He means it...
The police officer form the Village People says that the Los Angeles Clippers aren't allowed to play any of their songs anymore. As you probably know by now, Clippers owner Donald Sterling is under fire from pretty much everyone after an audio tape leaked of him in an argument with girlfriend V. Stiviano over the fact that she posted an Instagram picture of Magic Johnson and herself, prompting Sterling to go on a racist rant. The NBA is investigating and President Obama condemned the tape.
Now, Village People member Victor Willis tells TMZ that he owns the rights to "Y.M.C.A." and other iconic Village People song and says he's banning Sterling from playing them. His rep told the site that he's serious and will be sending an official cease and desist notice on Monday morning.
