Gabrielle Union isn’t your typical “basketball wife.” She goes hard in the paint for her Miami Heat ballin hubby, Dwyane Wade. So much so that she’s even hit the hardwood and interrupted one of his post-game interviews.
On Thursday, Charles Barkley rubbed the “Being Mary Jane” actress the wrong way when he said D. Wade “didn’t deserve to make the All-Star team” because “he is not having an all-star year.”
In case you missed it…watch below.
Gabby took to her Twitter page to fire a shot at Charles by asking fans to forgive him for his opinion (being as though he’s never won an NBA championship).
The tweet was brought to Charles’ attention during the live broadcast and anyone who knows Sir Charles Barkley KNOWS he wasn’t going to let it ride.
He clapped right back by saying, “Well listen, first of all…never mention you and Meryl Streep in the same sentence again. Meryl Streep would never be on Snakes On A Plane or Madea.”
When Kenny Smith tried to intervene and stop Charles from going all the way in, he responded, “I’ve seen her act, she could have been on Snakes On A Plane or Madea. She’s taking shots at me. She’s pretty, she’s very pretty. I’m not one of them people who’s going to turn the other cheek. You say something bad about me, I’m going to say something about you.”
Watch the clip below.
Kenny Smith was totally outdone by Charles going in. He told him several times that he was “out of order.” Shaq, on the other hand, seemed to enjoy every minute of it!
Do you think Gabrielle Union should defend her man or should she have some type of chill about herself and let D. Wade fight his own battles?
Oh, and congrats D. Wade for making the 2015 NBA All-Star team.
