Former Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling doesn't have many supporters after racists comments he made in a phone call were made public, resulting in a lifetime ban from the NBA and the loss of his team.
In an interview with GQ Magazine, popular comedian Dave Chappelle offered a unique take:
Ultimately, I don’t think he should have lost his team. I don’t like the idea that someone could record a secret conversation and that a person could lose their assets from that, even though I think what he said was awful. When you think about the intimacy of a situation, like, can a man just chill with his mistress in peace?
I just don’t like when things like that happen, because if they take s--- away for things that people say that are objectionable, I may not have anything in a few years. Granted, I don’t think I say s--- like "Stop bringing white people to my game."
Chappelle, 41, is a known Warriors fan and has a strong following in the Bay Area, where he visits and performs frequently.
