Larry King Slams Clippers Owner Donald Sterling For Racist Remarks, Says "Get Him Out Of The League!"

Apr 28, 2014 09:51 AM

The Los Angeles Clippers may have staged a silent protest at their game over the weekend after owner Donald Sterling's racist comments leaked online, but Larry King had no problem speaking out about the situation!

Larry dined at Craig's in West Hollywood on Sunday night, and when asked about Sterling's remarks, the TV icon said, "Get him out of the league ... any way they can!"

An alleged audio recording of Sterling and girlfriend V. Stiviano was posted on TMZ last week, and the NBA owner/real estate mogul says he doesn't want Stiviano bringing African American pals to his games or posting pictures of them online -- specifically Magic Johnson!

Sterling is heard saying, "It bothers me a lot that you want to broadcast that you’re associating with black people. Do you have to? ... I’m just saying, in your lousy f*cking Instagrams, you don’t have to have yourself with, walking with black people."

Stiviano says that all she did was take a picture with someone she admires. Sterling's alleged reply?

    "I think the fact that you admire [Magic] -- I've known him well, and he should be admired. And I'm just saying that it's too bad you can't admire him privately. And during your entire f*cking life, your whole life, admire him -- bring him here, feed him, f*ck him, I don't care. You can do anything. But don't put him on an Instagram for the world to see so they have to call me. And don't bring him to my games. OK?"

Um, yikes! Regarding Sterling's comments about Johnson, King added, "Terrible. The whole thing is terrible." We agree -- and the Clippers are making it clear that this is completely unacceptable as well.

During their warmup for their playoff game against the Golden State Warriors on Sunday at the ORACLE Arena in Oakland, the whole team got together in the middle of the court and ripped off their shooting jerseys to reveal inside-out red warm-up shirts, which hid the Clippers logo. When it was time to play, the team did put their uniforms back on, but they were all wearing black wristbands during the game.

"We're going to be one, everything we do, we do it together," Clippers point guard Chris Paul told ESPN. "Stay together, play ball."

In fact, she is the last of the great movie stars. Never been anyone like her from the way she looked with those incredible eyes, to the way her life went with pain and joy. She was -- she wrote her own chapter in a book that's hers."

Piers Morgan Admits Using The Word "Dangerous" In His Show Promos Was "British Humor"

Feb 24, 2011 09:38 AM

Larry King appeared on Piers Morgan Tonight ready to tackle the controversy that erupted after the legendary CNN host questioned Morgan's use of the word "dangerous" in show promos ... admitting the British host may have "oversold" himself.

During the CNN interview, King asked Morgan:

    "Were you being facetious when you said you were dangerous? Was that an attempt at British humor?"

Morgan then asked King whether he has watched any of his shows. King relied:

    "About eight. I haven't seen you dangerous yet. I said you're capable."

When explaining what he meant in the promo by using the word "dangerous," Morgan added:

    "We couldn't come in and undersell. I'm following a legend. You can't follow Sinatra in Vegas and say, 'By the way, I'm not very good, and this is going to be useless.'"

Later in the interview, Morgan admitted to King, "I was only kidding. British humor."

Find out what King calls "dangerous" ... after the jump.
