Donald Sterling

TRASHES MAGIC JOHNSON

It's pretty incredible ... Donald Sterling goes on the attack against Magic Johnson during his interview with Anderson Cooper.

As you know, a photo of Magic with V. Stiviano that she posted on Instagram was the catalyst for the now-famous recording first posted on TMZ Sports.

Sterling told Cooper he's spoken with Magic twice since the recording became public, and then gratuitously added that Magic has not done enough to help minorities.

But then he went on ... saying Magic was not a good example for the children of L.A.

The interview airs tonight on CNN at 8P.

Youphemism    

Well, Magic Johnson doesn't own basketball teams, hire hookers posing as "archivists," get caught spewing loathesome, venomous racist comments while trying to screw around on his wife then, in the same breath with a mumbled, halfassed non-apology, turn around and publicly backstab and badmouth the guy he just got taken to task for discriminating against...

But really, that's an unrealistic standard of behavior to use for a yardstick.

Whatever. He thinks what he thinks. He's outed, he's a pariah and he's ruined. Now, about his prostitute. What about her? What was said to her was said in private ... before you all jump on me, I'M NOT SAYING IT IS RIGHT TO FEEL THAT WAY, but that's the way he feels. He's a pathetic old man with ugly young women on his arm thinking it makes him look good, pissed off at her because her black half gets all ghetto around black men, as evidenced in pictures. What about her? She deserves backlash.

Before commenting, some posters need to learn the difference between HIV and AIDS. Regardless, both diseases aren't punishment from God. There are other ways to get infected other than sex, including an occupation [ex: healthcare worker]. Sterling should talk about himself, his actions, and stop blaming others for his beliefs.

This guy really needs to learn to shut up. Does he not have lawyers telling him to keep his mouth shut? There's a reason why lawyers tell you to keep your mouth shut, Donald. You've heard of the right to remain silent? Well use it.

Tragic Magic should get his fat son to lose weight and leave Sterling alone! Why no hate on the con artist jail bird Stiviano? The man didn't want his mistress taking selfies ? Big deal!

Look at Sterling. How many women has he been with since he's been married? What has Magic Johnson done that Sterling hasn't done? He needs to look in the mirror. The only thing different is Magic WAS NOT MARRIED and he got Aids.
