The young midfielder - as famous for his 'DENCH' brand as his footballing ability - caused a mini Twitter eruption last night with an unfortunate series of tweets.
The Tweets seemed to imply that the Ghanaian felt he would have more first-team opportunities were he white and English.
With Arteta suspended and Flamini injured it would appear there could be space in the side for Frimpong who was named as a first-team substitute in Arsenal's first few games of the season.
When a fan asked the 21-year-old why he wasn't in the squad, the Telegraph says Frimpong replied "LOL I wanna laugh".
He tweeted soon after "Sometimes I wish I was white and English #realtalk", causing many to believe he was suggesting that chances at Arsenal are favourable for white, Englishmen.
Soon after realising the comment had caused a stir, the midfielder removed the tweet and quickly claimed "Not every tweet is football related".
Realising the next day's headlines, Frimpong went further to quash any suggestion that the tweet was in relation to Arsene Wenger's selection policy.
"Look what ever you read tomorrow has majorly been twisted. Is a joke what people will do to start controversy goodnight people" he tweeted.
Wenger himself explained his decision to leave out the young holding-midfielder, saying on Arsenal.com that he is "still short of competition."
This isn't the first time that Frimpong has made the news for something other than his football skills.
The Ghana international is infamous for his Twitter comments, even creating an image of an alternative FIFA 14 case, featuring former team-mates Samir Nasri and Alex Song, in which he titled the cover the 'bench edition'.
His feud with Nasri started when the Frenchman left Arsenal, and Frimpong even uploaded a video of his Range Rover which included a projection of an image of him throttling Nasri - beaming out from the door and onto the ground.
