Our friend Gilbert recently went through some tough times with his baby mama. And it's tough to be back out on the market again, in Orlando's minefield of a singles scene. We're sympathetic. But it sounds like the NBA might not be.
Outspoken Orlando Magic star Gilbert Arenas could be in line to pay another high price Friday for unguarded Twitter comments after he ridiculed his blind date with a series of derogatory tweets from their restaurant dinner table.
A day after confirming he was fined by the NBA for inappropriate comments made on Twitter, Arenas showed little restraint in making his private meal public Thursday night, even posting a photo of his date's shirt after criticizing her fashion sense.
"Got hooked up on a blind date..and I guess she was blind when she picked out this outfit ..OMG I thought she was the queen of ZAMUNDA," he tweeted.
Arenas then went further, posting, "I thought she had a bunch of stretch marks but it was just her shirt..lookn like SIMBA," before covertly capturing an image of her striped top on his cell phone camera.
"Look at this hot mess...she all most caught me takin the pic," he tweeted as he uploaded the image.
Arenas failed to slow up his caustic comments, telling his almost 30,000 followers, "this dragon can eat," before describing her as "lookin like a thunder cat."
Oh, ya burnt, girl. Then again, Gilbert tweeted the next morning, "She did text my friend and say she's sorry and when she read it I was kinda funny..so ladies.don't worry ill leave my phone hm on our date." Yes, ladies, don't worry. If you're already on a date with Gilbert Arenas, surely there's something that got you there, something worthier of your worry.
