Village People Lead Singer Bans Clippers From Playing ‘Y.M.C.A.’

Racist remarks allegedly made by Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling have resulted in a trimmed-down set-list for the Staples Center’s DJ.

The lead singer of the Village People, Victor Willis, tweeted Sunday night that he is banning the Clippers from playing his band’s stadium staple “Y.M.C.A” — or any other Village People tunes — during home games.

A representative for Willis confirmed to TMZ that the singer is, in fact, serious about his threat and plans to send an official notice to Sterling on Monday.

Willis is just one of many high-profile public figures who have spoken out against the 80-year-old owner and business magnate since TMZ released a phone recording Friday of a man identified as Sterling making racially insensitive comments in a conversation with his girlfriend.

As a statement against their owner, the Clippers wore their warmups inside out before their playoff game against the Golden State Warriors on Sunday.
