Clippers losing sponsors over Donald Sterling's racist comments

Posted Monday, April 28th 2014 @ 2pm

(Los Angeles, CA)  --  Alleged racist remarks from Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling are starting to hit the team in the pocketbook.  Both State Farm and CarMax have announced they are pulling out as advertising sponsors of the team. State Farm officials say Sterling's comments are offensive to say the least.  They've decided to suspend their relationship with the team until all the facts can be sorted out.  

Sterling has been under fire since TMZ released an audio recording over the weekend in which he allegedly tells his girlfriend not to associate with Magic Johnson and not to bring African-Americans to Clippers games.
