Caroline Wozniaki is being accused of bring a racist for her impersonation of Serena Williams the other day. The two are friends, Williams is on record as have given relationship advice to Caroline, and Wozniaki visited Serena in hospital when she had blood clots in her lungs. Why can't friends have a laugh and a joke without the R word being brought into it?

I agree, I don't believe it was racist at all. She was joking about her big boobs and bum. She was not saying all black people have big boobs and bum. It is completely ridiculous

Not seen anything.

Racism is such a nasty, hateful thing that the name should only be used when it really applies, and not flung about at the slightest excuse.

It sounds quite rude (although perhaps acceptable between friends if they have that sort of understanding), but not racially rude, surely?

No , we must not allow humour to be killed off due to over sensitivty. Afterall we humans are the only beings having a laugh, But 2 gifted parrots might crack a joke with each other "Did you the hear the one about the parrot who was sick as a human."

Here is the video of it. She played one point with the tissues stuffed in her top and skirt. The crowd enjoyed and it was in Brazil, which is anything but a racist country.
