Serena’s Smackdown


Ain’t nothing better than witnessing a public smack down.

This picture was better than when Barack Obama delivered his first State of the Union address in front of a Republican-controlled Congress  – and delivered the line, “I have no more campaigns to run”.

It’s better than a WWF smackdown.

After winning Wimbledon, trolls insulted Serena’s body and questioned her femininity with posts such as the following:

Serena the gorilla won again pfff, grunts like one, looks like, is one.

Can’t fucking stand Serena Williams’ attitude. I hope she loses. Her and her ego.

Ironic then that main reason for her success is that she is built like a man

They were so cruel that others, such as J.K. Rowling came to Serena’s defense:

She is built like a man”. Yeah, my husband looks just like this in a dress. You’re an idiot.


Serena remained silent.  And then the New York Magazine came out and the picture spoke a thousand words–a few of them were, “How ya like me now, bee-yotches?!”
