But when you see this, art that reduces Serena Williams into a racist character, and erases Naomi Osaka's own blackness in order to emphasis Williams' (let's not forget that Osaka is half-Haitian and has lived in America most of her life even though most media has ignored that), surely you can see that this is what people are mad about.
Williams and Osaka's match at Arthur Ashe Stadium in Queens, New York, was interrupted by several confrontations between Williams and tournament officials, as umpire Carlos Ramos handed her several violations throughout the contest.
"We already talked. We have a great relationship", Williamssaid of Giudicelli last month, laughing as she added, "Everything is fine, guys".
What has resulted is a firestorm of controversy, which has only been fueled by Williams saying during the match that Ramos would never have issued warnings to a man and demanding an apology. At the trophy ceremony later that evening, the audience booed loudly; both Osaka and Williams cried, before embracing each other, as Williams came to her competitor's side.
On Monday's "Off the Bench" podcast with Danny Kanell and Raja Bell, Bell had plenty to say on the topic.
Williams was incensed in the first instance when Ramos assessed her a code violation for receiving coaching from her box, although coach Patrick Mouratoglou admitted in an interview with ESPN that he was trying to advise her with a hand gesture and said that all coaches do it.
"I just feel like the fact that I have to go through this is just an example for the next person that has emotions, and that want to express themselves, and want to be a strong woman".
2009 US Open semi-final: Already on a warning for racquet abuse earlier in the match, Williams launched into an angry outburst at a lineswoman after she was called for a foot fault which gave Kim Clijsters two match points. "Maybe they'll do us right in Australia since the USA couldn't do me right". "I think there has to be some consistency across the board. I don't think sexism was a part in it", she said.
"I'm not even looking at my boss", Venus pleaded. Communications of any kind, audible or visible, between a player and a coach may be construed as coaching. Coaching from the stands is allowed in the US Open qualifying rounds between points.
"The WTA supports coaching through its on-court coaching rule, but further review is needed".
French tennis player Alize Cornet received a code violation a few weeks ago for briefly taking off her shirt on the court. "We either have a rule for all times or we don't".
"Why is there so much difference?" There has to be a clear rule to it.
Azarenka, former US Open champion, tweeted: "If it was a men's match, this wouldn't happen like this. It is the inconsistency".
