“A lot of NBA players come here to party,” Hof told The Huffington Post. “Out of respect to them, we have banned Sterling from coming here.”
Hof says his sense of confidentiality prohibits him from confirming or denying if Sterling has ever visited his brothels.
“I can tell you this: Johnny Buss, one of the owners of the Los Angeles Lakers, and I have had a dual birthday party at the Bunny Ranch for the last 18 years, so a lot of NBA people have been here,” he said.
Hof’s stand against Sterling isn’t only in support of the basketball players who’ve had to deal with the billionaire’s alleged racism over the years.
“At any given time, 20 to 23 percent of the prostitutes here are African-American,” Hof said. “And they’re smoking hot. Some of them were crying this morning so we’re doing this for them as well. We don’t need racists or bigots at the Bunny Ranch.”
On the other hand, Hof’s says Sterling’s ex-girlfriend V. Staviano, now has a free lifetime pass saying “She needs to meet some women who can satisfy her more than any man could.”
The “Duck Dynasty guys” and Michael Vick have also been banned from the Bunny Ranch and its subsidiaries.
