Serena Williams’ Husband Alexis Ohanian Claps Back at Troll
At this age and the weight she is now, she does not move as easily as she did 15 years ago,” Tiriac said. “Serena was a sensational player. If she had a little decency, she would retire! From all points of view.”
The protective husband took to Twitter to respond, “Safe to say no one gives a damn what Ion Țiriac thinks.”
“2021 and no holding back when a racist/sexist clown with a platform comes for my family,” he later tweeted.
We think the fabulous Serena should keep doing exactly what she’s doing!
