Alexis Ohanian has finally broken his family’s silence on the controversial Serena Williams cartoon drawn by Herald Sun cartoonist Mark Knight, depicting her meltdown at the US Open.
The Reddit founder, who married Williams last year, described the cartoon, drawn by the Herald Sun’s Mark Knight, as “blatantly racist and misogynistic”.
The tennis legend was depicted as a baby, angrily jumping on her smashed racket with a pacifier nearby in the cartoon.
In the background, her opponent Naomi Osaka is depicted as white with straight, blonde hair facing towards umpire Carlos Ramos who pleads: “Can you just let her win?”
I am truly perplexed to learn this editor of the Australian newspaper behind the blatantly racist & misogynistic cartoon of my wife is a “Male Champion of Change” Is this supposed to be satire, too?
