On his website, he has posted a “Rant and Rave” video railing about Twitter and Facebook.
“Tweet is for losers. And what I mean by that, if you wake up in the morning and you’re worried about what I’m doing, you a damn idiot. You are a damn idiot. I don’t feel the need to put every thought that comes in my head out to the world. I don’t feel that. And I hope nobody wakes up in the morning and says let me follow Charles Barkley for the day.”
Even though “Rant and Rave” come with a Facebook tag he isn’t buying in.
“I’m not trying to keep up with people from my past. I’m running from them.”
Charles also spoke his mind about the NBA lockout..
Charles Barkley says he won’t take his TNT paycheck while the NBA remains in lockout mode, which could be good news for some charity.
“I don’t think it’s cool for me to take money I haven’t earned,” Barkley told ESPN 1000 in Chicago. “My decision is either going to be defer it or give it to charity.”
Barkley is among those who predict the NBA’s labor war ultimately will lead to canceling the entire season, which would mean he won’t be at the TNT desk with Ernie Johnson, Kenny Smith and Shaquille O’Neal.
“The problem I have is if these guys hold out all season, it’s going to be a lot of money,” Barkley told ESPN 1000. “That’s why I have to make that decision. I haven’t made the final decision.”
Barkley also backed David Stern, and said it’s important that the NBA’s commissioner is standing up for small-market teams that are losing money.
“That’s what this thing is about,” Barkley said. “They’re not going to let just the big markets dominate like they do in baseball.”
Do you agree with Charles Twitter rant?
