We’ve all heard about Donald Sterling’s fall from grace due to his ongoing history of racist comments, recently the 81-year-old messed-up big time when he was caught telling his “mixed” girlfriend to stop associating herself with “black people.”
Don seamed frustrated by the fact his much younger lover, identified as V. Stiviano had posted a picture of herself accompanied with NBA great magic Johnson to her instagram.

“I find the statements and representations made by the Clippers’ team owner to be deplorable and disgusting. There is no room in sports or society in general, for racism,” he told the gossip site. “I pledge my full support for the wonderful players, coaches and staff members of the Clippers organization. I have complete faith that Commissioner Silver will deal with this matter swiftly and severely… If these comments should happen to cost me my employment with the team, it is but a small price to pay to speak out against ignorance and racism.”
Eric’s wife, Joanna Sterling, also spoke her mind about the unfortunate events saying
“I am devastated and saddened by the cruel and insensitive comments expressed in these audio tapes.”
