Cartoonist vilified for Serena tantrum cartoon

Artist Blasted for Racist Depiction of Serena Williams at U.S. Open

Photo/Julio CortezChair umpire Carlos Ramos is led off court after the US Open final, which Serena Williams lost.

Ramos called three rules violations against Williams during the event.

Strycova added that she has been penalised previously in her career and Williams' punishment had nothing to do with her being a woman.

'Personally, I am with you there.

Ramos was unperturbed, and Williams' rage continued: she was soon given a point penalty for smashing and making bits of her racket.

"I didn't know Ramos was sitting in the chair". "She was insisting that she doesn't cheat - completely believable, but besides the point - while he was making a call over which he, at that point, had little discretion". That proved costly: Williams "dropped the second set - and the match - shortly thereafter". The violations also include fines totaling $17,000. She became the first ever Japanese player to ever win the Grand Slam final. She was disqualified from a semifinal match at the 2009 US Open for threatening a lineswoman.

"We should not let her record, as glowing as it is, overshadow the fact that on this day, in this match Williams was wrong", Ings wrote in The Sydney Morning Herald. She added, "He's never taken a game from a man because they said 'thief.' For me it blows my mind".

While the newspaper and Knight, in his comments in the paper, stood by the cartoon, it appeared the social media outrage was too much.

An Australian cartoonist faced withering criticism on Tuesday for portraying tennis superstar Serena Williams using - what Harry Potter author JK Rowling described as - "racist and sexist tropes".

Critics said the cartoon used racist and sexist stereotypes.

"I'm just focusing on this tie and working again".

"I feel like maybe they won't be around for much longer so having the chance to see them live and being born in the same time zone as them is really great".

He questioned the imposition by social media critics of no-go areas in cartooning and other critical media. "I have since texted her coach to make sure she understands that she is celebrated and how proud I am of her".

"I drew her as an African-American woman, she's powerfully built, she wears these outrageous costumes when she plays tennis - she's interesting to draw".

The cartoonist suspended his own Twitter account early this week due to abuse and threats toward him and his family as a result of the cartoon.
