Charles Barkley in trouble with Fat Acceptance groups over anti-obese comments

Published Add your comment

Charles Barkley has numerous times exclaimed the 'size of the woman' in San Antonio and this time it has got him in some trouble with two powerful obesity organisations who are calling for Sir Charles to apologise.

Once again on Inside the NBA on TNT, Barkley lashed out against the 'big woman' in the community of S.A. 

His exact comments were: "Some big ol' women down there ... that's a gold mine for Weight Watchers."

Barkley continued with his harsh statements as he also added: "Victoria is definitely a secret [in San Antonio] ... they can't wear no Victoria's Secret down there."

The comments have caused a stir and the National Association to Advance Fat Acceptance have immediately asked for a public apology from Chuck.

Peggy Howell who is a spokeswoman for the organisation recently told TMZ Sports: "Making slurs about body size is just as offensive as making comments about body color"

She continued by saying: "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."

No word has comeback from Barkley thus far but his opinion on the matter will surely be broadcast in the near future.
