Carmax to Pull Sponsorship in Wake of Donald Sterling Comments

According to Darrell Rovell of ESPN.com, CarMax has ended their sponsorship with the Los Angeles Clippers in wake of the Donald Sterling racist allegations.

Withdrawing their sponsorship, CarMax had this so say on the matter.

“The statements attributed to the Clippers’ owner (are) completely unacceptable.”

Based on how companies react to issues such as this, CarMax won’t be the only business to separate themselves from Donald Sterling by way of disconnecting any relationship they hold with the Los Angeles Clippers. According to multiple sources, State Farm is also pondering whether the company should pull their sponsorship from the team.

Despite being a multimillionaire, this is the best way to get him to see how big of a matter this is, by hitting him in the pockets. Surely enough, as more information comes depicting Sterling as a blatant racist, more companies will pull their deals with the Clippers. It seems inevitable at this point.

UPDATE:

Add Virgin America, Aqua Hydrate, and KIA to the list of companies that have ended their relationship with the Clippers.
