R&B singer Tank has joined the boycott against Donald Sterling refusing to honor his agreement to perform the National Anthem at Tuesday’s Clippers’ playoff game against the Golden State Warriors for Game 5.
 
“As an African American man and artist, I must take a stand on a matter that is so deeply personal to me,” he told TMZ.

Tank goes on, “In light of the recent disturbing and offensive allegations, in good conscience, I cannot move forward with my scheduled appearance at Tuesday’s Los Angeles Clippers game.” He adds that he won’t associate his brand with an owner who makes minorities unwelcome and makes a blanket statement saying that he won’t do anything for the entire NBA until the league completes its investigation.
