Los Angeles social media is making headlines across the world today, thanks to Clippers owner Donald Sterling. After Sterling’s alleged mistress, V. Stiviano, recorded a heated conversation with the Clippers’ owner, revealing his strong racial prejudices ─ which was mysteriously leaked to TMZ.
The argument began when Sterling asked Stiviano to take down an Instagram photo of herself with Magic Johnson, because of the color of his skin. He continues by insisting that she not bring black people with her to Clippers games.
TMZ posted some of Sterling’s most outrageous comments, including:
"It bothers me a lot that you want to broadcast that you’re associating with black people. Do you have to?"
"You can sleep with [black people]. You can bring them in, you can do whatever you want. The little I ask you is not to promote it on that ... and not to bring them to my games."
-- "I’m just saying, in your lousy f******* Instagrams, you don’t have to have yourself with, walking with black people."
"...Don't put him [Magic] on an Instagram for the world to have to see so they have to call me. And don't bring him to my games."
The incident has drawn outrage across the country as players and fans vow to boycott the team until Sterling has been removed.
