Donald Sterling Backs Out Of Toy Drive

( 4UMF NEWS ) Donald Sterling Backs Out Of Toy Drive:

Donald Sterling pulled out of a charity toy drive in Watts Saturday night because his security team feared for his safety in the hood with racial tensions running so high across the country.

Sterling was scheduled to show up for something called the Chrismukkah Soiree "Party in the Projects." But a rep for the ex-owner of the Clippers tells us he abruptly canceled the story broke.

Apparently, Sterling wanted his appearance to be a surprise. We're told his security team was worried too many people knew where he was going to be and considering his track record with the black community things could go south quickly.

Donald's rep says he still donated a sedan-full of toys during a Friday night event held in a much more Sterling-safe environment: Beverly Hills.

L.A. City Councilman Joe Buscaino, who reps Watts, probably didn't help matters by coming on TMZ Live, and demanding Sterling stay away unless he's ready to donate much more than toys.
