Donald Sterling’s Alleged Racist Rant Got Rihanna, Judd Apatow, Ciara and More In an Uproar
Celebrities are really not happy with Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling’s alleged racist rant.
“This Donald Sterling Situation Is Just Truly Sad And Unbelieveable,” singer Ciara tweeted on Monday, adding, “It Also Shows You That When A Person Appears To Have Everything On The Outside, They Can Still Be Empty and Full of Nothing On The Inside.”
Riri also shared her thoughts on her Instagram account with a number of memes, while director Judd Apatow served up a series of tweets that began, “My deal to buy the Clippers is closed. Lots of new rules to announce. First of all– all races and religions are allowed to attend games,” and went on from there.
Kobe Bryant, Los Angeles Lakers’ star player insisted, “No. He should not continue owning the clippers. #nochance #noway #nohow.”
“The comments allegedly made by Clippers owner, Donald Sterling, are offensive and reprehensible, and they are inconsistent with our views and values,” Kia Motors said in a statement to E! News. “We are suspending our advertising and sponsorship activations with the Clippers. Meanwhile, as fans of the game of basketball, our support of the players and the sport is unwavering.” Clippers power forward Blake Griffin stars in several Kia commercials.
Even, Virgin America released a statement, saying, “While we continue to support the fans and the players, Virgin America has made the decision to end its sponsorship of the L.A. Clippers.”
