Donald Sterling: Still The Talk of TV


Donald Sterling

Donald Sterling is still the most talked about man on TV.  For all the wrong reasons, of course.

Last night, JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE dedicated 7 minutes of his show (in addition to monologue jokes) to the disgraced Los Angeles Clippers owner.

In the clip below, the host visits Legends Barbershop in Los Angeles — where it appears all of the customers are African American — to get their reaction to Sterling’s racist remarks and the punishment handed down by the NBA.

Sterling continued to make news this morning with FOX AND FRIENDS slamming GQ magazine over a recent tweet joking that the billionaire would soon get his own show on the Fox News Channel.  (h/t TheWrap.com)


“Half the country leans to the right, half to the left,” host Steve Doocy notes in the clip below. “For them to anger half of the country who might buy their stupid magazine, that’s just not a good business model!”

Sterling’s story will likely rage on for months, if not years after The Clippers season comes to an end.  But if you ask me,  it is time to move on to something new.

And if we must talk about racism on television, how about a shout out to Paula Deen, who is embarking on a 20 city live tour.
