Charles Barkley Calls His TNT Co-hosts A--holes On Live TV

Former NBA star Charles Barkley on Tuesday called his TNT co-hosts a--holes.

During the halftime show of the playoff game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Oklahoma City Thunder, a segment was aired featuring fans sending a video question to Barkley.

In this instance, a couple of young women asked, "Hi Charles, we were just wondering what do you like better: brunettes or blondes?"

What ensued will likely end up being another in a series of embarrassing vulgar episodes involving the outspoken Barkley (video follows with commentary, h/t Twitter's @ConservNewMedia):

For those not understanding why Barkley was likely embarrassed by the question, as NewsBusters previously reported, he was arrested for a DUI on December 31, 2008.

According to the police report, he told officers on the scene that he ran the stop light because he was in a hurry to pick up a girl to give him oral sex. 

Regardless, Barkley apparently apologized for his unfortunate choice of words later in the broadcast, but it will still be interesting to see how the folks at the FCC and TNT address this matter.

Stay tuned. 

*****Update: Kudos to the Enterprise Report for being first on this story.
