R&B Singer Tank Refuses To Perform National Anthem at Clippers Game
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 04.28.2014



The racial tirade of Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling that was caught on tape is having continuing fallout from the world of entertainment. TMZ reports that R&B singer/songwriter Tank has revealed he is canceling his scheduled performance of the National Anthem for tomorrow's game in light of the scandal.

Tank issued a statement to the site that read, "As an African-American man and artist, I must take a stand on this matter that is so deeply personal to me. In light of the recent disturbing and offensive allegations, I cannot move forward with my scheduled appearance at Tuesday's Los Angeles Clippers Game.

Although I appreciate the opportunity to sing the national anthem at the game, I cannot associate my brand with an owner or event where African-Americans and other minorities are not welcome."

The controversy began when audio recordings of someone believed to be Sterling were released online, asking his girlfriend to stop posting pictures online of her with African Americans. The audio included Sterling saying, "You can sleep with (black people), you can bring them in, you can do whatever you want. The little I ask you is not to promote it…and not to bring them to my games."

Several sponsors have cut ties with the team and the Clippers players did a silent protest before Sunday night's game against the Golden State Warriors.
