Tank is the latest person boycotting Los Angeles Clippers owner, Donald Sterling, after a recorded tape of him making racist remarks surfaced over the weekend.

The R&B singer is now refusing to sing the National Anthem at Tuesday’s Clippers playoff game and Golden State.

“As an African American man and artist, I must take a stand on a matter that is so deeply personal to me,” Tank tells TMZ.

“In light of the recent disturbing and offensive allegations, in good conscience, I cannot move forward with my scheduled appearance at Tuesday’s Los Angeles Clippers game,” adds Tank.

As Gossip Cop has previously reported, Sterling’s outrageously offensive recorded argument with girlfriend V. Stiviano has already led to condemnation from President Obama, Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg, and others calling for a boycott and action from the NBA.

What do you think of Tank’s decision to pull put of singing the National Anthem?
