Auto dealer CarMax pulled its sponsorship of the Los Angeles Clippers Monday in the wake of a firestorm of controversy over alleged racist remarks from team owner Donald Sterling. In a statement from CarMax spokeswoman Catherine Gryp:

CarMax finds the statements attributed to the Clippers’ owner completely unaccetable. These views directly conflict with CarMax’s culture of respect for all individuals. While we have been a proud Clippers sponsor for 9 years and support the team, fans, and community, these statements necessitate that CarMax end its sponsorship.
