Default Serena Williams' Meltdown

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qvy0d_65aKU&t=2s

I appreciate and respect greatness. The pinnacle of the sport is where Serena will always be.

That being said, wtf was up with her acting like a shit and blaming sexism for her penalties? Maybe the ref could have warned her better but she just couldn't let it go. After appearing all strong black woman and shit, complete with finger pointing and screeching, she begins crying during the final games of the U.S. Open Championship.

She is being celebrated in the media and esp amongst Black Twitter because she made a stand or some shit. This is commendable? Losing composure and then breaking down. If that's how a strong female icon behaves, well, it's not a good look.

She started wearing a tutu to take shots at the circuit for banning her black cat suit (which was bullshit), and proceeds to act like the most entitled athlete in the whole sport, Lebron-esque.

Once again, all the propped up strong women in sports continue to prove that women are just wired to be more emotional and prone to breakdowns. I feel like Serena knew she didn't have it that day and proceeded to somewhat manufacture the drama to try and crusade some bullshit.

Did y'all see this match?

Facts are this...

The Line Judge called a coaching warning when she looked at her coach in the crowd and he made some kind of hand gesture.

She got upset and smashed her tennis raq on the ground resulting in a penalty.

She argued with the Line Judge stating she would rather lose than to cheat to win. Demanded an apology. Then eventually called him a thief which caused a match point.

She got upset over that hinting at sexism. Saying men on the court say much worse than that and nothing is done do them.

After the match her coach said that he ADMITTED to coaching Serena.

So her tirade was totally unwarranted.

The Line Judge from certain tennis followers posts is more strict about that stuff compared to others that don't have the guts to call it against big stars like that. All he did was his judge and he got crucified for it because all those other judges don't.

You have to pay the consequences of your actions, even if you think they are right. All of this would've never happened if she didn't over-react and smash it on the ground. If she kept it in, let her play speak for her, then after the match bring up the coaching warning that would've been more beneficial to her and the Osaka who she stole the moment away from.

This entire incident shows how stupid our society is getting. Not about Serena's embarrassing behavior, but all the morons (most that never watched a full tennis match) and places CNN coming to defend her. It's also comical that she hints at sexism and racism about this.

Yes, the umpire is clearly racist and sexist for helping out the 20 year old EN/Japanese black woman instead. This is embarrassing on every level. Also parts of the Tennis Federation should be ashamed for not immediately coming to the umpire's defense.

Also, I'd like to give a very special shout out to all the twats that booed a 20 year old kid for absolutely nothing. F#ck you.

I seen the artist of that cartoon is under fire as a racist.



They said because he drew her lips too big.







This is getting out of control.

She's just a very emotional and highly excitable person.

It's not about women, men do it too. Haven't we seen some boxers attacking the referee? Or biting ears?

It's pathetically hilarious how all the liberal leftist programs like cnn and espn are supporting her abhorrent behavior. She got her ass whooped and took what should have been a great moment from Osaka away, but she's a black mother, so let's all support her low class hoodrat behavior.

"don't worry, we'll get through this"

aka

'the fans are here for me, not you"


Made her look the ugliest IMO when she was telling the crowd during the award ceremony

Talk about making it all about yourself and twisting the knife

She doesn't resent this at all`

Made Kanye blush, even Screamin A went in on her today

Bingo.


I think you have to be an idiot to think that there isn't a favorable bias towards African-Americans displayed by the media. Whether it's for Sports or for regular every day issues. The media perpetuates this idea that Blacks need to be coddled, or protected from criticism. That if you criticize a Black person, that you must obviously only be doing so because you're a bigot. That your criticism is not genuine, but nefarious in nature.

Insanity.
