Social Justice Warrior Quickly Deletes Serena Williams Tweet After It Backfires Massively

Social Justice Warrior Quickly Deletes Serena Williams Tweet After It Backfires Massively

Oh no.

Kelly has had an absolute nightmare here.

And she's copping some stick online for it too.

A Florida woman (who we're going to to assume is named Kelly judging by her Twitter handle) is being slammed by her fellow social media users for wrongly accusing a journalist of sexism.

Following Serena Williams' incredible comeback win over Tsvetana Pironkova in the US Open quarterfinals, Portuguese tennis reporter Jose Morgado took to Twitter to share a standard results update.

He tweeted: "Serena Williams plays two great sets, comes back from a set and break down to beat Tsvetana Pironkova 4-6, 6-3, 6-2 and reach a 14th #USOpen semi-final. 39th Grand Slam semi-final as well. What a run Tsveti had... Williams vs Azarenka or Mertens tomorrow."

It seemed like a fairly innocuous tweet at the time, right?

Well, clearly not in the eyes of some.

It didn't take long for one user to jump down Morgado's throat and accuse him of sexism towards the 23-time Grand Slam winner.

"Kinda sexist with saying she had a break down," Kelly replied.

"Do you talk about men athletes in this manner?"

Serena Williams Says She Has Been ‘Underpaid And Undervalued’ For Her Entire Career

published at4 months ago

One can only assume that Kelly had mistaken the tennis terminology of being a 'break down' for some sort of mental or emotional break down.

Either way, Kelly was immediately met with a barrage of criticism from fans who were quick to point out her blunder.

And, unsurprisingly, Kelly deleted her response - just as quickly as she'd initially tweeted it in the first place.

As for Morgado, he saw the funny side of things.

"I receive a lot of replies, but this one was the best of the day (so far)," he tweeted.

"She came back from a SET and a BREAK (of serve) down. It would be sexist if men didn't come back from set & break disadvantages day in, day out."

A social media shocker... of the highest order.
