Alexis Ohanian slams Serena Williams critic Ion Tiriac.
Ex-Tennis star Ion Tiriac, who is now the director of the Madrid Open has recently taking a jab at Serena Williams on a Romanian TV show.
He was quoted saying that “At this age and the weight she is now, she does not move as easily as she did 15 years ago,”
“Serena was a sensational player. If she had a little decency, she would retire! From all points of view.”
Tirac has been known over the years not to be a fan of the multiple times Tennis Champion Serena Williams.
Few years ago he also made a statement that got the champion In 2018 to called him both “ignorant and sexist’ when he made comments about Serena’s weight harping that the sport needs to shine a spotlight on other players outside of her.
However, this time around Serena’s husband Alexis Ohanian, 37, the co-founder of Reddit the third largest website in the US and a multiple investor in many businesses stood up for his wife and lashed back at Tirac.
Ohanian didn’t hold back as he called the 81 years old a racist/sexist clown.
He also added “2021 and no holding back when a racist/sexist clown with a platform comes for my family.”
Serena, 39, is yet to make any comment on the matter.
