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.
[Warning: Some tweets contain profanity].
And the Internet didn't hesitate blasting him for these comments.
Ethering a former NBA All-Star in 3, 2, 1...
Talk to him!
"I love my beautiful Black women." Did you hear that, Gil?
Savannah James is definitely a queen!
Some truth in this or nah?
He should be ashamed of himself.
Seriously, what was he thinking?
You buying this?
In other words, apology not accepted.
