'He Should Be Ashamed'

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. 

Sterling made the comments to Anderson Cooper during his big CNN interview ... saying "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. 

Sterling continued his attack on Magic -- saying, "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."

Sterling also said he believes Magic tricked him into staying quiet in the days after TMZ Sports published the original audio recording as part of a diabolical plot to take over the Clippers. 

Sterling also just called 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 didn't explain why he believes Cooper is a racist. 

Sterling seems to be in denial about how the players feel about him -- saying they still "love me." He says the media hates him.

I agree Magic Johnson is a horrible example for children. He has absolutely no morals and more than likely unknowingly exposed 100's of woman to HIV. Makes me sick. Not a role model.

Anderson seems to have a thing for Magic. He just needs to put Magic's Johnson in his mouth and STFU! He sounds so unprofessional and judgmental. Disgusting little b!+(#

How many women are no longer on this planet because they were not lucky enough to have Magic's healthcare back in 1989? Not to mention, MJ was lucky that he was one of the "non-progressors" who did not suffer the rapid destruction of the immune system...

MJ is no hero...dats 4 sho!

I don't like this guy one bit, however; Magic did admit to cheating on his pregnant wife with partners in every NBA city in the U.S.. So what do the morons do?.... build him a statue after he announces that he has H.I.V.
