The estranged wife of Clippers owner Donald Sterling has joined in the the universal disgust over racist comments he made.

Shelly Sterling, who is still legally married to her husband, released a statement saying, "Our family is devastated by the racist comments made by my estranged husband. My children and I do not share these despicable views or prejudices." She adds, "We will not let one man's small-mindedness poison the spirit of the fans and accomplishments of the team in the city we love."

Shelly attended Sunday's playoff game against the Golden State Warriors and flew back to Los Angeles with the team. Donald Sterling was not there and has essentially been in hiding.
