Naomi Osaka isn’t playing around with journalist Megyn Kelly and put her on blast after the journalist took a swipe at Osaka’s recent cover on Sports Illustrated.
“Since saying she’s too introverted to talk to the media after tennis matches, Naomi Osaka has launched a reality show, a Barbie, and now is on the cover of the SI swimsuit issue,” conservative sports buff Clay Travis tweeted.
“Let’s not forget the cover of (& interview in) Vogue Japan and Time Mag!” an embittered Kelly replied.
Obviously, there aren’t more pressing issues for Kelly to report on than what Osaka does in her free time.
But Osaka made time to break it down for the staunch Republican.
“Seeing as you’re a journalist I would’ve assumed you would take the time to research what the lead times are for magazines, if you did that you would’ve found out I shot all of my covers last year,” Osaka clapped back. “Instead your first reaction is to hop on here and spew negativity, do better Megan [sic].”
Osaka then hit the block button on Kelly — which was well-deserved.
“Poor @naomiosaka blocked me while taking a shot at me (guess she’s only tough on the courts),” Kelly wrote. “She is apparently arguing that she shot her many covers b/4 publicly claiming she was too socially anxious to deal w/press.”
“Truth is she just doesn’t like Qs she can’t control. Admit it,” she added.
We’re not surprised. We don’t expect much common sense from the woman who defended blackface on national television.
“But what is racist?” the former NBC host on air. “Because you do get in trouble if you are a white person who puts on blackface on Halloween, or a black person who puts on whiteface for Halloween. Back when I was a kid that was OK, as long as you were dressing up as, like, a character.”
NBC didn’t hang about. They offered her a huge paycheck to exit to the left.
