Osaka: Creeping Out Over Reaction


Naomi Osaka is not about to let some social media critics give her the summertime blues.

Earlier this month, the two-time Grand Slam champion posted a photo of herself wearing a yellow swimsuit on Twitter.

Some social media trolls took aim at Osaka suggesting she was tarnishing her "image" sharing the shot.

Osaka isn't having it.

Speaking directly to critics in a tweet Osaka wrote "I wear swimsuits to the pool. Why do you feel you can comment on what I can wear?"

"I just wanna say it’s creeping me out how many people are commenting @ me to maintain my “innocent image” and “don’t try to be someone your not”," Osaka wrote. "You don’t know me, I’m 22, I wear swimsuits to the pool. Why do you feel like you can comment on what I can wear?"




So far, more than 20,000 people have "loved" Osaka's tweet.
