Terry Crews recently did an interview with VladTV regarding the Donald Sterling controversy. Sterling has been banned from the NBA for making racist comments on an audio recording that was made without his knowledge and then later released to TMZ. Sterling has a history of racial discrimination, some of which he even faced lawsuits for. The current controversy revolves around a photo his companion, V Stiviano, took with Michael Johnson at a Dodgers game and the conversation that took place after he became aware of the photo. Sterling has repeatedly bashed Michael Johnson and made derogatory comments about black people both in the original audio recording and during his attempts to apologize for the incident.

 

The backlash from the comments have been widespread with some players, including Lebron James, threatening to boycott if Sterling was not adequately and swiftly reprimanded for his actions.

 

Crews is an actor and former football player who is best known for his role in the sitcom Everybody Hates Chris. He has played in a number of movies and television shows over the course of his career. Crews experience as a professional athlete gives him a unique perspective on the Sterling controversy. Crews was drafted by the Los Angeles Rams in the 1991 NFL Draft. During his career, he also played for the San Diego Chargers, the Washington Redskins, and the Philadelphia Eagles.

 

In the VladTV interview, Crews discusses the Sterling controversy and suggests that Sterling should be forgiven. He feels as though it is hypocritical for people to judge Sterling based on comments he made in private. Crews also admits that there are things he has said in private that would most likely offend people if they were to be made public. In what may come as a surprise, Crews also sides with Bishop Don Juan and Yukmouth stating that the NBA should not force Sterling’s removal as owner of the Los Angeles Clippers.
