(WSCR) Charles Barkley has made a nice broadcasting career from his off-the-wall comments.

Now, however, he has some interesting thoughts on what should happen to some NBA fans.

“Fans, man, they love their team and their player,” Barkley told CBS Sports’ Jim Rome. “They don’t want to hear any criticisms. They just want you to be 100 percent for their team period. I think it’s only a small faction. I think 80 percent are great. Twenty percent, I wish you could take them out back and just shoot them.”

After Barkley made the comments, Rome gave him a chance to take it back, but Barkley wasn’t budging.

“No, I meant that Jim,” he said. “Eighty percent of the fans are fantastic. But 20 percent of them are so mean-spirited and say the most nasty things to you, because they know you can’t grab them.”
