Chuck is always making fun of fat women in San Antonio. Check out the video below.
Well, they are fed up now (no pun intended).
“Making slurs about body size is just as offensive as making comments about body color,” spokesperson Peggy Howell tells TMZ Sports.
“One would think being a black man, he’d be more sensitive to having his physical body criticized. It’s totally out of line. He should absolutely apologize.”
The President of the Obesity Action Coalition has also issued a statement expressing “extreme disappointment” with Charles.
“As a former NBA player and sports entertainment figure, Mr. Barkley should encourage equality and respect among society and not look to shame or segment one population because of their size.”
“Obesity is a serious medical condition and not a joking matter.”
I don’t think calling someone fat is the same as a racial slur if in fact they are fat. It is like calling someone ugly, if they really are ugly. It isn’t the nicest thing to do, but it isn’t a slur.
Chuck is pretty husky himself, but I don’t think they will get their apology.
