Charles Barkley does not have a filter, not even if he’s talking about good buddy Michael Jordan. In an interview this week, spotted by the folks at Sports Grid, Barkley said exactly how he felt about the mustache Jordan sports in the latest round of Hanes ads—you know, the Hitler ‘stache. “When I saw that commercial, I had to do a double take,” Barkley said. “I don’t know what the hell he was thinking.”

“That is one of the stupidest things that I have seen in a long time,” he continued. “I mean … when I am shooting the Taco Bell commercial, they have got this little woman making sure that every cinnamon twist and every piece of cheese is in order and now they let my man get on TV with that terrible mustache.” You can read extended quotes here, or download the audio file here.
