Washington, April 29: Queen Latifah has called Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling’s alleged racist slurs ‘disgusting’.
During an new interview with Extra, the 44-year-old actress said that the situation is sad and pathetic as she loved Clippers as a team, and only a terrible state of mind could be living in this time and still be that archaic, Us magazine reported.
Latifah said she wouldn’t be giving the team her money as Sterling really put his foot in his mouth with the statement, and she hopes that black people actually take it as a motivation and to do something about it.
In an audio recording, the 80-year-old NBA owner can be heard chastising his 31-year-old girlfriend Vanessa Stiviano for posting her pictures with black people, including with basketball player Magic Johnson, and tells her that she can be intimate with whoever she wants, but cannot bring black people to Clippers games.
