Charles Barkley: Adrian Peterson case overblown, media hypocritical
TNT’s Charles Barkley joined the show to talk about Adrian Peterson being charged with negligence for beating his kids.
Barkley said that he thinks the charges against Peterson seem overblown. He said people aren’t perfect. Everyone makes mistakes. Barkley said he was raised like that. “I’m pretty sure my grandma, who was the greatest woman who ever lived, may have crossed the line at times.”
Barkley called out the media for hypocrisy, since Barkley said no one is perfect. Barkley said he gets frustrated because people on TV sound like they’ve never done anything wrong. He also says the media seems to only care when a famous person does something. “All these jackasses in the media go crazy when a celebrity does something wrong,” Barkley said.
