Here we go again. More buffoonery and coonery. Former NBA player Gilbert Arenas is known more for putting his foot in his mouth than his basketball skills as of late. This buffoon has said some outlandish things in the past. But this time he’s taken his self-hating buffoonery to new heights! Arenas said that actress Lupita Nyongo was not cute. No big deal right? All men don’t have to think the same women are attractive. He could’ve said he thought actress Gabrielle Union or Tika Sumpter were prettier. That’s fine…I could respect that. But it’s what he said after that. He got into a debate with a pro-black Instagram user.
Here’s what he said:
“How black are we talking??? Not to be funny can u name a beautiful black women on the outside … not brown skin … like tyrese black,” he responsed, “top 50 most beautiful women off [sic] all time … the darkest women they have is (Keshia Knight Pulliam aka Rudy) (Gabrielle Union) (Taral Hicks) (Serena Williams).”
Gilbert continued to broadcast his ignorance and targeted Lupita next. “When u say African features black then u have (#1 Lupita Nyong’o) and she’s cute when the lights are off second is (Ajuma Nasenyana),” he wrote, adding that dark skin disgusts him. “Sorry but ewww so the black beautiful women u try to boost up is technically light skinned or brown skinned.”
Then, when he realized that he misunderstood ProBlkThought, he gave a the sorriest half-apology for what he said.
“I never say sorry for the sh*t I say but it’s my fault I read this wrong and got into my feelings,” he admitted. “I thought it was saying,if ur mixed ur not considered black and beautiful and my kids are mixed and dark skinned so I perceived it how I wanted to.”
So basically he doesn’t think dark skinned women are attractive. What a big surprise coming from a self hating coon! But since is ex-wife is funny looking half black/Mexican Laura Govan this type of mentality should be expected. Gilbert Arenas is a certified coon. End of story!
