Video: Tennis Player Caroline Wozniacki Accused of Racist Impersonation of Serena Williams

Tennis player Caroline Wozniacki recently stuffed towels in her bra and shorts in an imitation of Serena Williams, during an exhibition match against Maria Sharapova in Brazil (video below).

The Danish Wozniacki has now been accused of racism by some, reports the Daily Mail.

A article stated: "Given the history and current-day context of racialized standards of beauty, and the hypersexualization of people of color, when a white woman makes fun of a black women’s body, especially in a way that hypersexualizes her and draws on the stereotype of black women’s big butts, it’s racist."

Williams is famous for her curvy figure. In July, she tweeted a photo of her bottom, with the caption: "Hummm I think this onzie makes me butt look TOO big. Ugh. #BigButtproblems."

Wozniacki mentioned during a press conference after the game that she was performing an impression of her friend: "I really love the crowd here, they're open and they have a lot of fun."
