Classic Rock KISS/San Antonio's The Billy Madison Show issued a challenge to Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling. The Billy Madison Show has offered up a $10,000 challenge to Mr. Sterling. The challenge is to fly to San Antonio to apologize live in studio to America for being a racist and submit to a spanking by an African American man “who is a friend of Madison’s.” After they videotape the apology and punishment, they will hand over a check for $10,000. If Sterling responds, the Billy Madison Show will announce the agreed upon date and time that Sterling will take his punishment.
