Donald Sterling NEW, LONGER Tape: I Feed Black People (LISTEN)
An extended version of the racist Donald Sterling tape has surfaced — and it’s bad. TMZ’s original nine-minute audio recording of the Los Angeles Clippers owner’s outrageously offensive argument with girlfriend V. Stiviano led to condemnation from President Obama, Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg, and others calling for a boycott and action by the NBA.
On Sunday, Deadspin revealed that it has obtained a longer, 15-minute version of the recording; TMZ and other outlets soon posted the audio, too. The new clips (hear below) should only add to the outrage, as Sterling (who claims he’s not racist) is heard complaining about Stiviano’s association with black people.
When she points out that the Clippers are mostly black, Sterling shoots back, “I support them and give them food, and clothes, and cars, and houses. Who gives it to them? Does someone else give it to them?Do I know that I have — Who makes the game? Do I make the game, or do they make the game? Is there 30 owners, that created the league?”
Stiviano is heard apologizing for taking a picture with Los Angeles Dodgers star Matt Kemp, telling Sterling, “I thought Matt Kemp is mixed, and he was OK, just like me.” Later, the Holocaust is invoked. It’s all awful. Listen to the NEW recordings below.
