#BoycottClippers has become the rallying cry for people on social media following the revelation of Clippers owner Donald Sterling asking his younger girlfriend to not bring black men to basketball games.
Needless to say, Twitter has not been kind to Sterling and is now calling for people to boycott the Clippers and are using #BoycottClippers as their rallying cry. Here are a few of the angry/poignant/thought-provoking comments emanating from Twitter users who are jumping on the #BoycottClippers bandwagon:

Hard to tell yet what the #BoycottClippers movement will do to Donald Sterling and the Clippers, but there certainly is going to be some fallout.
