Lasorda comments about Stiviano cause more controversy for Clippers
Former Dodgers Manager Tommy Lasorda is facing a backlash after suggesting earlier this week on a Florida TV station that V. Stiviano, the woman in the middle of the Donald Sterling controversy, should be “hit with a car.” Some of those angered are asking the Dodgers organization to cut all ties with the legend.
Lasorda and L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling are longtime friends, about whom he said, “He hurt himself. By talking too much.”
“I don’t wish that girl any bad luck,” Lasorda said, “but I hope she gets hit with a car.”
Terry Cannon, executive director of the Baseball Reliquary, was so surprised by the remarks that he wrote an article for the LA Daily News in which he calls for the Dodgers to cut ties with Lasorda.
“Those kinds of public comments by an official of a storied franchise like the Dodgers is beyond reprehensible. They’re almost the kind of comments you’d expect to come from a lunatic,” Cannon said.
