Gilbert Arenas has shown his entire behind. The former NBA player commented on a photo of Oscar award winner Lupita Nyong’o vacationing on the beach and his remarks were less than complimentary.

“Everybody saying her (skin) looks beautiful. how about her face tho?? Lights off,” he wrote.

The 35-year-old’s disgusting comments continued.

We don’t know what Arenas has against Nyong’o, but this isn’t the first time he’s made comments about her or those with her complexion. In a social media rant earlier this year, he celebrated women of mixed race (his prerogative) on a meme that read, “Dear Black girl…you don’t have to be mixed to be beautiful.” But it was this comment that ruffled more than a few feathers.

“How black are we talking?? Not to be funny can you name a beautiful black women on the outside…”

Yes, Gilbert, we absolutely can.
