Barkley: Ugly Women Have No Chance Of Getting TV Jobs In Sports

(WSCR) If you want the truth, just ask Sir Charles Barkley.

During a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, Barkely discussed a topic not often talked about in sports – discrimination against women sideline reporters.

“I will tell you one form of discrimination no one ever talks about regarding sideline reporters,” Barkley told the magazine. “If you are an ugly woman, you have no chance of getting a TV job.

“I will say this: They have hot, great-looking women on TV now. But if you are an ugly woman, you ain’t got no chance of getting a TV job.”
