Re: Articles and Interviews

I dont think Roddick, Nole or Caroline will do this again. They werent doing it to offend anyone, just entertain some tennis fans.
Yeah, Caroline has more important things to focus on, and this stuff comes with fame. Lots of nonsense swirling around as people use your name to make some point that doesnt involve you

Re: Articles and Interviews

You can get a rough idea of how much nonsense this story is if even most people in GM act like the voice of reason here.

You also get a rough idea of how influential the media is. The match was played on Friday but nobody cared about the Serena imitation until half a week later when they were told that they should take offense.

Re: Articles and Interviews

Roddick was doing it for years. Caroline watched, saw the crowd enjoyed it. No one was calling it racist when Roddick did it.
This is a nonsense topic.
Its not Caroline's imitation. Its been around for years and no one ever criticized it and fans enjoyed it.

Re: Articles and Interviews

Even she has done it several times, this whole thing is so dated but "journalists" that don't follow tennis have no way of knowing.

Re: Articles and Interviews

So many online papers picked this up, with no one doing any research.
Its not Caroline's imitation. Its been around a long time, like pretending to serve lefty, then screaming "That ball was on the line! You cannot be serious!
Caroline didnt invent that imitation either.

This coverage is so poor and offbase, I wonder how many real news stories are totally mangled by incompetence & no one doing any research

Re: Articles and Interviews

Even though I do find that joke quite awkward, IMO media are just trying to bash her for no reason. Serena herself never made fuss about it so if she doesn't why should they? Click-grabbing topic, that's the only reason,I'm afraid.

Re: Articles and Interviews

Caroline did nothing wrong. Any person in her position or Rory or Tiger Woods needs some security anyway. They make so much money.

Caroline is an international brand. So is Rory.
They have management teams that will figure out how to handle this phony BS. Its just using her name and Serena's name to get some online clicks, as marineblue said.
She did nothing wrong and this same imitation has been done many times before, so this will blow out in a few weeks.

Re: Articles and Interviews

I was stunned when I checked my Youtube account this morning to find out that the story even made it onto The Young Turks!



They instantly shoot it down of course, Cenk even uses the same blackface argument I used in GM But Jayar is a bit hesitant to give her a pardon..these guys are very level headed so I guess this really is offensive to some black people.

The only positive I see here is that it will mean she will probably never do this bit again. It has never been funny really, if she wants to mimic other players she should stick to mimicking their mannerisms (like Djokovic does with his Sharapova bit...that is funny and clever!), the whole thing was rather childish and a bit cringeworthy to begin with.

This is unfortunately rather mild abuse - for today's standards. If you ever see articles about the abuse going on in between and from 'boy bands' and their followers, you'd be truly shocked. Death threats are as common as dirt.

It would be a nice gesture if Serena spoke up for Caroline at this point. I don't expect it, I won't hold it against her if she doesn't, but she's the only one who can put an end to this.

Serena & Roddick should both take some ownage in this.
This is a phony 'controversy'. Its not new, its not Caroline's creation. Its total nonsense, meant to get attention by media people who dont bother doing any research into this story.

Re: Articles and Interviews

I didn't find any offense to it at all (as a Serena fan). So crazy to see how overblown the story has become.

Re: Articles and Interviews

I don't recall a big controvery the last time Caro impersonated Serena or when Roddick and Dkjokovic impersonated Serena.

Oddly this didn't become a story until several days after the match.

There was even a story about it this morning on the Today show. At least they mentioned it wasn't the 1st time she'd impersonated Serena and that Roddick and Djokovic have also impersonated Serena.

For the future I think Caro should drop her impersonations of Serena or other players for that matter as it'll probably attract more unwanted negative attention.

Captain Matthew Gideon: I may have an idea.
Dureena Nafeel: I don't think you've recovered from your last good idea.
Captain Matthew Gideon: That would explain it.
