Serena Williams has the following message for her body-shaming critics: Strong is beautiful.
The 21-time Grand Slam champion took to Instagram this morning to share a photo of herself in a midair split. She captioned the photo, “Fearless #strongisbeautiful Just do it.”
Strong is beautiful, Serena, but we can’t just do a split in midair, girl. Are you gon’ cover the hospital bill (LOL)?
Serena’s inspiring message comes nearly three weeks after J.K. Rowling clapped back at a hater who argued that the Williams sister is built like a man.
Serena begins competing for her fifth consecutive Grand Slam title at next month’s US Open.
