Australian humor from the Herald Sun causing quite a stir in some circles. A cartoon depicting Serena Williams' tantrum at the U.S. Open.

Yes "Roger" I saw that in my Australian ABC (Australian) News feed.
Despite the cartoonist and "some" sections of the community appearing to see it as funny i get the impression that the vast majority including myself "don't". Despite what she did or did not do this depiction of an utter champion is wrong.

You will notice i didn't give it a thumbs up which could give the wrong impression...

When it comes to International issues on this forum i tread lightly and with respect..

Well, that may be so if it is a female who wants to be treated like a male.  But if it's a real male, like John McEnroe, then he gets depicted the same and we all have a laugh.

Sorry Cookie I have to disagree but of course if you got the ABC version of opinion (Australians Broadcasting Communism) then there were those there who say it was racist etc, but whats new from that mob? 

It was a CARTOON FFS!   A cartoon that depicted a despicable piece of bad sportsmanship and because the woman is BLACK are they supposed to whiten her up or what! All those critics of the 'dummy spit' cartoonist yet not one comment about a world champions disgusting behaviour or the fact that the moment for the other player (the winner) was demeaned by this selfish bitch! If it was a whit male there would be no critics 

Good, the Herald Sun stuck it up the critics the next day by plastering the cartoon over their front page. 

Bad behaviour should be open to ridicule or is that only applicable to male white?

And where were the critics when our sweet mild mannered Ozzie player Nick Kyrgios was depicted as a dickhead, just because he is!

 

BTW Utter champions don't act like spoilt brats... Look at Roger Federrer for example!

Pete, yes sometimes one's literally expertise (mine) comes across faulty.

Very true the other competitor lost all the accolades she should have been given.

Regardless of the race issue i really viewed that cartoon depiction so "visually" distasteful and maybe (the cartoon) could have better portrayed better but with the same intent.

Anyway i don't even watch the tennis unless there's nothing else on and its raining so I'm in no position to really comment on Kerios. I only commented on Rogers post as it fell into Aussie humour.. But rereading your reply many times i do see where you coming from.

Aussie goes out with a new girlfriend.

Takes her to the zoo. Had a wonderful day. Just leaving they walk passed the Monkeys. One male monkey was fixing this female right up.
The lad thinks this is my opportunity..

He says to Girlfriend "I wish I was doing that"

The girlfriend replied, Why don't you ask the monkey she might oblige...
