V. Stiviano was so troubled by racially-charged comments made by her 81-year-old boyfriend Donald Sterling that she secretly recorded him and released the audio to the world. Her decision eventually led to the $2 billion sale of the Los Angeles Clippers and Sterling’s usurping of the nation’s “Most Hated Man” title.
So you’ll be absolutely shocked to learn a tape has surfaced of Stiviano saying some rather questionable things about black people. The footage is part of a 2011 reality television show pilot about gold diggers — a title she apparently has no problem accepting.

A few of her hotter takes:
– “I don’t understand black people. You give them a little bit of money, they don’t know what to do with it.”
– “[Black people] just act crazy … they’re like, ‘Yo, I wanna put extra rims on top of my rims. And my rims are gonna turn around. I’m gonna call them spinners.’”
As bad as these statements are, I think we can all agree the real monster here is that hat. That hat belongs in a fire.
Stiviano clearly never got around to discussing money management with her Instagram fan and titan of American history Magic Johnson. She probably could have learned a thing or two.
It’s difficult to say what will happen to Stiviano in the light of these regrettable comments. She’s already taken to wearing a welder’s mask in public.
But, hey, 15 minutes of fame for the wrong reasons is still 15 minutes of fame.
