Los Angeles Clipper owner Donald Sterling was caught on tape making racist remarks. Sterling told his girlfriend, V. Stiviano, he didn't want her bringing black people to his games; his anger was ignited after she posted a photo on Instagram of her and Magic Johnson. The audio was originally posted by TMZ.

Sterling and the Clippers released a statement shortly thereafter stating, "We have heard the tape on TMZ. We do not know if it is legitimate or it has been altered," the statement said. "We do know that the woman on the tape -- who we believe released it to TMZ -- is the defendant in a lawsuit brought by the Sterling family, alleging that she embezzled more than $1.8 million, who told Mr. Sterling that she would 'get even.'"

Many reacted to the audio, including Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, Charles Barkley, and President Obama. The NBA is currently investigating.

What People Are Talking About

This week, Batman will make his triumphant return as a kid from Bahston; 'NSync is messing with us; and Allen Iverson is ready to retire.

Ben Affleck is Batman

The internet has lots of opinions, and the no one can decide if Ben Affleck as Batman is the best or worst decision DC has made for its upcoming "Superman" sequel. All we know is we have a lot of feelings. Some are arguing that Ben Affleck as Batman is a horrible, awful, rotten, no-good choice — likely in part because Ben Affleck is known as a less-than-fantastic actor. On other parts of the internet, however, some are saying Ben as Batman is actually an excellent choice. He likes comics, he recently did well critically with "Argo," and similar hoopla surrounded Heath Ledger when he was cast as The Joker, which turned out to be one of the most well-acted roles of all time. So the jury's out, but it's still fun to fight about it. Let's keep in mind that Ben Affleck was in "Daredevil"... and we all know how that ended up.
