Gilbert Arenas Disses Lupita Nyong'o For Having Dark Skin

Yes, again.

Gilbert Arenas is back at it again with the nonsense.

Earlier this year, the former NBA baller went on an Instagram rant about dark-skinned black women, singling out Oscar-winning actress/actual goddess Lupita Nyong'o and claiming that she's only cute "when the lights are off."

Attempts to educate Arenas about colorism and internalized racism in the comments section clearly fell on death ears (eyes?), because Arenas doubled down on his bullsh*t on IG this week.

After @BallerAlert posted a gorgeous photo of Lupita vacationing in Mexico and slaying in a white bikini, one commenter summoned Arenas, tagging him and writing, "Hey [look] it's the black girl you said that looks better in the [dark]."

"Everybody saying her (skin) looks beautiful," Arenas wrote, inserting the "OK" emoji before adding, "How about her face tho??"

Arenas then threw in a few crying laughing emojis and the words "lights off."

Lupita doesn't seem to be losing any sleep over haters online, though; she's currently promoting the highly-anticipated Black Panther film and surprised fans by going undercover at San Diego Comic Con last weekend.

Gilbert Arenas and his anti-black foolishness is enough to make anyone need to cleanse their palate, so I'd suggest checking out Lupita's SDCC video — and her beyond cute pink Power Ranger look — below.

Did you see me at Comic Con?! #SDCC2017
