Many others also pointed out that the tennis legend was married to a “real one” and that they now understood why she fell in love with him.

Despite the praise, there were a few people who claimed that Serena had “forced” her husband to donate his future gains from Reddit to the black community. An accusation that Daily Mail recently reported that the mother of one has already addressed.

 “Fill my seat with a Black candidate, and I will use future gains on my Reddit stock to serve the Black community, chiefly to curb racial hate.”

Soon after the news went live, Hollywood Life noted that Serena reacted with a tweet that read, “Having diverse views on any boards is important. So proud of you, Alexis.”
