J.K. Rowling blasts ‘racist’ Serena Williams newspaper cartoon

A newspaper in Australia is catching a lot of heat over a cartoon that was trying to spoof Serena Williams’ incident at the U.S. Open, because it’s racist as hell.

The cartoon drawn by Mark Knight (editorial cartoonist for the Herald Sun newspaper) shows the tennis superstar stomping on her racket.

The cartoon has been blasted by athletes and celebs including J.K. Rowling who said,

“Well done on reducing one of the greatest sportswomen alive to racist and sexist tropes and turning a second great sportswoman into a faceless prop.” ESPN’s Jemele Hill noted the racism is “About as subtle as Fran Drescher’s voice.”
