According to TMZ, Donald Sterling says Magic Johnson is a bad example for the children of L.A. because of what he did to “get A.I.D.S.” back in the ’90s … and says he should be ashamed of himself. He also claimed that Magic Johnson may have tricked him into staying quiet days after the original audio recording was released as a plot to take over clippers.
Sterling who made the comments to Anderson Cooper during his big CNN interview said “To do what [Magic] did and then get A.I.D.S. … I mean, come on.”
For the record, Magic does not have A.I.D.S., but was diagnosed H.I.V. positive back in 1991.
But that didnt stop Sterling from continuing his attack on Magic. He went on to say, “Big Magic Johnson … what has he done? He’s got A.I.D.S.”
“What kind of a guy goes to every city and has sex with every girl? Then he catches H.I.V. … is that someone we wanna respect and tell our kids about? I think he should be ashamed of himself. I think he should go into the background.”
He then shifted the firing baton to the CNN anchorman calling Anderson Cooper a RACIST saying, “I think you have more of a plantation mentality than I do … and I think you’re more of a racist than I am.”
Sterling however maintained the stance that his players appreciate him, ”they still love me.” But then he says the media hates him.
