Village People Singer

Issuing 'Y.M.C.A.' Ban On Clippers

4/27/2014 4:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0427-the-village-people-clipper-01Young man, there IS need to feel down ... because the cop from Village People says he's BANNING the L.A. Clippers from playing "Y.M.C.A." at home games ... thanks to Donald Sterling. 

Victor Willis -- who reportedly owns the rights to the song -- is furious ... saying, "Sterling, you're banned from playing "Y.M.C.A." or any of my music @LAClippers games.  And I mean it!"

Victor's rep tells us the singer is dead serious about the ban -- and will be sending an official notice to Donald Sterling first thing tomorrow morning.

So, in conclusion ... you can get yourself clean, you can have a good meal, but you CAN'T do whatever you feel.

Dig deep on Sterling his friends and their attitudes. He jumped out of the hot tub and everyone is nervous.

why does this guy get the evil bastard treatment, yet the rest of us are supposed to accept anyone elses alternative lifestyles as acceptable? why is gay ok but racist not?

equality means equality, not just for the faction that is PC at the "moment"

And please tell black people to stop using the N word, because it is disrespectful to their ancestors, and it is a form of keeping blacks and whites segregated from each other, since it is not an acceptable word to be used by white people. If you want equality, you must be willing to give it.

I'm looking forward to a day when it's revealed that the head coach of the American Mens Figure Skating team is a gay basher. The fall-out would be ridiculously entertaining.

If the organization paid for the rights to the song, can he ban it's use? Sounds like a well meaning gesture, but legally, I'm not sure how enforceable it is.
