CarMax, Other Sponsors Dropping Los Angeles Clippers



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.”

Insurance giant State Farm is also taking a “pause” from working with the team.

“State Farm strongly supports and respects diversity and inclusion in its workforce and customers,” the company said in a statement Monday. “The remarks attributed to the Clippers’ owner are offensive.

Sterling is under fire for allegedly telling his girlfriend V. Stiviano that he did not want Black people at his games.
