Clippers owner Donald Sterling has allegedly been recorded making comments about race to his former
mistress. Deadspin and other national media outlets have released audio clips online.
Chumash Tribal Chairman Vincent Armenta released the following statement:
"We've always been proud supporters of the Los Angeles Clippers, however, the recent statements
attributed to the Clippers' owner have forced us to reconsider our relationship. We remain supportive of
the members of the team and we wish them the very best going forward. As a group that has long been
marginalized itself, the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians and the Chumash Casino Resort are especially
sensitive to maintaining the dignity of all people. We cannot ignore any statement that causes harm or
hurts any group. As a result, we're withdrawing our sponsorship of the Clippers organization."
