People had some things to say that alternated between complimentary and kinda funny as fuknowtherest when I posted images of Serena Williams in a bikini
earlier this week. Now the tennis player is showing up to posh fashion shows like this one for Burberry. Not only that, she's speaking out against the Rolling Stone article which referred to the victim of the Steubenville rape after the magazine quoted Williams as saying, "she shouldn't have put herself in that position."
Her response while questioned at the Burberry event was, "I am currently reaching out to the girl's family to let her know that I am deeply sorry for what was written in the Rolling Stone article. What was written — what I supposedly said — is insensitive and hurtful, and I by no means would say or insinuate that she was at all to blame."
And while I by no means think that the young men involved should have committed the crime or the later website crimes and agree that they deserve some kind of punishment, I can understand Serena's original comment - if that's truly what she said. I hope it is. Her power to help influence positive behavior among young women shouldn't have other people forcing her hand to apologize. The magazine taking it out of context to make her look bad is the worse thing.
