Critics grand slammed

Sports | 13 Sep 2018

A section of the cartoon of Serena Williams that has been widely condemned as a racist depiction of the tennis great has been reprinted on the front page of the Melbourne-based Herald Sun, which published it initially.

The trimmed-down cartoon featuring 23-time Grand Slam winner jumping on a broken racket during her dispute with a chair umpire in the US Open final was among caricatures of other famous people under the headline "Welcome to the PC World."

The newspaper defended cartoonist Mark Knight's depiction of Williams and remarked that if "the self-appointed censors" get their way on this issue "our new politically correct life will be very dull indeed."
