Magic Johnson Tweets Stinging Response To Racist Comments From Clippers Owner Donald Sterling

Magic Johnson today hit back at LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling after he was recorded telling his girlfriend that black people were not welcome at his team’s games.

The shocking audio was published by TMZ and the 81-year-old business magnate can be heard telling V. Stiviano that she shouldn’t be posting pictures with black people on her Instagram and ordering her not to bring black people to games.

And he included NBA Hall of Famer Johnson in that.

Now Magic has taken to Twitter to respond to the report, slamming Sterling and insisting he will not attend another Clippers game as long as Sterling is still in charge of the organisation:

Sterling’s position at the Clippers now looks untenable with a number of black players and a black head coach in Doc Rivers reportedly furious with the comments.
