Charles Barkley is once again expressing his support for the LGBTQ movement.
In a recent incident at a bar during the American Century Celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe, the NBA Hall of Famer turned sports broadcaster was seen enthusiastically promoting Bud Light and advocating for acceptance of the LGBTQ community.
He defiantly addressed any critics who may take issue with his message, stating,
“If you’re gay, bless you, if you’re transgender, bless you. And if you have a problem with that, f— you!”

This isn’t the first time Barkley has spoken out in support of the LGBTQ community, as he delivered a similar message at Lake Tahoe last year, declaring, “If you’re gay and transgender, I love you. Hey, and if anybody gives you s—, you tell them Charles said, ‘F— you!'”
However, some NFL players, including Travis Kelce and George Kittle, have faced backlash for promoting Bud Light recently, as the brand hired trans influencer Dylan Mulvaney to promote their beer, leading to controversy and even a boycott.
Bud Light, once the best-selling beer in the United States for more than two decades, has experienced a significant decline in sales following the controversy, with a 29 percent drop in volume sold nationally compared to last year. Modelo Especial has since taken the top spot.
