Jade Scipioni, writing at CNBC, reports on the comments from Charles Barkley, a guy who famously said he wasn’t a role model.
“Yes, I’m vaccinated,” says NBA legend Charles Barkley. “Everybody should be vaccinated. Period.”
“The only people who are not vaccinated are just assholes,” he says.
The 58-year-old NBA Hall-of-Famer says he personally thinks sports leagues should force players to get vaccinated. “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 bullshit,” Barkley says. “I think that would be tragic.”
Well, he’s not wrong. Vaccine mandates are the only solution that will work.
