Gilbert Arenas Doubles Down On Sexist Rant: ‘I Was Trying To Help’ WNBA

Gilbert Arenas apparently is enjoying his latest 15 minutes in the spotlight.

The former NBA point guard posted a horribly sexist rant on Instagram on Wednesday, calling for the WNBA to make its athletes play in revealing uniforms to boost male viewership. Arenas insulted the players by saying he didn’t care if they were good athletes as long as they’re “cutie pies” and added another post that also insulted gay men saying, “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.”

And as if that wasn’t bad enough, Arenas posted again Wednesday night to make sure people knew he really, really is sexist. He even took a dig at ESPN’s Jackie MacMullan, one of the most well-respected active NBA columnists.

To all the ppl mad about my POSTS #jackieM #aroundthehorn and bunch of high self esteem ugly chicks #(expletive) YOU hahahahahaha I was trying to help ya sport But I guess yall are doing fine with #orangeisthenewblackbasketballedition #peoplehatethetruth what makes me laugh is if you ask men,name a few women basketball players.. we only know the cute ones lol #mayamoore #skylarD #leilani #candiceparker #penny #suebird #lisaleslie #swincash #dianataurasi #mariastepanova #brittneyjackson and #hoopz from #flavaoflove hahahahahaha

Arenas also called out TMZ for saying he called WNBA players “ugly lesbians,” clarifying he just called them ugly. Unsurprisingly, that post also was pretty offensive toward lesbians, too.

The WNBA and NBA already released a statement Wednesday denouncing Arenas’ original comments. Many WNBA players, including league MVP Elena Delle Donne, have spoken out against Arenas, too.
