Charles Barkley has spoken.
Charles Barkley has a message for his haters.
The TNT analyst hopped on the mic at an Atlanta nightclub Tuesday night and threw some f-bombs at his critics, which probably wont do much to calm the chaos of the last few days.
LeBron James ripped Barkley earlier this week the final straw in a long-standing feud between the two but Barkley is sticking to his comments that set off the Cleveland Cavaliers All-Star in the first place.
So, after wishing everyone a good night at Atlantas Koo Koo Room and dropping into one of his favorite songs, he said: “For all you fucking haters, fuck y’all!”
The Barkley-James quarrel is long and convoluted, but here’s the gist. Last week, Barkley called James “whiny” for wanting better players on his team’s bench. Having been subject to Barkley’s constant scrutiny over the years, James finally fired back on Monday, unleashing a series of personal attacks on the NBA Hall-of-Famer.
Many echoed James’ comments, including 12-time All-Star Dwayne Wade and retired NBA player Charles Oakley, who said Barkley should “stop drinking at work.“
I love everything LeBron James said about the hater he need to stop drinking at work. TNT can I stop by and get a drink

And this isn’t the first time Barkley’s outrageous comments have come under fire. He said the Warriors play “little girly basketball” in December. He called the women of San Antonio Texas a “gold mine for Weight Watchers” a couple years back. Those, along with his comments about “unintelligent black people,” have predictably caused an uproar.
If simple “fuck y’all” doesn’t mend relationships with all those haters, who knows what will?
