UPDATE: The Warriors said in a statement that they haven't received an official invitation or made an official decision yet. However, the teams' previous remarks suggest it may be true.
According to reports, the recently crowned NBA champions, the Golden State Warriors, have reportedly unanimously voted to skip the traditional trip winners trip to the White House. Cue the "MORE LIKE THE SOCIAL JUSTICE WARRIORS!" from the Twitter trolls.
They're the winners, after all. Why should they have to hang out with a racist xenophobe who threatens civil rights? Plus, President Donald Trump probably hates basketball players for having such big hands.

Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, herself from the Golden State, applauded their resistance and invited them to the Capitol instead.
Obama and the Warriors had a really good time when the team won the championship in 2015.
