Gilbert Arenas shot himself in the foot with this one.
The retired NBA star took to his Instagram account on Tuesday and posted an image of two scantily-clad models playing basketball, saying this is what the WNBA should look like.
"NOW this is what America was hoping for when they announced the #WNBA back in 1996...not a bunch of chicks running around looking like cast members from #orangeisthenewblack," Arenas wrote, referring to the television about women in prison.
He wasn't done expressing his views about the WNBA, though.
"Dont get me wrong, they have few #cutiepies but theres a whole alotta #beanpies running around," Arenas continued. "If Skylar Diggins came out like this, I dont care if she missed every layup... imma buy season tickets and I dont even know where the f**k #tulsa is."
Good lord, Gilbert.
Seemingly knowing he's going to get backlash for these sentiments, Arenas even wrote: "If u think this is sexist, 9 times out of 10 u the ugly one and we didnt pay to come see u play anyway."
Arenas's dragging on social media was in full force Wednesday, as fans ripped him right and left for his comments.
WNBA star Swin Cash even tweeted:
