Embattled Clippers owner Donald Sterling has apologized for making racist comments, CNN reports.

In a sit-down interview with CNN host Anderson Cooper set to air Monday night, Sterling expresses remorse, saying he made a "terrible mistake." CNN.com posted an excerpt of Sterling's remarks on its web site Sunday afternoon.

"I'm a good member who made a mistake and I'm apologizing and I'm asking for forgiveness," Sterling said, according to CNN.com. "Am I entitled to one mistake, am I after 35 years? I mean, I love my league, I love my partners. Am I entitled to one mistake? It's a terrible mistake, and I'll never do it again."

The CNN interview marks Sterling's most extensive comments yet on the scandal, which erupted two weeks ago after audio leaked of the Clippers owner scolding a female friend, V. Stiviano, for bringing African-Americans to his games and posting photos of African-Americans on her Instagram account.
