Charles Barkley Told He Can't Joke About Fat Women on 'Inside The NBA' Anymore
Charles Barkley says his days of mocking the “big ol’ women down in San Antonio” on TV are over … and he’s blaming cancel culture.
For YEARS, Barkley has talked about the “big ass women” of San Antonio on “Inside The NBA” … but has repeatedly said it’s just a joke, and he has nothing but love for his larger fans.
However, Charles says show producers have finally put the kibosh on the fat jokes — after a recent article on MySanAntonio.com took aim at Barkley and his “fat-shaming shtick.”
“They won’t even let me talk about San Antonio anymore,” Barkley said this week during an appearance on the “Grant & Danny” show on 106.7 The Fan.
“They’re like, ‘Charles, we got one lady wrote an article.’ I’m like first of all, I didn’t call anybody PERSONALLY fat in San Antonio. I was just joking around and when this one lady wrote this article … we’ve been having fun with this for probably 10, 15 years!”
Barkley says the outrage is a product of cancel culture — saying, “You can’t even have fun nowadays without these jackasses trying to get you canceled and things like that.”
The 58-year-old says he’s not too worried — because he plans on retiring in a few years anyway.
“I’m trying to hang on for another couple of years until I’m 60 and then they can kiss my ass.”
“I’m only working till 60 … I’ve already told ’em that. I’m not working until the day I die, that’s stupid. And, if I don’t have enough money by now, I’m an idiot anyway, so they should fire me anyway.”
