'Gone Too Far': Amul's Latest Cartoon on Serena Williams Leaves No One Impressed

News18.com
Amul's latest cartoon which covers the US Open final controversy has not gone down well with the internet.

The US Open 2018 women’s final match made more headlines over tennis-player Serena Williams' verbal spat with umpire Carlos Ramos than Naomi Osaka's first Grand Slam. And not wanting to let any trending news pass by (well, almost never), Amul has finally published a cartoon based on the infamous fight.

While heated debates between tennis fans continue on social media, with some supporting Serena, and others criticising the tennis star for her behaviour on the court, Amul decided to not miss the opportunity.

But Amul's cartoon has clearly not gone down well with Twitterati.

Not this time Amul. Coaching? May be yeah, but taking away her point calling verbal abuse, not so much!

This is so disrespectful and utterly out of line Amul

I love you Amul. But this is BS. Male players who act the same way are not penalised because they are just considered ‚passionate sportsmen‘ with a fighting spirit.

Wrong one this time Amul. Calling her protest a tantrum is demeaning.

Done in a very bad taste.

The Internet has been calling out several other cartoons published by various media publications for their racist, if not an insensitive portrayal of Serena Williams. Amul just joined the bandwagon.
