Serena Williams, one of top athletes in the world, beat Russia's Elena Vesnina 6-2, 6-0 in a record-breaking 49 minutes—the fastest ever for a Wimbledon semi-finals. Little did she know there was a large contingent of people who were more outraged by her nipples during the match than impressed by her historic feat, and these people took to the Internet to express their displeasure.
Even a popular golfer, Georgie Bingham added in her two cents. To her defense, it sounds like she doesn't know what she's talking about - America loves nudity, don't we?
Luckily, these voices weren't the loudest. Serena fans and intelligent human beings past the stage of puberty alike expressed their outrage over the outrage - and rightfully so.
"Why is everyone focus on Serena Williams nipples? OMG she just advance to her 9th wimbledon final," tweeted one. "All this controversy over seeing Serena Williams' nipples when in Friends you could ALWAYS see Rachel's," pointed out another. "Not only is Serena Williams criticised for being 'manly', she is now being trolled, because her nipples are seen protruding through her top," tweeted a third.
Meanwhile, Serena's first tweet after securing her spot in the Wimbledon final was about the murder of Philando Castile.
She obviously has more important things on her mind.
