Gilbert Arenas makes misogynistic comments about WNBA players

Wizards Preview  Basketball

Former NBA player Gilbert Arenas took to social media and posted some disparaging comments about the WNBA, specifically concerning what he perceives as the lack of attractive women playing the pro game.

The accompanying video in Arenas’ Instagram post features risqué images of scantily clad women playing basketball, so here’s his misogynistic message only.

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 #skylardigginscame out like this,I dont care if she missed every layup..imma buy season tickets and I dont even know where the f*** #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

While there will be several troglodytic Internet denizens who will shamefully agree with Arenas’ sentiments in the comments section of his troubling Instagram post, his thoughts obviously — or at least hopefully — do not represent the sentiments of the general public. But that doesn’t make Arenas’ post any less despicable or reprehensible.
