It’s never a good idea to attack someone’s husband or wife right in front of them, and Charles Barkley learned that lesson the hard way last week when Gabrielle Union blasted him for criticizing her husband, Dwyane Wade.
The drama all began during a recent episode of “Inside the NBA,” when Barkley claimed that Wade didn’t deserve to be on the All-Star team.
“Dwyane’s great, [he’s] a Hall of Famer, but he didn’t deserve to make the All-Star team.” He added, “Dwyane Wade is not having an All-Star year.”
Well, when Union got wind of Barkley’s comments, she wasn’t too happy and she proceeded to blast Barkley online for insulting her husband.
Read her scathing response to Barkley, as well as his response to her, after the cut.

“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.”

“Well she could have been. 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 [sic] people who’s going to turn the other cheek. You say something bad about me, I’m going to say something about you.”
