Bette Midler, Chris Rock and Josh Groban play the NBA scandal for laughs, while actress Sophia Bush calls Sterling “pathetic”
Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling is the talk of the town, and none of it is very flattering.
Rapper Snoop Dogg already made his feelings clear about the “redneck white bread chickens–t” and NBA icon Magic Johnson pledged to never attend another Clippers’ game — unless he buys the team, of course — while Sterling's estranged wife called her husband's racist audio recording “despicable.”
That's just the tip of the iceberg, as Sterling's startling conversation with ladyfriend V. Stiviano has inspired plenty of outrage in Hollywood — and plenty of good jokes, too.

Donald Sterling's racist remarks? What he's been saying for yrs. I think he should be stripped of his championship rings. All zero of them.
One of the most shocking things in this whole Donald Sterling controversy is that a man that old knows what Instagram is.
Yeah, it's weird. I'm so disappointed to hear that Donald Sterling is a disgusting racist. He was always my favorite California Raisin.

I'm really glad that Mel Gibson‘s girlfriend sold Donald Sterling's girlfriend her Record-a-phone 5000.

The rotting antiquity known as Donald Sterling was also under the misapprehension that '12 Years A Slave’ was a reality television series.

It's already past time for the @NBA to take major disciplinary action against THEIR racist franchise owner, Donald Sterling.

Of all comments everywhere one sentence will not be heard. “Who would have ever believed Donald Sterling would say something like that.”
