After the offensive audio recording allegedly by Clippers owner Donald Sterling dropped late Friday night, Clippers players reportedly met to discuss the nine-minute conversation. So far, the Clippers players have stayed mum, but they are now being asked by many to take a social stand. Only time will tell if the Clippers will stage protest. From the L.A. Daily News:
[Players] don’t rebound from the sort of vicious, racist, hate-filled remarks owner Donald Sterling can be heard spewing in a remarkably, bigoted, tasteless nearly 10-minute taped conversation in which he tells his girlfriend, V. Stiviano, that he doesn’t want her posting pictures of minorities or bringing African-Americans to Clippers games.
And it’s all out there for everyone to hear, thanks to TMZ Sports, which broke the story late Friday night.
Needless to say, it immediately reached the Clippers players, who, according to a source, held a team meeting to discuss the situation.
It won’t take long before the contents of that meeting begin filtering out.
