Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling is certainly in hot water after TMZ released audio of Sterling telling his girlfriend not to bring any minorities to any games or to not hang around any.

The conversation stemmed from a picture his girlfriend posted on Instagram with Laker great Magic Johnson.

The audio surfaced early this morning on TMZ’s website.

Earlier today, Magic Johnson and the NBA both issued statements about Sterling.

Johnson said that “It’s a shame that Donald Sterling feels that way about Africa-Americans. He had a team of amazing African – American players who are working to bring a championship to the Clippers.”

The NBA followed with their own statement calling Sterling’s calling his remarks, “offensive.” The NBA said that they will be launching an investigation.
