Even President Barack Obama is weighing in on Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling.
"When ignorant folks want to advertise their ignorance, you don't really have to do anything, you just let them talk. And that's what happened here," Obama said Sunday at a news conference with Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak, reports Sports Illustrated.
He continued: "The NBA is a league that is beloved by fans all across the country. It's got an awful lot of African-American players. It's steeped in African-American culture. And I suspect that the NBA is going to be deeply concerned in resolving this."
Sterling, who allegedly made racially charged comments in an audio recording obtained and released by TMZ, has also earned reactions from some of the biggest names in basketball.

It was heartwarming to hear NBA great Earvin "Magic" Johnson's recent words of support for his gay son "E.J." Earvin Johnson III, and now E.J. himself is speaking out on the subject of his personal life – and how it suddenly went public.
Since first going public about his sexuality earlier this month, Johnson went on to tell host Howard Bragman on the latest episode of the webcast Gwissues, that "for me it was really, I guess, surprising, because I didn't think it was going to be that big a deal, since I was out to my family and friends for at least five years now."
Still, stepping into the spotlight, "It was almost as if I was coming out of the closet again," Johnson said. "Reliving the experience has been both exciting and interesting."
