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.
