Thanks To Cancel Culture, Charles Barkley’s Fun Is Over

Former Philadelphia 76ers star Charles Barkley has to table the fat jokes, thanks to heightened social sensitivities and looming cancel culture.

“They won’t even let me talk about San Antonio anymore! You know, when I’m always talking about them big ol’ women down in San Antonio?” Barkley told Grant Paulsen and Danny Rouhier on Monday’s “Grant and Danny” show on 106.7 The Fan. The comments came after Turner Network Television (TNT), Barkley’s network, put a stop to his jokes about San Antonio women, he said.

Barkley has been criticized for making jokes about overweight women in San Antonio in the past. To be fair, San Antonio was ranked among the fattest cities in the U.S., and Barkley routinely makes jokes about his own weight as well. But as he pointed out on Monday, Barkley hasn’t called anyone personally fat. Nevertheless, TNT has stifled Barkley’s jokes, to create a more “mindful” presence on the show.
