We begged the masses not to over-analyze Serena Williams’ crip walking moment, but of course it’s become a thing. So much of a thing that it’s beginning to overshadow Williams’ dominating gold medal performance over Maria Sharapova.
The usual suspects have chimed in and criticized her, but to her credit, she is blocking it all out. Telling Us Magazine that she doesn’t care about how the critics feel about her choice of post-match celebration.
“It’s getting so much attention,” Williams told Us Weekly Monday in London. “It just happened. I was so excited that it just came out,” she said, laughing. “I guess I’m good at it!”
What does Williams have to say about the “crip walk” complaints? “I dont’ care. That’s the least of my worries . . . I’m so excited I was able to do the dance. I’m glad I did it!”
You see what happens when we over-analyze an innocent mistake? Instead of talking about such a great performance by one of the best tennis players of all time, we’re fixated on something that should even matter in the grand scheme of things.
