Tennis star Serena Williams has responded to Ilie Natase’s racist comment towards her and the unborn child she is carrying.
The 23 grand slam winner announced last week that she is expecting a child with Co-Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian.
Nastase, who is the Romania Fed Cup captain, was quoted by ESPN as saying “Let’s see what color it has. Chocolate with milk?”.,
He was also responsible for the controversy that arose during Johanna Konta’s game forcing the British player off the court in tears.
In response to Nastase’s comments, Williams said in an Instagram post:
“It disappoints me to know we live in a society where people like Ilie Nastase can make such racist comments towards myself and unborn child, and sexist comments against my peers.
“I have said it once and I’ll say it again, this world has come so far but yet we have so much further to go.”
