So Donald Sterling didn’t want his girlfriend to take Instagram photos with black people? Well, late-night host Arsenio Hall is having some fun with that.

On Monday, Hall urged his fans not to get mad but to “get even” with the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers, banned from the NBA for life on Tuesday.

Bringing out a giant cardboard cut-out of Sterling, Hall said: “If Donald Sterling was upset that his girlfriend was being Instagrammed with black people, imagine how upset he would be if there were pictures of HIM on Instagram with black people.”

He urged viewers to create their own Sterling selfies by going to his website,

and downloading the photo of the disgraced NBA owner. "Be creative!” he urged.

Using the hashtag #SterlingSelfie, people are already posting their pics on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

Hall couldn’t help but take one direct shot at the Clippers owner: “Now I know why it's so hard to get good chicken wings at a Clipper game.”
