State Farm pulls out



The fallout from Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling’s racist comments continues to loom large, and it has cost the team a very big sponsorship. On Monday, during an appearance on “The Herd” with Colin Cowherd, the CEO of State Farm appeared to discuss his company’s sponsorship of the Clippers.

As it turns out, State Farm will no longer serve as a sponsor for the team due to Sterling’s insensitive and unacceptable remarks.

Yes, that will likely mean no more “Cliff Paul.”

With the big decision by State Farm to distance themselves from Sterling and the Clippers organization, it would not be surprising to see more companies follow in their footsteps.

The Clippers will continue to deal with the negative backlash that was caused by their bigot owner, until the NBA and his fellow owners take a stand that could cost him the team.
