AVA DUVERNAY, ELLEN DEGENERES & MORE STAND UP FOR SERENA WILLIAMS AMIDST U.S. OPEN DRAMA
Monday, Sep 10, 2018

U.S. Open umpire Carlos Ramos may not be a fan of Serena Williams, but there are plenty others who have her back!

The 23-time Grand Slam winner gave the umpire a “polite read” during Saturday’s U.S. Open match against Naomi Osaka. After she was penalized for receiving “coaching,” Serena called the umpire a “liar” and “thief”—racking up $17,000 in fines. In a post-game interview, Williams called out the misogyny and double standards in sports.

“He’s never took a game from a man ’cause he said ‘thief’. For me it blows my mind. But I’m going to continue to fight for women and to fight for us.” She added, “I just feel like the fact that I have to go through this is an example for the next person that has emotion and wants to express themselves as a woman. And they’re going to be allowed to do that. Maybe it didn’t work out for me, but it’s going to work out for the next person.”
Many celebrities such as Ciara, Lala Anthony, Ellen DeGeneres, Reese Witherspoon Ava Duvernay and Dish Nation host, Da Brat, thanked Serena for standing up for women’s rights.
