CarMax is the first Los Angeles Clippers sponsor to drop the team over owner Donald Sterling’s purported racist remarks.

“CarMax finds the statements attributed to the Clippers’ owner completely unacceptable,” the company said in a statement through public relations manager Catherine Gryp on Monday. “These views directly conflict with CarMax’s culture of respect for all individuals. While we have been a proud Clippers sponsor for nine years and support the team, fans and community, these statements necessitate that CarMax end its sponsorship.”

But years after despising each other, the pair made up while on NBC’s The Voice. “She’s so talented, she’s a really sweet person. We made up on The Voice. I hadn’t seen her in years and years an years. We became moms, we grew up, we hugged it out.”
