Serena Williams has been deemed too sexy for television.

A few days after a link to the tennis star's new 2K Sports video game commercial was Tweeted, the company received enough backlash over the spot - which features a scantily-clad Serena taking on a scantily-clad model - to announce it would not air on TV.

"As part of the process for creating marketing campaigns to support our titles, we pursue a variety of creative avenues," 2K Sports wrote in a statement. "This video is not part of the title's final marketing campaign and its distribution was unauthorized."

But it was clearly meant to hit the airways, as Serena Tweeted last week to be on the lookout for "awesomely sexy video."

And, come on, 2K Sports, billboards of Rafael Nadal shirtless are all over Europe.

What do you think? Should the ad have been pulled?

Tennis champion Serena Williams has been hospitalized in L.A. with a pulmonary embolism, a blood clot in the lungs. She suffered the health scare Monday.

Williams looked stunning at Sunday's Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party just hours before the unexpected condition surfaced.

Serena had been spotted at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A. several times over the past week regarding the conditioned, but it worsened this week.

"Serena Williams underwent emergency treatment at Cedars for a hematoma she suffered as a result of treatment for a more critical situation," her rep says.

"Last week, Serena suffered from a pulmonary embolism [a blood clot in the lungs] which was discovered upon her return to L.A.," the star's rep adds.

"She had been in New York for ongoing issues with her foot. Doctors continue to monitor her situation closely to avoid additional complications."

Here's wishing Serena a fast, speedy recovery.

September has been a wild month for bizarre, inappropriate outbursts and YouTube Hall of Fame moments, ranging from music to sports and even politics.

Which was the worst meltdown of them all? Let's review the contenders:

  • U.S. Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.) wasn't a celebrity until his "You lie!" outburst during President Obama's health care speech. That was an all-timer.
  • Serena Williams, tennis legend, completely imploded with a profane tirade at a judge in the U.S. Open semifinals, leading to her disqualification.
  • Kanye West interrupted Taylor Swift's acceptance speech at the MTV Music Video Awards and belligerently said Beyonce's video was way better.

None of the above are likely to live down these infamous tirades anytime soon. But which was the most inappropriate? Vote in THG's survey below ...

Whose outburst was the most inappropriate?

We don't normally post about sports or sports figures at THG.

But there are exceptions, like when Tom Brady goes shirtless, Shawne Merriman possibly beats up Tila Tequila or Boise State and Oregon get into an epic melee.

Or last night's outburst by Serena Williams in the U.S. Open tennis semifinals, which will rank among some of the classic YouTube moments in sports history.

After being called for a foot fault - which is non-reviewable - in her match with Kim Clijsters, Serena absolutely lost her $h!t at the judge that made the call.

Her quote: "I'm gonna shove this ball down your f*%king throat." Really. And Williams' rant kept going long after that, reportedly with much more vulgarity.

Serena Williams' outburst was equally notable for its impact on the match.

Amazingly, Serena was already penalized for smashing a racket earlier, which resulted in a warning. Her second outburst (at the judge) thus cost her a point.

Even more amazingly, she happened to be down match point at the time, so that point she was penalized ended the match, giving Clijsters a 6-4, 7-5 win!

And you think you've seen it all. Check out the video below of Serena's U.S. open outburst at the judge who called the most infamous foot fault in history:
