Between battling the mother of his children and just being an all-around asshole on social media, Gilbert Arenas is the definitive example of a self-hating Negro who shouldn’t be raising little black girls.

It seems as if Arenas has an issue with Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o. She posted a photo of herself vacationing in Mexico with her beautiful skin just glistening in the sun, but of course, Arenas had something negative to say about her.


Earlier this year, Arenas took his first shot at Nyong’o over her skin tone, saying that no one wants a woman that dark.


“Not to be funny, but can you name a beautiful black woman on the outside … not brown skinned … but Tyrese black. …When you have African features black then u have number#1 lupita n’yongo and she’s cute when the lights are off. Second you have (Ajuma Naseyana ) Sorry but ewwwww… so the black beautiful women you boost up is technically light skinned or brown skinned,” Arenas wrote on Instagram.

After being dragged on social media and having people point out that his own daughters are dark-skinned, Arenas did post an “apology”:

Bye, Kinja! It's been fun (occasionally).
