On NBA on TNT, the hall of famer stated her death shouldn’t be grouped with the likes of George Floyd or Ahmaud Arbery, because it was her boyfriend who caused her death by shooting at police.
“I don’t think this one was like George Floyd or Ahmaud Arbery and things like that,” Barkley began. “I feel sad that this young lady lost her life. I think this one was — the no-knock warrant is something we need to get rid of … across the board. But I am worried to lump all these situations in together.”
He continued, “And I just feel bad that the young lady lost her life. But we do have to take into account that her boyfriend shot at the cops and shot a cop. So like I say, even though I am really sorry she lost her life, I just don’t think we can put this in the same situation as George Floyd or Ahmaud Arbery.”
Stephen Jackson heard those comments and promptly fired back at him.
