Gilbert Arenas Is Catching Hell for Asking If Anyone Can Name a Beautiful Black Woman With 'African Features'?

"Not brown skin...but Tyrese black," the former NBA All-Star said.

Gilbert Arenas is catching all kinds of hell on social media right now for taking to his Instagram account and asking, "Can you name a beautiful black woman on the outside? Not brown skin ... like Tyrese black."

The former NBA All-Star made his comment, sliding into the post of an IG account called "Problkthought," which stated, "Your African features are all you need for attractiveness. Never tell yourself or let anyone tell you that in order to be attractive you must be mixed."

And this fool actually had the nerve to say Lupita Nyong'o is "cute when the lights are off."

Shaking our heads...

Arenas later apologized to "all shades of Black women," but by then Twitter and IG were done with him.

Here's No Chill Gil's full statement followed by how social media blasted him for his ridiculous, blasphemous thoughts and the people not here for his apology. Somebody at Instagram needs to shut down his account for good.
