Here’s some irony: The L.A. branch of the NAACP was going to honor Clippers owner Donald Sterling with a SECOND Lifetime Achievement Award next month.

But now that audio of Sterling being racist has leaked all over the Internet, they’ve changed their minds. Yesterday, they Tweeted,  ”Sterling will NOT be receiving a lifetime achievement award.”

Sterling was first recognized back in 2009…just weeks after longtime Clippers general manager Elgin Baylor sued him for wrongful termination and discrimination on the basis of age and race.

At the time, the president of the L.A. NAACP said, “We can’t speak to the allegations, but what we do know is that for the most part [Sterling] has been very, very kind to the minority youth community.” (A jury later sided with Sterling.)
