Tank Refuses To Sing National Anthem During Game After Racist Comment

Posted April 28th, 2014 @ 6:18pm

Support for Los Angeles is still there however sponsorships and people of all over the globe have decided to put endorsements on pause until further notice.

R&B singer Tank was scheduled to sing the national anthem during Tuesday's game, but after learning about what Sterling had said about "black" people, he has decided to drop out at the last minute.

Tank does not want to support the owner of the team saying:

 "As an African American man and artist, I must take a stand on a matter that is so deeply personal to me." 

"In light of the recent disturbing and offensive allegations, in good conscience, I cannot move forward with my scheduled appearance at Tuesday's Los Angeles Clippers game."

Tank will not be performing with any other sports teams until the investigation is finalized.
