    The NBA All-Star asked: 'Who are Black people supposed to call Ghostbusters when we have crime in our neighborhoods?'

    Charles Barkley reacted to the Breonna Taylorindictment decision during a broadcast before an NBA playoff game on Thursday -- and also dismissed calls to defund the police.

    Barkley said on the “NBA on TNT” broadcast that Taylor’s death cannot be put in the same category as those of George Floyd or Ahmaud Arbery. Floyd was killed while in police custody in Minneapolis and Arbery was fatally shot while jogging in Georgia.

    “It’s bad this young lady lost her life,” Barkley said of Taylor. “But we do have to take into account that her boyfriend did shoot at the cops and shot a cop. So, like I say, even though I am really sorry she lost her life, I don’t think we can just say we can put this in the same situation as George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery. I just don’t believe that.”

    From what I understand Shaq joined Barkley in his criticism as well. Candace Owens was lauding them on Twitter for it.
