Dave Chappelle Defends Donald Sterling

"I don't think he should have lost his team," the comedian said.

Veteran comedian Dave Chappelle is no stranger to ruffling some feathers and his recent opinions on Donald Sterling proves just that. In his cover story for the 2014 Men of the Year issue of GQ Magazine, Chappelle stated that Sterling should not have been stripped of his ownership of the Los Angeles Clippers.

"Ultimately, I don't think he should have lost his team," he said. "I don't like the idea that someone could record a secret conversation and that a person could lose their assets from that, even though I think what he said was awful."

Sterling was banned from the NBA for life after a racist conversation was leaked between him and V. Stiviano. "When you think about the intimacy of a situation, like, can a man just chill with his mistress in peace?" Chappelle said jokingly.

The sketch comedy icon also talks about his long-running Chappelle's Show, celebrity life, and his personal selfie collection featuring the likes of Beyoncé, Jay Z, Kanye West and Jessica Alba.
