LOS ANGELES — Tank will no longer perform at the Los Angeles Clippers game Tuesday.
The 38-year-old R&B singer was scheduled to open the game with the national anthem, but announced Monday that he has chosen not to sing. His refusal is in protest of team owner Donald Sterling, who is accused of making racist comments in a conversation with mistress V. Stiviano.
