San Antonio Women, NBA Star's Girlfriend Shame Charles Barkley For That 'Weight Watchers' Joke

Charles Barkley was on the receiving end of a good 'ol shaming.

After the "Inside the NBA" correspondent made an offensive remark about women in San Antonio, Barkley found himself in the eye of a storm of criticism.

It all started earlier this month when the retired NBA player called the city's women a "gold mine for Weight Watchers." To say the comment was not well received is an understatement, but, as USA Today notes, Barkley refused to apologize.

Now, with the "Inside the NBA" crew in town for the Western Conference Finals, the women of San Antonio are hitting back at Barkley for his careless jokes.

Vanessa Macias, basketball player Tim Duncan's girlfriend, showed up at the San Antonio Spurs vs. Oklahoma City Thunder game Monday and joined the protests against Barkley with a shirt that read, "Barkley Don't Know," the Big Lead reports.

Barkley replied in typical fashion saying: "That woman ain’t from here. They flew her in from Dallas."

Well, not exactly.
