Three time NBA Allstar Gilbert Arenas tore Rev. Al Sharpton a new one in a lengthy Instagram caption.
Arenas, who is no stranger to controversy, blamed Sharpton for making the situation worse in Ferguson, Missouri. He goes on to call The good Reverend a “coon” and a “THOT“ which means “hoe” if your not up on the latest slang.
The caption has since been deleted but here’s a transcript.
“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”
“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 what u said at trayvons rally #enoughisenough ur right were tired of u PRETENDING”
Looks like poor Al is losing street cred by the day after being called out on his FBI snitchery on Tuesday.
UPDATE: Sharpton shoots back.
TMZ Caught up with Sharpton in NYC today where he fired back at Arenas.
“I’m not playing basketball, this is serious.”
He went on to criticize Arenas’s use of the racial slur “coon”.
“It tells you more about him than me and I don’t know who he is but I’m sure that one day he’ll learn that you shouldn’t talk about people like that.”
This from a man known for his anti-Semitic comments.
