Of Course Gilbert Arenas Has A Garbage, Sexist Take On The WNBA

He made absolutely disgusting comments.

We already knew Gilbert Arenas, the former NBA player who once brought guns into the Washington Wizards locker room, has awful judgment. But the 33-year-old demonstrated it once again in an Instagram post on Wednesday, which featured some clear-cut sexist opinions. 

In the NSFW Instagram video, two women play basketball in thongs. Arenas captioned his post, "NOW this is what america was hoping for when they announced the #WNBA back in 1996." We don't think we have to explain what is so offensive about this. 

Arenas also said WNBA players look like cast members from the Netflix show "Orange Is the New Black" and called them #beanpies, along with a whole lot of other disgustingly, degrading things.

He then decided to post another one of his sexist hot takes just a few hours later.

Ppl act like I said some shit thats just down right sexist and rude.....str8 men are attracted to women RIGHT? Men are 80 percent of sportviewers RIGHT? So lets name a few women sports,that still attract the men viewers...#Tennis,omg they were short skirts like female..#trackandfield,short tights and crop tops,so we can see abs "we get ass prints and stomachs,in that sport YAY"#volleyball,short tights and booties hanging out the back off their shorts "FUCK wheres my beer" #beachvollyball,fyckn swimsuits,jumping up and down WOW..#arenafootball theres nothing attractive about a women playing #FOOTBALL until they came out with the gear (no they didnt)"girls running each other over with 90 percent of their clothes removed..whos the mastermind behind this #sexist sport he or she needs a fucking statue..#UFC the manliest sport by far but they seem to attract men viewers by the million OMG it must be the tights and the crop tops and just maybeeeee a fighter gets hit so hard her sports bra falls off hahaha....ALL ABOVE SPORTS seems to understand the concept.....#Basketball has the lowest views by men BECUZ their mimicking MEN #Basketballchicks has some of the best bodies in women sports #Lesbians or #str8 we can give two shits about what they prefer in the bedroom becuz men prefer #assandtitties and last time I checked theres 20 total titties and 10 asses running around but for some odd reason were not getting it..what were getting is #tats #dreads #highsocks #baggyshorts #elbowpads..sounds like MEN attire to me..this sport will continue to be less viewed and under paid compared to other female sports #presidentLAURELRICHIE theres a reason 7 out of the top 10 highest paid women athletes come from tennis #Skirts and #ass.....if the #NBA got rid of the thug imagine for global viewing SHOULDNT you??

When a person has 10+ hashtags in any post, they're either trying too hard or they're saying something incredibly stupid. For Arenas, it looks to be a combination of the two.

So going forward, how about we just not pay attention to anything he has to say? Oh, and go support women's sports, too. 

Update, 5:38 p.m.: League spokesman Mike Bass responded to Arenas' comments Wednesday on behalf of the WNBA and NBA:

"Gilbert Arenas's comments are 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 post was previously updated to include the second Arenas Instagram post.
