Charles Barkley Goes on Smollett Rant

Former NBA player and current host Charles Barkley is making news about his recent take on the situation revolving around the Jussie Smollett hoax.

According to The Daily Wire:

On TNT’s “Halftime Report” Thursday night, co-host Charles Barkley left co-host Shaquille O’Neal pleading with him to stop after Barkley’s comments on the Jussie Smollett fiasco had O’Neal practically gasping for air from laughing so hard. Barkley referenced the evidence that Smollett had written a check to the two Nigerian brothers allegedly involved in the attack on him as well as actor Liam Neeson’s admission that years ago he had gone looking for a black man to hurt after a friend of his alleged she had been raped by a black man.

Co-host Kenny Smith asks: Ernie, what’s the most ridiculous one over there that’s still living that you would say has no chance of happening?

Barkley answers from the host’s table: Two black guys beating a black guy up.

Barkley: Do not commit crimes with checks — (Shaq loses it again) C’mon, man, If you’re going to break the law, do not write a check. (Shaq is laughing so hard he’s throwing his head back)

Shaq who is exhausted from laughing begs Barkley to stop but it seems that the host was having too much fun.
