Gilbert Arenas Just Called Rev. Al Sharpton A ‘Coon’ And Compared Him To A ‘Thot’

As a life-long Bullets/Wizards fan, Gilbert Arenas will always hold a special place in my heart. After watching Ledell Eackles, Pervis Ellison, and Harvey Grant impersonate the Washington Generals for years, only to have Bullets Hall of Famer slash worse GM ever trade a still in his prime Chris Webber for Mitch Richmond, Gilbert Arenas was the last bastion of hope until this past NBA season.

In addition to his on the court contributions, Gilbert Arenas was a pioneering social media presence before Joel Embiid picked up a basketball, and long before what is commonly referred to as “Black Twitter” galvanized into what it is today. Never known for being gun shy (badum-bum), the former baller took aim at activist and television personality Al Sharpton and his participation in the protests for recently murdered black men Eric Garner and Mike Brown.

In a lengthy Instagram caption that’s now been deleted, the former Wizard criticized the rioters and looters in St. Louis for destroying their own communities, and referred to the famously coiffed-preacher as a “coon,” described his behavior as “#THOT” like, and cited the Trayvon Martin and Jena 6 verdicts as examples of the activist making similar situations worse.

“FAMILiES of the victims pleaseeeeee stop asking #alsharpton to speak or ur behalf,you have a better chance having #caesar the monkey from #planetoftheapes to get justice for you..the stats also show AL coon sharpton has not helped one situation he has protested at,he actually made it worst and because of him the jury goes the other way..(think about it) Jena six,trayvon and the list goes back way back..#AL ur like a #THOT in the club,lookn for attention”

We should note that the pair do have some history, as in 2010 Sharpton spoke out harshly against Arenas during his guns in the locker room flap, and called for then Commissioner Stern to issue a severe punishment. Gilbert’s words may reflect his true feelings, but the harshness of his statement may be attributed to some still lingering personal issues with the good reverend. We’ve included the entire rant below, and while Gil hasn’t been on an NBA court in a while, it seems he still has the ability to break an opponent down when he’s in the mood.

See Arenas’ full comments below:

“I would like to start off by saying too the family of the victim GOD BLESS#RIPmichealbrown you will be missed: too EVERY African American out there..how dumb are we really???every time we hear some bad news, the first thing we do is #RIOT #ROB #STEAL #BURN sh-t in our OWN neighborhoods..this racism fight has never been #blackvswhite, it’s ALWAYS been #blackvsblack from what the stats.. About 10 riots from the black community over the years and the only thing damaged ,was the BLACK COMMUNITY by The BLACK COMMUNITY..only reason they issue riot police isssss just in case you actually got smart enough to walk 6 blocks ,YALL ain’t f-cking up white rich sh-t smdh”
