uyghurs.

"Nobody cares about what's happening to the Uyghurs, okay. You bring it up because you really care, and I think it's nice that you really care, the rest of us don't care," said Palihapitiya, who is also on the board of Virgin Galactic. "I'm just telling you a very hard, ugly truth. Of all the things I care about, yes, it's below my line." Read more.
