Charles Barkley

I Refuse to Apologize

For Ripping Fat Women!

5/12/2014 5:39 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Charles Barkley says HELL WILL FREEZE OVER before he apologizes to the fat community for making fun of the large women of San Antonio ... claiming, "That's not gonna happen."

Barkley came under fire from MULTIPLE obesity organizations after he went on "Inside the NBA" and said S.A. is a "gold mine" for Weight Watchers because the women there are so huge. 

But last night, Sir Charles addressed the situation head on -- saying, "They want me to apologize? That's not gonna happen."

In fact, Charles doubled-down on the fat jokes ... and took even more shots ... telling his critics if they don't like what he's saying on the show, "Turn it off."

Big boned people .... your move.

Charles Barkley is making fun of the "plus size" women here in San Antonio. He may not think so, but these remarks are just as bad as the remarks that Donald Sterling made. Big women have feelings, they bleed just as he does, and the sad thing about is that he doesn't seem to care. I bet both he and ESPN would start to care if these "Big Women" would get together and file a law suit against them both. He sits up there and makes fun of "us" and goes on and on. BROTHER have you looked in the mirror lately. You ain't nothing to get excited about, and the funny thing is that you NEVER were. Money can buy you pretty women, looks etc, but truly if you keep up with these remarks you are going to end up a very lonely man (just like DS).

All these guys do is laugh at all the stupid things they say among eachother. I just watch the game if its on TNT and change the channel as soon as its over I listen to the comments on Sport center where they talk about the game

Good for Charles! I for one am sick of all of the "Fake" apologies. I don't hear anyone demanding apologies for the "Round mound of rebound"" nickname that Charles had to put up with as a player.
