In this era of social media, there are usually dozens of reaction to every word made public especially by celebrity. And that was Serena Williams got some backlash following a comment she made in a recent interview with Stellar magazine.
“I have so much respect for so many women [for giving birth],” Williams told “I am about to be a real woman now, you know? It’s going to be something incredibly impressive to go through.”
Some immediately took offense to her words, saying that many women choose not to have children while others cannot have children at all.
Here are some of the comments as captured by Essence Magazine
comment 1: Serena Williams voiced an opinion about herself and her life. HOW DARE SHE!!! it’s 2017 you can’t do that anymore.
comment 2: So, in your view, I’m not a real woman because I CHOSE not to have children?
comment 3: Plenty of real women do not have children….
