Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling has had a tough week. On Tuesday he was banned from all NBA activities by commissioner Adam Silver for racist comments. On Thursday he was banned from Nevada’s Bunny Ranch.
Dennis Hof, who owns the Bunny Ranch near Carson City and six other brothels in the state, has banned Sterling for life.
The Huffington Post first reported the story, quoting Hof: “A lot of NBA players come here to party. Out of respect for them, we have banned Sterling from coming here.”
“At any given time, 20 to 23 percent of the prostitutes here are African-American,” Hof said. “And they’re smoking hot. Some of them were crying this morning so we’re doing this for them as well. We don’t need racists or bigots at the Bunny Ranch.”
Hof would not say if Sterling ever visited his brothels, but did say, “I can tell you this: Johnny Buss, one of the owners of the Los Angeles Lakers, and I have had a duel birthday party at the Bunny Ranch for the last 18 years, so a lot of NBA people have been here.”
Hof has banned other celebrities from his brothels as well.
“We banned the ‘Duck Dynasty’ guys. Those guys are the biggest homophobic (expletive) and they make their living killing animals. We’ve also banned Michael Vick. We don’t want him here. I couldn’t guarantee his safety from the girls. They love animals.”
The New York Daily News reported Hof is looking to form a consortium of hookers and fat cat clients to buy the team.
“I think the notion of an embattled team like the Clippers being rescued from the clutches of a hateful racist by a multi-ethnic collection of successful business women is just what the NBA needs to improve the tarnished image of the franchise,” Hof said.
Sterling’s comments, recorded by girlfriend V. Stiviano were given to TMZ.
“How about your whole life, every day, you could do what you want? You can sleep with (blacks), you can bring them in, you can do whatever you want,” Sterling said.
“The little I ask you is not to promote it and not bring them to may games,” he said.
Speaking of Magic Johnson, Sterling said, “Don’t put him on an Instagram for the world to have to see so they have to call me. And don’t bring them to my games, OK?”
President Obama was asked about Sterling’s comments and replied, “When ignorant folks want to advertise their ignorance, you don’t really have to do anything, you just let them talk.”
