Charles Barkley mocks Jussie Smollett over alleged crime
Charles Barkley made a mockery of the Jussie Smollett situation during a segment on TNT Thursday night.
During halftime of the Los Angeles Lakers-Houston Rockets game, the TNT crew was talking about some of their more ridiculous predictions that had no chance of happening. That’s when Barkley went off-script and said “two black guys beating a black guy up,” — a reference to the Smollett matter.
Smollett, an actor, has been charged with disorderly conduct for staging a beating against him that he claimed was rooted in racism and homophobia. Barkley continued to go off on Smollett over the incident, mocking the actor for allegedly paying the two men by check, among other things. Stay for the end with the Liam Neeson joke.

That, my friends, is why Barkley makes the big bucks.
