Gilbert Arenas shows his sexism in WNBA diatribe
Gilbert Arenas – who eagerly accepted Donald Sterling’s apology – is showing his own sexism.
The former Wizards/Warriors/Magic/Grizzlies guard posted a video to Instagram showing two women playing basketball in their underwear with the caption:
The WNBA didn’t hold back in their response:
“Gilbert Arenas’s comments 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.”
This is gross and sexist, and Arenas probably knows it. If he doesn’t, he needs to grow up. He’s 33 years old. It’s long past time he realize how awful these comments are.
Arenas is just trolling for attention, just as he did with Sterling and when he said – in 2015 – LeBron James isn’t a No. 1 option. Blame me for indulging him.
As we get further from Arenas’ career ending, he’ll fade from whatever dimming spotlight still shines on him. Backward comments like this ensure it.
