Caroline Wozniacki as Serena Williams: Racist or Raucous?

by at . Comments

During a tennis exhibition in Brazil this week, Caroline Wozniacki impersonated Serena Williams, using towels to pad her chest and rear end.

Funny, right?

Not according to some critics, most notable Whoopi Goldberg.

Said Goldberg on The View yesterday:

"That visual is generally seen with a bone in their nose, and a short little skirt like she's got on. And that's why people see it as being somewhat racist, because it's an image that we have seen before.

"And I don't ever remember them making fun of any of the white tennis players... Why Serena? What is it about her? Is it her color? Is it the fact she's not 4 inches wide and weighs 6 ounces, and can beat all of their asses with her eyes closed?''

It's probably because Wozniacki and Serena are good friends, with the former visiting the latter at home this year when Williams was dealing with blood clot issues.

But... maybe not? You tell us: Is Wozniacki's impression racist?
