Donald Sterling Tries To Help Himself By Attacking Magic Johnson Again
Donald Sterling gave an interview to Anderson Cooper and, unfathomably, took another shot at Magic Johnson.
The 80-year-old billionaire slumlord, who received a lifetime ban from the NBA and a $2.5 million fine, saved his most outrageous comments for the man he insulted on the original secret recording. Of NBA legend Magic Johnson, Sterling said on the tape, “Admire him, bring him here, feed him, f**k him, but don’t put [Magic] on an Instagram for the world to have to see so they have to call me. And don’t bring him to my games.” Now, to Cooper:
Sterling told CNN he’s spoken twice with Johnson.
“Did you apologize to him?” Cooper asked.
“If I said anything wrong, I’m sorry,” Sterling said. “He’s a good person. I mean, what am I going to say? Has he done everything he can do to help minorities? I don’t think so. But I’ll say it, he’s great. But I don’t think he’s a good example for the children of Los Angeles.“
Way to go, Mr. Sterling, (nee´Tokowitz). Nice way to rehabilitate your image as a not-racist and friend of Magic Johnson.
