On Tuesday (Jun.16), Arenas hit Instagram and posted an apology for what he described as “coon behavior” and his colorist attacks on US actress Lupita Nyong’ o. Over a picture of Nyong’o he shared in his Instagram Stories, the 38-year-old former professional baller said:
“We can’t come together as a race until the idiots of the race right their wrongs.
When u say African features black then u have (#1 lupita nyong’ o), and she’s cute when the lights are off second is (Ajuma nasenyana) sorry but ewww so the black beautiful women u try to boost up is technically light skinned or brown skinned.”
Arenas followed those head ass comments with more foolishness when he responded to a user calling him out under a photo of Nyong’ o shared on Instagram.
chill.gil hey looks it’s the black girl you said that looks better in the dar[k],”
Arenas responded, “@wg_bombshell_ everybody saying her(skin) looks beautiful how about her face tho??
