Megyn Kelly Gets Slammed for "Bullying" Naomi Osaka Over Sports Illustrated


Why can't people just let Naomi Osaka breathe and live. Naomi decided to put some of her life on chill to deal with mental health and there is nothing wrong with that. She is gearing up to participate in the Olympics but before that, she was featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition. She became the first Black female athlete to be featured on the swimsuit cover, and she is also the first Haitian-Japanese woman to do so. But it comes with hate. Journalist Megyn Kelly just had to tweet something. Megyn calls out Naomi for not wanting to speak with the media but had the nerve to pose for media for a magazine cover as well as a few others magazine. Naomi tweeted then deleted, "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. Instead your first reaction is to hop on here and spew negativity, do better Megan." You would think that would be the end of that, but Megyn, a grown ass woman decided to basically bully a 23-year-old athlete. Even Sports Illustrated swimsuit editor, M.J. Day called Megyn a bully, telling her to do her due diligence in getting the full story before talking, according to Newsweek. Naomi even blocked Megyn on Twitter after the exchange, but you thought that would have kept Megyn quiet? Megyn then posted, "Poor @naomiosaka blocked me while taking a shot at me (guess she’s only tough on the courts). 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." Lady, get over it!
