50 Cent On Donald Sterling: "I Just Saw A Man Being Betrayed"

Last month, the Los Angeles Clippers owner rankled people with his racist comments.

Last month, alleged audio emerged of Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling making a series of racist statements against Blacks. 

The audio, which was allegedly recorded April 9 and was posted by TMZ April 25, features the owner in an argument with V. Stiviano over an image she posted with Magic Johnson.

During their conversation, Sterling says, among other things, that "It bothers me a lot that you want to broadcast that you’re associating with Black people. Do you have to?”

Sterling says that he doesn’t mind his girlfriend, who is Black and Mexican, being around other Blacks.

"You can sleep with [Black people],” he says in the audio, which is available below. "You can bring them in. You can do whatever you want.  The little I ask you is not to promote it on that ... and not to bring them to my games.” 

Today (May 22), 50 Cent says that Sterling was betrayed.

“I couldn’t get past the concept of looking at an older man talking to a woman he’s in love with and making probably the biggest compromise ever, saying maybe, ‘If you like them, be with them. Sleep with them. Just don’t embarrass me,’” 50 Cent says during an interview posted by XXL. "So some of the things he said following that were inappropriate, but he’s saying to you that there’s other people around that I’m being embarrassed by that think and feel the way I feel. Now you’ve got one person that you’re pointing to, penalizing for that. He’s actually saying at that point, ‘Just don’t embarrass me,' meaning there’s other people that feel exactly like me here to be embarrassed by. I just watched it and I just saw a man being betrayed.” 

Last month, Snoop Dogg posted a response to Sterling’s comments on his Instagram account.

“A message to the muthafucka that own the Clippers,” Snoop Dogg says in his post. “You bitch-ass, redneck, white-bred, chicken shit muthafucka: Fuck you, your momma and everything connected to you you racist piece of shit. Fuck you.”

The 50 Cent interview, Snoop Dogg’s instagram post and the alleged audio of Sterling are as follows:

He always has problems with people, so he can relate.

    50 Cent and Sterling have a lot in common; they both think they can throw money at their employees and justify their behavior towards other people by saying: "I made my niggras millions". Sterling was a slum lord that denied so-called minorities equal opportunity housing due to his own hatred of minorities, 50 was a crack dealer who poisoned minorities with drugs due to his own self hatred. Sterling was/is being forced to sell his team because his negativity and bigotry will hurt the overall brand of the NBA and tarnish the image of a league that generates billions of dollars through corporate sponsors and Basketball fans. 50Cent was forced off his label because his negativity and disagreablness hurt his sales at Interscope and helped tarnish the G Unit brand in an industry that generates millions of dollars through corporate sponsors and music fans. Most of us see Sterling as a bigoted, racist delusional character who can have a Black-Mexican mistress but still view Blacks and Mexicans as inferior or "goyum", with the irony being that many whites view Sterling as inferior due to his White-Jewish ancestry.....the sickness of Racism/White-supremacy.

    Also everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

    50 stressed in this interview that, "there are other people like" and "don't embarrass me". This is cue that there are more and more Donald Sterlings out there, y'all don't get it. When 50 lost his lawsuit for sleek audio, he claimed the judge was racist. Do u think he'll support a racist then, he didn't even support him.

    This is just too funny. Hello people! If you live in America and work for any corporation, you are working for a racist. Stop pretending that we all don't know this already. All these rappers that have record deals are all signed to 3 major companies in the end. Universal, Sony, Warner Bros. You don't think the owners of these companies are not racist? Then apparently you never watched any Hollywood films.

      "In every interview 50 talks about ppl to stay relevant. It's never about his music or who produced what." Are you admitting to watching EVERY 50 interivew? If you did you would know it's pretty common in all interviews to ask your subject their opinions on current events. You would also know that websites like this only take the controversial headlines and bits of interviews and usually ignore everything about his albums unless he is talking about someone else.

      it brought fed attention to Supreme when he was trying to create a movie company read about it. and during the beef with Ja Rule and Murder Inc 50 said they were getting extorted by Preme. that brought feds to Murder Inc and destroyed their company and Ja Rule's career because they had to pay for legal fees to stay out of prison. Preme went to jail for life and 50 blew up after the their botched hit to shut his loud ass up

      Preme got life in prison for the murder for hire of Eric E-Money Bags and another cat. That was not mentioned anywhere in Ghetto Quaran and happened much later. Preme was walking around free for years after that song because it was all old news you could hear read about in the papers or Don Diva magazine.

    Sterling's confidence was indeed betrayed. Moreover his side-bitch probably broke laws recording their private conversation without his consent. Having said that, unless she was acting in a professional capacity to Sterling that binds her to confidentiality rules (e.g., therapist) or is otherwise bound by confidentiality rules, she is free to discuss their conversation with whoever the fuck she wants to. On a final note, this nigga Curtis is scared to death someone is going to do the same shit to him LOL! He's scared that a nigga is going to do him the way he did Buck. In fact a lot of you bitch ass niggas are scared. Yall' talk reckless to women and expect no retaliation? Fuck outta here. And don't give me that bullshit privacy argument. If you humiliate bitches, expect to get your ass busted. Period.

The Donald Sterling thing is old news, and here 50 is bringing it up again for some promotion.

But now he's just irrelevant and nobody is looking forward to his new album. I'm not impressed.

    Snoop has smoked his brain cells out. Sterling was talking about Magic Johnson, and his hate towards the Los Angeles Lakers, something which has been alive for decades.

    50 Cent is a Black version of Donald Sterling. Sterling is a known racist slum-lord who underpaid his Black employees for years. 50 Cent secretly recorded conversations with Young Buck just like Sterlings mistress so he should know a thing or too about Betrayl.

      HAHA. 50 Cent was the nigga that was feeding Buck's family until he blew all his paper on chains, cars and drugs. That was never 50 cent intentions when he recorded that business conversation with Buck and the lawyers but Buck bit the hand that was feeding him, therefore he destroyed his own ability to feed his family and provide his children with a Song Playstation.

    House Negros come in different shapes,shades and people. Isnt this the same fool who dissed Obama just to please a FOX news reporter? Regardless of if Sterling was set up or not...what he said was wrong. For a man in his position who has loads of black people working for him and making him billion of $$$$ he shouldn't b saying things like that. 50 is such an idiot. This is the kind of fool that will kill a fellow black man just to please his master. How can this fool defend sterling? Sterling girlfriend was half-black and half-mexican-> the two races he hates the most. So i dont get how he can be in love with her. Secondly Sterling seems to be OK with "Blacks if they are light-skined" or of mixed race with "White". So if u lighter in complexion he is cool with u; but aint Latinos much more lighter in complexion to blacks? If the dark skin is the problem why hate on Latinos? They are close to white in complexion. So this racism shit is too conflicting; I dont get it-seriously. And i get mad when fools like 50 cent try to defend an old racist fool in the hope of getting a favor from them. But what do u expect,Curtis is a retard. Isnt this the same Curtis who was called a "Pin-Head" by Bill O'Reilly and he couldnt reply back to Bill the same way he has replied to other blacks who dissed him publicly? Stupid house Negro.

      Actually, everyone with a brain understands exactly what hes saying here, hes putting himself in sterlings shoes and sees it from his perspective, not following the concept of black or white thinking. The easiest way of not having to answer to a statement is saying that you dont understand it, and saying that you dont understand it because the person talking cant communicate properly. Thats a "suppression technique" suppression techniques used in trying to make a point is usually a sign of not having anything factual to say. Therefore you're trying to lower the other persons credibility so his words means less. Same thing as being a grammar nazi, just more cleverly disguised.
