The WNBA did not pull its punches in addressing Gilbert Arenas’ comments about the league, calling the former NBA guard’s words “repugnant, utterly disrespectful and flat-out wrong.”

On Tuesday, Arenas posted to Instagram a video of women in their underwear playing basketball (truly no reason to link or embed it here) with the following caption:

NOW this is what america was hoping for when they announced the #WNBA back in 1996… not a bunch of chicks running around looking like,cast members from #orangeisthenewblack…dont get me wrong,they have few #cutiepies but theres a whole alotta #beanpies running around hahahahahaha if #skylardiggins came out like this,I dont care if she missed every layup..imma buy season tickets and I dont even know where the fuck #tulsa is hahahaha #2016newwnbaoutfitPLS and if u think this is sexist,9 times out of 10 u the ugly one and we didnt pay to come see u play anyway #donkeykong…smdh #thiswillbeawesome#soldouteverywhere

In addition to the WNBA’s harshly worded statement condemning Arenas, numerous individual players tweeted their disapproval, including stars like the New York Liberty’s Swin Cash and the Chicago Sky’s Elena Della Donne. Players criticized Arenas’ comments and also poked fun at his lack of an NBA job.
