Donald Sterling’s Wife Shelly Sterling Speaks Out
Donald Sterling’s does not share her husband’s views on Black people. Shelly Sterling slammed the Los Angeles Clippers owner and estranged husband in a statement released to TMZ on Sunday.
“Our family is devastated by the racist comments made by my estranged husband. My children and I do not share these despicable views or prejudices. We will not let one man’s small-mindedness poison the spirit of the fans and accomplishments of the team in the city we love. We are doing everything in our power to stand by and support our Clippers team.”
Shelly was at Sunday’s playoff game where players showed their disdain for their racist owner by tossing their shoot around gear at center court before tipoff. Sterling’s voice can be heard on an audio recording telling a girlfriend that he did not want Black people coming to his games.
