Magic Johnson has responded to remarks made by Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling.
In a bizarre interview with Anderson Cooper that aired Monday, Sterling questioned Johnson’s character, as well as his contributions to the African American community.
During an interview with CNN on Tuesday, Johnson made the following statement:
“It’s sad. It really is. I’m going to pray for this … man,” Johnson told CNN’s Anderson Cooper in an exclusive interview. Johnson told Cooper he is still waiting for an apology from Sterling for getting roped into Sterling’s fight with Stiviano, and Johnson called the Monday interview — in which Sterling directed another tirade at the NBA legend — “disturbing.”
“What’s really sad is, it’s not about me,” Johnson said. “This is about the woman you love outing you and taping you and putting your conversation out here for everybody to know. … This is between you two, but then he wants to include me.”
Sterling’s controversial interview was the first time he had spoken publicly about the audio recordings released last month of him making racist remarks. Johnson became an involuntary figure in the controversy after being named by Sterling in the recording.
