T-Mobile Blows Off Charles Barkley

1/13/2009 3:53 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Charles BarkleyCharles Barkley must really be choking on his words now -- because T-Mobile is discontinuing its Sir Charles commercials due to his infamous DUI-for-the-sake-of-oral-sex fiasco.

A spokesperson for T-Mobile -- which features Barkley in its Fave 5 ads -- said: "Given the recent developments, for the time being, we've replaced TV ads featuring Mr. Barkley with more general-market advertising. As he works through his personal matters, we will evaluate where to go from here."

NOTE TO CHARLES: When cops tell you "everything you say can and will be held against you" -- that's a fancy way of saying "it's best if you shut your mouth."
