No Chill Chuck: Charles Barkley Roasts Jussie Smollett On ‘Inside The NBA’

Charles Barkley on Jussie Smollett'America do not commit crimes with checks

Empire star Smollett has been charged with felony disorderly conduct for filing a false report after alleging staging a racist and homophobic attack.

However this didn't stop Barkely from joking about the case during the halftime segment of Thursday's Rocket-Lakers game.

During banter with Shaquille O'Neil, Kenny Smith and Ernie Johnson at halftime of the Rockets-Lakers game, the outspoken Hall of Famer offered his take on possible National Basketball Association scenarios that had no chance of happening.

His major piece of advice to Jussie and the rest of America: "Do not commit crimes with checks".

Barkley's comment about Neeson was a reference to the actor's recent claims that he stalked African-Americans neighborhoods in England decades ago seeking retribution after a female friend told him she had been raped by a black person. "If you break the law, do not write a check". I remember when he was on the US Olympic "Dream Team" in the early 1990s, and a TV reporter asking him about their first round opponent, Zimbabwe: "Charles, what do you think about Zimbabwe's team?"

Jussie Smollett suspended from Empire TV show
They did not reveal whether or not they believe Smollett's innocence, but said the allegations against him are "disturbing". He also tweeted that Smollett had insulted "MAGA and tens of millions of people" with racist and risky comments.

Chelsea banned from signings until summer 2020 window
The club have been granted 90 days where they must rectify the situation with regards to any player signed. The ban does not apply for Chelsea's women's team and the club can still release or sell players.

Smollett, who was also asked to surrender his passport, is scheduled for his next hearing on March 14. 'No.' What colour were they? "You know what you should've did?"

Barkley's remarks about Smollett, checks, MAGA hats and, eventually, Liam Neeson flustered Ernie Johnson and reduced Shaquille O'Neal to a coughing mess.

A judge set bail at $100,000 and ordered the actor to surrender his passport.

News dropped on Thursday afternoon that Empire actor Jussie Smollett had been arrested by the Chicago Police Department.
