Former NBA player Gilbert Arenas shared some not-so-nice opinions about dark-skinned women on Instagram. Arenas, who infamously sued his ex Basketball Wives star girlfriend Laura Govan for defamation, doesn’t seem to think too highly of dark-skinned women.
On the Instagram post, Arenas had this to say:

After catching flack for his comments, Arenas posted an apology and said his sister set him straight:
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 😖😖 (I know pussy prices about to double up on my ass from black women 😒)
