Gilbert Arenas is a renowned jackass. Despite being a somewhat good NBA point guard during the 2000s, he pretty much threw his career away after he brought handguns into the Washington Wizards locker room in December 2009. Now he’s been out of the league for three years, and trying desperately to hang on to whatever fame he has left.
Yesterday, Arenas posted a video on his Instagram account featuring some scantily clad women playing basketball. No big deal, right? Well, it happened to be accompanied by the following caption:
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…dont get me wrong,they have few #cutiepies but theres a whole alotta #beanpies running around hahahahahaha if #skylardiggins came out like this,I dont care if she missed every layup..imma buy season tickets and I dont even know where the fuck #tulsa is hahahaha #2016newwnbaoutfitPLS and 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 #donkeykong …smdh #thiswillbeawesome #soldouteverywhere
Obviously, people were mad about this because it’s one of the most sexist things ever posted on social media. After several media outlets called Arenas out for being a piece of shit, he decided to double down on his original comments.
First, he posted the following:
Ppl act like I said some shit thats just down right sexist and rude…..str8 men are attracted to women RIGHT? Men are 80 percent of sportviewers RIGHT? So lets name a few women sports,that still attract the men viewers…#Tennis,omg they were short skirts like female..#trackandfield,short tights and crop tops,so we can see abs “we get ass prints and stomachs,in that sport YAY”#volleyball,short tights and booties hanging out the back off their shorts “FUCK wheres my beer” #beachvollyball,fyckn swimsuits,jumping up and down WOW..#arenafootball theres nothing attractive about a women playing #FOOTBALL until they came out with the gear (no they didnt)“girls running each other over with 90 percent of their clothes removed..whos the mastermind behind this #sexist sport he or she needs a fucking statue..#UFC the manliest sport by far but they seem to attract men viewers by the million OMG it must be the tights and the crop tops and just maybeeeee a fighter gets hit so hard her sports bra falls off hahaha….ALL ABOVE SPORTS seems to understand the concept…..#Basketball has the lowest views by men BECUZ their mimicking MEN #Basketballchicks has some of the best bodies in women sports #Lesbians or #str8 we can give two shits about what they prefer in the bedroom becuz men prefer #assandtitties and last time I checked theres 20 total titties and 10 asses running around but for some odd reason were not getting it..what were getting is #tats #dreads #highsocks #baggyshorts #elbowpads..sounds like MEN attire to me..this sport will continue to be less viewed and under paid compared to other female sports #presidentLAURELRICHIE theres a reason 7 out of the top 10 highest paid women athletes come from tennis #Skirts and #ass…..if the #NBA got rid of the thug imagine for global viewing SHOULDNT you?? I dont care if u dont like the truth becuz MEN DON’T WANNA WATCH WOMEN ACT LIKE MEN..if they came out with an all #gay man sport..I bet they will wear less clothes then the #WNBA and thats a #FACT lol NOW GIVE US WHAT WE WANT and unveil them bodies…SEXINESS RUNS THIS WORLD…if ur selling sex,MEN are buying…ive never seen a man hooker trying to pick up women on the corner
And then after someone said he had referred to WNBA players as "ugly lesbians,” he posted this:
Hahahahaha I didnt say anything about them being #Lesbians lol..im a logical man…a female+ a female = 4 breast,2 vaginas,2 asses,meaning im on the hunt.. A female telling me shes a #lesbian is like a video chick saying she aint a groupie…I AINT really listening to shit she saying..all im trying to do is convince her and her partner that im a #lesbianstarterkit becuz we all know two females is better then 1 lmaoooooo but that ugly part YEAHHHH they got some #boogawolfs in that league lmaooo hahahaha #impetty #mrpetty
What the hell is a boogawolf?
In response to this, Mike Bass, who is a spokesperson for the NBA and WNBA, released the following statement:
“Gilbert Arenas’s comments are repugnant, utterly disrespectful and flat-out wrong. WNBA players are strong, talented and determined individuals who give it their all on the court and serve as inspiring role models to millions around the world. They should be celebrated for their accomplishments, not disparaged with ignorant insults.”
WNBA players did not remain silent either, taking to social media to fight back against Arenas’ remarks:

Sorry loves but we are at war trying to save our young girls from a lot of social media shaming & I am not here for it! Gotta run be great💋— Swin Cash (@SwinCash) December 16, 2015
It mostly just seems weird that a guy who finished his basketball career playing with the “Shanghai Sharks,” to pretend like he knows something about quality basketball.
