'Outnumbered' Roundup: Charles Barkley, Will Smith's Daughter Stir Up Controversy
Plus, California considers criminal charges for child bullies.
Today on Outnumbered, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Harris Faulkner, Kirsten Powers and Sandra Smith were joined by #oneluckyguy, Pete Hegseth. From a possibly over-reaching anti-bullying law, to Charles Barkley and Willow Smith controversies, the co-hosts had plenty opinions to share. Check out clips from today's hot topics below!
First, children in California could be charged with a misdemeanor before first grade. Officials in Carson, California are voting to proceed with an anti-bullying ordinance that would make it a misdemeanor to bully anyone from kindergarten up to age 25. Unlike the state penal code, it would not necessarily require a threat of physical harm.
“What happens if a child lies?” Harris Faulkner asked. “You’ve indicted the family in front of a whole community.”
Does the ordinance go too far? Watch the discussion below.
Former NBA star and Weight Watchers spokesman Charles Barkley is in hot water for remarks he made on air about women in San Antonio before a game in the city. In part of his comments, Barkley joked that San Antonio is a “gold mine for Weight Watchers.”
Kirsten Powers called the remarks “sexist” but Hegseth was on the other end of the spectrum deeming it funny.
Watch Barkley’s full comments below, and tell us if you think it was all in good fun or offensive.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, this one is giving people a lot to talk about. Will Smith’s 13-year-old daughter, Willow, posted an Instagram photo of herself lying in bed next to a bare-chested 20-year-old actor.
Her parents, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith have talked openly about their unique parenting style. In a TMZ interview, Jada defended her daughter. “There was nothing sexual about that picture or that situation. You guys are projecting your trash onto it, and you’re acting like covert pedophiles.”
Hegseth disagreed with her reaction to the picture. He said, “I just don’t have any tolerance with the underage stuff. [...] And for a parent to go out there and blame other people as opposed to pull her child aside and say 'you’re 13 years old, what are you doing laying in bed with a guy?'”
What do you think about the photo and the reaction it's garnering?
