Barkley jabs San Antonio women again on 'Inside the NBA'

  Barkley jabs San Antonio women again on 'Inside the NBA' The NBA season is long and occasionally arduous, but that just makes "Inside the NBA" on TNT even more essential. 

Charles Barkley , known for his candor as an NBA player or a commentator on TNT’s hoops shows, came under scrutiny Tuesday night after an Axios reporter tweeted that he had told her , “ I don ’ t hit women , but if I did , I would hit you .” Alexi McCammond, who is covering the 2020 presidential race

Axios reporter Alexi McCammond tweeted on Tuesday night that Charles Barkley told her, “I don’t hit women, but if I did I would hit you.” McCammond claims that when she objected, the NBA legend and TNT analyst told her that she “couldn’t take a joke.”

In a follow-up tweet, McCammond explained that “it was all because [Barkley] came in talking about how he loves Deval Patrick, and once someone from Pete’s [Buttigieg] campaign came around he said he loved Pete and I reminded him he previously said he was a Deval fan.”

Giuliani was overheard saying, "You know Charles would have a hard time with a fraud case 'cause he didn't do any due diligence.

McCammond also provided a photo of Barkley at the campaign event.

So, this is definitely not okay and definitely not something to “joke” about. And as others have chimed in on Twitter, unacceptable comments about women are nothing new from Barkley.

Expect a statement soon from TNT/Turner Sports.

Opinion: Charles Barkley's 'joke' wasn't funny, and neither was his defense of it .
One in three female homicide victims is killed by an intimate partner, and domestic-related murders are rising after almost four decades of decline. There is an untold psychological toll for both abuse victims and their families, as well as an economic one. Each year, according to the NCADV, domestic violence costs the U.S. economy between $5.8 billion and $12.6 billion.So, no. Domestic violence, and the general health and safety of women, is not something that is ever funny. When women are very literally used as punching bags every day, making that abuse a punchline is simply obscene.
