When Caroline Wozniacki decided to impersonate Serena Williams once again by stuffing her chest and behind with towels during a recent exhibition match, it likely never occurred to her that she would be accused of being racist. Williams and Wozniacki are friends, which is why Caroline thinks it’s a shame that people would say that about her when all she was trying to do was have a little fun. “It’s been done a million times before by different players,” Wozniacki told the New York Times. “I would never have done it if I didn’t know Serena well. Obviously I know Serena very well. She’s a funny girl, and I knew she would take it with a smile and wouldn’t have anything against it.” Serena did take it with a smile. In fact, she defended Wozniacki against those her were calling it racist by bringing up the fact that Andy Roddick and Novak Djokovic have done the same thing in the past. Very few — if any — people accused Roddick of Djokovic of being racist. Nevertheless, Wozniacki said she will think twice before doing anything like that again in the future. “It is because there is nothing really in that that I saw as racist or anything, so obviously I think it’s a pity you can’t just have a bit of fun,” she explained. I tend to agree. Williams doesn’t have a big butt because she’s black. She has a big butt because she has a big butt. If you want to call Wozniacki insensitive for poking fun at her body type, that’s one thing. Calling it racist is a stretch.
