Former Auburn basketball player and Alabama Sports Hall-of-Famer Charles Barkley had a strong message last weekend while on stage at the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship Tournament in Lake Tahoe, Nevada.

Barkley sent a direct message of support to the gay and transgender community and doubled down by sending an aggressive message to those who may discriminate against the LGBTQ community.

The TNT analyst has been known to vocalize his opinions on anything that comes to his mind, whether it be about NBA players, Bryan Harsin, golf, gambling or societal issues.

Barkley's firm comments to the LGBTQ community have been under fire this month as the "Round Mound of Rebound" is considering making a career change. Barkley has allegedly been approached by the organizers of LIV Golf to join the tour as a commentator.

The LIV Tour is financed by the Public Investment Fund, the sovereign wealth fund of Saudi Arabia. The Saudi Arabian government is notorious for its persecution of the LGBTQ community as same-sex marriage is illegal.

It will be interesting to see where Barkley takes his career but for now he has made his stance toward the LGBTQ community crystal clear.
