Gilbert Arenas posts more offensive comments on social media
Over the past several months, former NBA player Gilbert Arenas has managed to remain in the public eye by posting offensive, sometimes reprehensible comments and observations on social media. It’s been a few weeks since he’s posted something outlandish, so it’s no surprise he has resurfaced again, this time making crude comments while discussing his plan to lock-down a front row seat to see Kobe Bryant play in his last home game at Staples Center before he retires.
His rant begins innocently enough while detailing a scheme he’s hatching to sign a 10-day contract with the Los Angeles Lakers. It goes downhill quickly from there, as Arenas then suggests that he doesn’t want a seat on the Lakers bench next to Nick Young and Roy Hibbert. Why? Because Arenas reprehensibly suggests they have Down syndrome.
Arenas’ entire Instagram screed, slightly edited for “clarity” (as if that’s going to happen) and explicit content, but horrendous spelling errors, terrible punctuation and ridiculous hashtags, etc. have been preserved (via Black Sports Online):

So, um, yeah. Whatever that all means.
Gilbert Arenas: Still keeping it classy. Then again, when one’s social media track record involves making shamefully misogynistic comments about WNBA players and making light of the Flint water crisis by disparaging the city’s female residents … well, what else can be expected?
A Profile in Douchebaggery, indeed.
