(SNews) – Sportscaster Charles Barkley has provoked a furious backlash after he blasted conservatives boycotting Bud Light over its “woke” agenda as “rednecks or a*sholes.”
A video has been spreading on social media showing retired NBA superstar and current “Inside the NBA” host mocking the boycotts during a recent public appearance.
At the American Century Celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe, Barkley made his opinion known about Bud Light amid the Dylan Mulvaney controversy.
The beer giant has been pummeled with boycotts ever since it decided to launch a partnership with transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney in late March.
Formerly the top-selling beer in the United States, Bud Light has since then lost that spot.
Sales have plummeted and billions of dollars have been wiped from the company’s value.
However, Barkley isn’t letting go of his Bud Light.
In fact, he’s got a blunt message for those who are: “F*ck y’all.”
At the golf tournament in Lake Tahoe, Barkley got on stage and spoke to the crowd.
For some reason, he declared his support for Bid Light and blasted the boycotters.
“I’m gonna buy some drinks for y’all,” said Barkley.
“And I’m gonna buy Bud Light.
“And I’m gonna tell y’all something: All you rednecks or a*sholes who don’t want to drink Bud Light, f*ck y’all.
“Hey, y’all can’t cancel me.”
“I ain’t worried about getting canceled.
“Because let me tell you something, if y’all fire me and give me all that money, I’m gonna be playing golf every f*cking day.
“As I said last night, if you’re gay, God bless you.
“If you’re trans, God bless you.
“If you have a problem with them, f*ck you.”

While it’s unclear what provoked the outburst, Barkley made similar comments in another speech the night before.
“I want y’all to drink this f*cking beer,” Barkley said.
“I got three cases of Bud Light.
“And I want to say this: If you’re gay, bless you. If you’re transgender, bless you.
“And if you have a problem with that, f*ck you.”
