Gilbert Arenas Apologizes To Lupita Nyong’o For Colorist Comments About Her Magnificence
In 2017, the competitor asserted that not very many darker looking ladies are excellent and explicitly tended to Nyong’o, calling attention to that she was not ‘charming.’
Time and again, Gilbert Arenas has stood out as truly newsworthy for offering disdainful comments about on-screen character Lupita Nyong’o’s appearance.
In any case, this week, the NBA player stunned fans when he apparently perceived the mistake of his ways and gave a statement of regret to the Oscar-winning entertainer for his comments which many feels were saturated with colorism.
“We can’t meet up as a race until the blockheads of the race right their wrongs,” he composed Tuesday in a startling Instagram story. “My name is Gilbert and I was an imbecile for assaulting one of our sovereigns for reasons unknown. @Lupita Nyong’o, I am genuinely upset about my coon conduct. #blacklivesmatterdeadandalive #blackexcellence.”

In 2017, the competitor has ended up enduring an onslaught for his remarks about darker looking ladies on Instagram in which he asserted that not very many darker looking ladies are excellent. He explicitly tended to Nyong’o, calling attention to that she was not “adorable.”
Because of an Instagram post from ProBlkThought that read, “Dear Black Girl: You don’t need to be blended to be wonderful,” Arenas went on a tirade composing,
“How dark would we say we are talking??? Not to be clever would u be able to name a delightful dark ladies outwardly … not earthy colored skin … like Tyrese dark … top 50 most lovely ladies off [sic] unequaled … the darkest ladies they have is (Keshia Knight Pulliam is otherwise known as Rudy) (prattle)) association) (taral hicks) (Serena Williams),” he composed at that point.
