Charles Barkley wasn't holding back when talking about comments Scottie Pippen made questioning his toughness and physique

Former NBA superstar and current TNT analyst Charles Barkley is never one to mince words, and his latest scathing attack is aimed squarely at Anti-Vaxxers. Last month Sir Charles made an appearance on CNBC and blasted people who refuse to get vaccinated for COVID-19.

“Can you imagine if one of these guys that are not vaccinated, if they get one of these players’ kids, wives, girlfriends, moms and dads sick and they die over some unnecessary conspiracy bullshit,” Barkley said. “I think that would be tragic.”

“There’s shit you can’t do at work and there’s shit that have to do at work,” he added. “So every workplace has rules, and I think one of the rules [should be] that guys have to be vaccinated.”

Charles was at it again while co-hosting “The Mike Missanelli Show” on Philadelphia’s 97.5 The Fanatic. Barkley questioned why some athletes are trying to question the vaccine.

“For us to be selfish and not trying to help the world get back where we can take these stupid masks off and go out to dinner in a full restaurant, I just think it’s selfish,” said Barkley, 58, who is fully vaccinated.

“I’ve heard these idiots talk about chips in it, and I heard people talking about [the government] wants to follow us around,” the basketball Hall of Famer added of conspiracy theories surrounding the shots. “They can follow us around anyway. Everybody got a cellphone. And first of all, what are you doing that you’re worried about people following you?”

Glad Charles is a voice that people actually stop and listen to.

Just imagine if he was Anti-Vaxx, he would be impossible to shut up.
