Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling is apparently not pleading the fifth on allegations that he is a racist. Sterling and the Clippers organization have released a statement to TMZ Sports.

Sterling and the Clippers organization tell TMZ Sports, “We have heard the tape on TMZ.  We do not know if it is legitimate or it has been altered.”

The statement goes on … 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.'”

And the statement goes on, “Mr. Sterling is emphatic that what is reflected on that recording is not consistent with, nor does it reflect his views, beliefs or feelings. It is the antithesis of who he is, what he believes and how he has lived his life.”

And there’s this: “He feels terrible that such sentiments are being attributed to him and apologizes to anyone who might have been hurt by them.”

 The audio seemed very clear, but Sterling is using the only excuse he could find. There doesn’t seem like any way that Sterling can redeem himself from this one.
