The COVID-19 pandemic is still going on all around the world and it’s getting worse in some places. A vaccine exists, but some people have refused to take it. Charles Barkley has strong words for those people.

While talking to CNBC, Barkley unloaded on people who are not vaccinated. After saying that he is vaccinated, Barkley called people who are unvaccinated “assh*les” and then proceeded to dish on those who refuse a vaccination at this point.

“Yes, I’m vaccinated. Everybody should be vaccinated. Period.”

“The only people who are not vaccinated are just assh*les.”

“Can you imagine if one of these guys that are not vaccinated, if they get one of these players’ kids, wives, girlfriends, moms and dads sick and they die over some unnecessary conspiracy bullsh*t. I think that would be tragic.”

“There’s sh*t you can’t do at work and there’s sh*t that have to do at work. So every workplace has rules and I think one of the rules [should be] that guys have to be vaccinated.”

The subject of vaccination is certainly a controversial one for some people. There will always be those who would rather subscribe to conspiracy theories, but Sir. Charles would rather is people trust science in this instance.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
