Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling is back in the news again for being awful, just in time for his team’s playoff run.
In audio obtained by TMZ, he tells his girlfriend, V. Stiviano, not to post pictures of minorities on her social media pages or bring African-Americans to Clippers games.
This policy apparently applies to Magic Johnson, who is mentioned by name. TMZ reports this argument took place on April 9 after Stiviano posted a photo of her posing with the Hall of Famer on Instagram.
Among some of Sterling’s lowlights in this nine-minute meltdown:
– “It bothers me a lot that you want to broadcast that you’re associating with black people. Do you have to?” (3:30)
– “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.” (5:15)
– “I’m just saying, in your lousy f******* Instagrams, you don’t have to have yourself with, walking with black people.” (7:45)
– “…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.” (9:13)
Sadly, this type of behavior is nothing new for Sterling.
