Why this Serena Williams magazine cover has caused outrage

Magazine cover featuring Serena Williams faces backlash

A GQ research manager named Mick Rouse responded to a reader on Twitter to explain the use of the quotes by designer Virgil Abloh. On Williams' cover, the original "Men" header appears to be crossed out and replaced with "Woman" in black ink and quotation marks.

Abloh collaborated with Williams and Nike for the player's US Open outfit which featured "Serena" in quotations on her trainers and "Logo" on her tutu dress.

The magazine announced that Michael B. Jordan, Henry Golding and Jonah Hill were some of its Men of the Year, and that the all-time tennis great was its sole Woman of the Year.

Dropping hints about what Serena talked about during the interview, the magazine, which described her as the Champion of the year said, "No matter how you cut it, Serena Williams had a remarkable year".

The internationally-acclaimed men's publication, understandably trying its best to appease a wider range of readers, picked the 37-year-old tennis champ as its Woman of the Year for 2018.

On the other hand, Longbow says that Apple is increasing orders for the iPhone 8 , iPhone 8 Plus and some other older models. Speculation from news organizations like Reuters are reporting that the company to which Lumentum is referring to is Apple.

In a teaser, the magazine promised that Williams will discuss "the US Open moment heard around the world, along with her plans for the future, her thoughts on Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court appointment and what it's like to be a black woman in America in 2018". "I was different to [sister] Venus: She was thin and tall and attractive, and I am strong and muscular - and handsome, but, you know, it was just totally different".

Williams' has been in the topic of heated public debate earlier this year.

Herald Sun's cartoonist, Mark Knight, published a caricature of Williams having a tantrum while jumping on her racket, which caused further anger. "(No, I just work hard and I was born with this badass body and proud of it)", Serena wrote.

She also addressed the issue in May. It has been said I don't belong in Women's sports - that I belong in Men's - because I look stronger than many other women do.
