Sneak Peek Of Sterling’s “Apology” [VIDEO]
Tonight CNN will air Anderson Cooper’s entire Interview with Donald Sterling (The LA Clipper’s Owner who was banned from the league for his racist comments.) But we got a 6 min sneak peek of this interview for you here! You won’t believe what he says about Magic Johnson.
All my fellow Scandalholics, Gladiators and Olivia Pope wanna-bees know that the key to shutting down a Scandal is to come out and apologize right away! It’s been weeks since Donald Sterling’s racist rant was released to the media and FINALLY he speaks out on the matter. I’d hardly call it an apology, but watch and listen for yourself.
Here’s just a few gems from the interview:
‘I’m asking for forgiveness. When I listen to that tape, I don’t even know how I can say words like that. … I don’t know why the girl had me say those things…I mean, that’s not the way I talk. I don’t talk about people for one thing, ever. I talk about ideas and other things. I don’t talk about people.” -Donald Sterling
He goes on to say he made “One mistake” and asks for forgiveness. One mistake? We all have heard the stories of him refusing to rent to blacks and Mexicans way before this recorded call!
“I’m a good member who made a mistake and I’m apologizing and I’m asking for forgiveness…Am I entitled to one mistake, am I after 35 years? I mean, I love my league, I love my partners. Am I entitled to one mistake? It’s a terrible mistake, and I’ll never do it again.”
Oh so now he is a “Good Member”? So what is Magic Johnson? Sterling sarcastically says “He’s Great”
“If I said anything wrong, I’m sorry…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.”
Tune into Anderson 360 tonight at 8pm for the full story.
