Gilbert Arenas just found himself in more hot water.
The controversial athlete came under fire on Friday after making comments on Instagram about black women not being beautiful.
Unsurprisingly, other commenters went IN on the basketball player for being so disrespectful.
So, what did Gilbert write?? Ch-ch-check out snapshots (below):

Lupita Nyong’o is only beautiful with the lights off??
As you might have expected, his statements did NOT go over well in the comments section — or on Twitter — for that matter:
Gilbert Arenas is trending?
*hopes to see he’s back in the league*
I am guessing Gilbert Arenas forgot his mother…. dark skin black woman. What’s his twitter because he is a disgusting human being.

Sad part is Gilbert Arenas have two daughters who are dark skin not a good message to send out to the world as a father

Well, after getting dragged on social media, Gilbert sort-of apologized with a message on IG, sharing:
I never say sorry for the shit I say but it’s my fault I read this wrong and got into my feelings…I thought it was saying,if ur mixed ur not considered black and beautiful and my kids are mixed and dark skinned so I perceived it how I wanted to..I just got off the phone with the only women who tells me when my shit stinks,and I know it’s comes from the heart becuz she will defend me in front of everyone else and cuss me out when we’re alone @christyarenas she reread what it said (your African features are all the attractiveness u need) so I erased to kinda say sorry but not say sorry becuz u can’t truly blame me for reading it wrong (I went to public school) so I read it how I thought it was written….I fucked this up so I deserved the hatred that comes….I was trying to defend all shades of black but that’s what the post was also doing…I ended up pulling a COON moment…sorry all shades of black women no need to forgive me Im pretty sure I’ll say some fucked up shit probably in two weeks ├░┼╕╦£ΓÇô├░┼╕╦£ΓÇô (I know pussy prices about to double up on my ass from black women ├░┼╕╦£ΓÇÖ) and as for lupita she ain’t cute to me sorry…just like I’m not cute to 95% of u…A post shared by Gilbert Arenas (@no.chill.gil) on Apr 14, 2017 at 10:14am PDT
