v. stivianoV. Stiviano the woman behind the leaked racist audio of former Clippers owner Donald Sterling was brutally attacked in New York City a couple days ago. A video was released of Stiviano herself making disparaging remarks about black people saying ”I don’t understand black people. You give them a little bit of money, they don’t know what to do with it.”
Stiviano filed a police report on Monday. According to CNN this is what happened:
Stiviano told police she was with her sister and a friend at Revel restaurant when a group at another table called her a prostitute and shouted slurs at her, the NYPD official said. Stiviano and her sister exchanged words with the group.
When Diorio now in custody allegedly put his cell phone near Stiviano’s face to snap a photo, she knocked the phone out of his hands and walked out of the restaurant, the police official said.
Stiviano told investigators that she and her sister were followed by the group as they walked to the Gansvoort hotel to hail a cab, the official said. Video obtained by police showed the women were followed by two men and a woman from outside the restaurant to the hotel.
Outside the hotel, the official said, Diorio allegedly directed more slurs at Stiviano, who got into a cab with her sister. One man held the cab door open, while the other yelled at her and punched her in the face. The man who held the door then spit at her, the official said.
Stiviano and her sister left the cab and got into a shoving match with the two men, the official said. Witnesses told police that Stiviano and the men were in a fighting stance when both men threw punches at her.
Two other men intervened and broke up the fight.
Dominick Dorio who surrendered earlier to the police, is facing charges of assault as a hate crime, assault, harassment and aggravated harassment. A witness provided police the name of one of the attackers, who was located in a Facebook photo of the group from Sunday.
