Charles Barkley Says Weight Watchers Biggest Scam Ever [Video]

Rucuss staffJanuary 6, 2012

Charles Barkley has been a sports analyst for quite some time now, but he still has no clue about audio.

In a video posted on YouTube, Barkley is captured chatting with other TNT announcers during a commercial break of Thursday’s game between the Miami Heat and the Atlanta Hawks. Barkley called his new gig as a spokesperson for Weight Watchers a scam, and had some harsh words for the Hawks. It is definitely worth a watch.

Here’s what he said about Weight Watchers, it is obvious Barkley didn’t know his mic was live at the time.

“I’ve been on weight watchers three months.I have to lose two pounds a week. I’m at 38 pounds now. They come and weigh me every two weeks. I ain’t never missed a weigh-in. Never going to.

I’m feeling much better. But I ain’t giving away no money… I’m not giving away no free money. I thought this was the greatest scam going— getting paid for watching sports — this Weight Watchers thing is a bigger scam.”

To be fair, these comments were not much different from what Barkley said on the air. He joked about drinking beer during a trip to New York to host Saturday Night Live this past weekend.

When announcer Kevin Harlan questioned whether drinking beer was part of the Weight Watchers diet, Barkley laughed it off, saying that light beer was definitely OK. He seemed convinced that Weight Watchers was working, saying he had lost 38 pounds and felt better physically.

We’re guessing Weight Watchers will let Barkley make it this time. His comments probably won’t hurt sells. He does look a lot smaller. Check out the video below.
