Gilbert Arenas has always been known for his outspoken nature, regardless of the contentious nature of his views. His latest remarks about the LGBTQ community are another testament to his unfiltered commentary.
The former three-time NBA All-Star has voiced his belief that the LGBTQ community currently stands as the "most unfairly treated group on the planet."
During an interview with Vlad TV, Arenas discussed what he refers to as the LGBTQ "playbook." He suggested that those who identify as heterosexual, or those who are simply unaware of this playbook, are persistently subject to scrutiny and at times, potentially cancellation.
“They have a playbook that only they are playing by, that they can only see, no one else gets to see this playbook, but we’re being judged by everything that’s in this playbook, but we don’t know it.”
“So, it’s like, there is no open dialogue about what is appropriate and what’s not. We only find out after we f-ck up and that’s unfair. That’s f-cking unfair you can’t do that. Just words, phrases like he, she, it, they. We don’t f—— know. How do we know? You’re making it up as you go,” Arenas continued.
“It’s unfair that you can cancel somebody on a playbook that only you have.”
Gilbert Arenas' remarks are likely to stir up emotions, particularly within the community he's discussing. However, this type of controversy is not unusual for the 41-year-old.
It's undeniable that the lexicon within the LGBTQ community evolves continuously, a circumstance that could be quite challenging for anyone striving to stay informed and updated.
