The world will never forget the harsh, offensive words uttered by Donald Sterling … Including Magic Johnson’s son, EJ.
In May, Sterling sat down with Anderson Cooper to talk about being the face of one of the biggest scandals in NBA history. During the duo’s chat, Sterling also trashed his “friend,” Magic, telling Cooper: “Has he done everything he can do to help minorities? I don’t think so. I’ll say it, he’s great, but I just don’t think he is a good example for the children of Los Angeles.”
While on the red carpet for the Los Angeles premiere of Think Like a Man Too, HipHollywood caught up with EJ to get his reaction on the horrific things Sterling said about EJ’s father.
“I really thought it was outlandish talk. There’s no room in any industry for racism. I was just more disappointed and more baffled than anything else that this is still a prevalent issue,” EJ told us exclusively.
It’s worth noting that it was an Instagram photo of Magic Johnson and V. Stiviano that was the catalyst for the taped recordings that went viral and which eventually led to Sterling being banned from the NBA for life.
Last month, it was confirmed by Donald’s wife, Shelly that Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer was buying the Clippers for a whopping $2 billion dollars. But now, Sterling is fighting back and has filed a lawsuit against the NBA for forcing him out as owner.
“The Team is not for Sale” and said that “from the onset, I did not want to sell the Los Angeles Clippers,” Donald said. “I have decided that I must fight to protect my rights,” Donald Sterling said. “While my position may not be popular, I believe that my rights to privacy and the preservation of my rights to due process should not be trampled. I love the team and have dedicated 33 years of my life to the organization. I intend to fight to keep the team.”
‘Annihilation’s’ Leading Ladies Use Intense Military Training As Bonding Experience
Annihilation is one hell of a visually stunning sci-fi film with five female leads on an expedition to uncover the mysterious phenomenon that is expanding across the American coastline.
For Natalie Portman, Tessa Thompson and Gina Rodriguez, the film, which also lends a voice to what is being called the year of the woman, dressing in head to toe military gear and going through tactical training was a bonding experience.
“”t was really fun. It’s weird to say that. But to have all these women in military training together, where we had to do these exercises … it was a great bonding experience with each other.” Portman told us.
And although the women had the opportunity to use real guns, firearms is not something the ladies of Hollywood advocate. “I’m anti gun to be honest,” Rodriguez said. “I say no guns. There’s no reason for people to have guns especially when you have these,” she said while holding up her firsts.
