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.

It's not that serious c'mon now lol Chuck was big and he changed that and got on aught watchers and lost his weight he's not skinny or fit fully but he's slimmer and healthier. If it offends people so much they should try and change it by eating better.and working out a little here and there to help better your health

Listen to me. my comment is the only one that matter.
you do not need to apologize. we need to lose weight and prove you wrong. So if they are offended by your truthful joke then lose weight or turn off the TV. :)
your a great person to listen to and keep the SA jokes coming. I am from SA and love my spurs! GO SPURS GO!!!!

Hmm he looks pretty fat himself I mean maybe he should join weight watchers first then tell the San Antonio Women who are over weight to try it. And its weird if he was a white 80 year old man who owned the Clippers they would take him off the show.

This is discrimination any way you slice it but the NBA is quiet because Barkley is black. Pathetic

Fire the bigot! Oh wait, I forgot, there's only a few groups that cannot be disrespected & women are fair game. Why is it that members of the groups that cannot be disrespected (& shouldn't be) seem to be so damn disrespectful themselves to others? Hypocrite!

I find Charles Barkley repulsive. Who in the hell can his ugly, fat and i'm sure stinky butt call someone anywhere in the world fat. He is uneducated and must have bought his degree. So in conclusion, whatever comes out of his mouth is dumb. He didn't complain when the Mayor took his fat butt to restaurants in San Antonio. He cheap butt is doing this for free food. Wherever he eat in San Antonio, I hope they remember how he dogs our city.
