Newsflash, world: Women are not required to smile every minute of every day.
After yet another win at the U.S. Open, a male reporter didn't understand why Serena Williams wasn't smiling and laughing like a giddy teenager. According to this dudebro journalist, everyone smiles and laughs after they win! So why wasn't Serena? He asked what was wrong with the tennis star, and she responded with deadpan honesty, speaking to the desires of every woman who has ever been told to smile by a tone-deaf man.
"To be perfectly honest with you, I don't want to be here," she said. "I just want to be in bed right now and I have to wake up early to practice. And I don't want to answer any of these questions, and you guys keep asking me the same questions. It's not really -- you're not making it super enjoyable. Just being honest."
So there you have it, inquisitive men. Please never ever ask a woman why she's not smiling again.
All hail Queen Serena.
