Serena Williams heavily criticised for blaming rape victim

The world champion is being heavily criticized over remarks she made about the victim of the Steubenville Ohio rape case. A 16-year-old girl who was raped by high school football players, Trent Mays and Ma'Lik Richmond, who were each sentenced to a year in juvenile jail in March this year.

During an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Serena blamed the girl for putting herself in a position where the boys could rape her. She said:
"Do you think it was fair, what they got? (The high school football player) They did something stupid, but I don't know. I'm not blaming the girl, but if you're a 16-year-old and you're drunk like that, your parents should teach you: Don't take drinks from other people. She's 16, why was she that drunk where she doesn't remember? It could have been much worse. She's lucky. Obviously, I don't know, maybe she wasn't a virgin, but she shouldn't have put herself in that position, unless they slipped her something, then that's different."
People were outraged by her remarks and blasted her on social media. See the Tweets after the cut

but Serena is right.at 16 she is drinking with guys to d extent of getting drunk.living a carefree life,a minor for dat matter.

Okay guess who's back bitches!!! Yes, I am back! Linda you need to work on your blog 'cause if it exceeds 200+ comments it eats the new comments and I won't be able to see or comment again on a story I like! I missed all my birthday S/O's because of this! Hahaha I still love you though! My birthday was such a blast I had to take a week off commenting on your blog. I'm glad I finally got my wish! My car!!! How's everybody? My friends/haters? Haha PRINCE NATHAN is back & I'm not even joking!!! My avaataarrr

I guess Nike will take Serena off their sponsorship with this.

hmmm said...

She is right but there are just some things Americans dont like to hear. Like a girl who is walking around almost naked with cleavage, rubbing her nana on all the boys and some out of control freak rapes her, all they focus on is the fact that she was raped. They wont talk about her no leading people on. No one deserves to be raped but girls should also comport themselves in a decent manner and not do things that can put them in harms way. Its a 2way street

Joy you are ignorant. No matter what state she was in no one deserves to be raped. Serena is an illiterate and ignorant world champion!

Now i see why rape is rampant in black communities in US and in Africa because our cultures and our people tolerate these rapist baggers. Now i hate Serena forever. Go to hell Serena Williams, i hate you!

Whether she was drunk or not; nobody deserves to be raped; it is psychologically damaging; granted everyone is entitled to their own opinion but if you don't have anything good to say or filter your words, keep your mouth shut.

Joy wateva, derz no justification for rape ok? Don't ever blame the victim. What is wrong is wrong, if u talk like this then ur a twisted 'woman.

Anonymous said...

but she is not lying but just like with domestic abuse, rape is always one sided. a 16yr old has no business drinking or using drugs. It impairs judgment...

Anonymous said...

In a way she is right. Serena grew up differently from the average American teenager. Her parents were strict Jehovah's Witness, she would not have been drinking at 16. However she could have phrased it differently, to accommodate people's sensibilities. More like sent a piece of advice to young girls out there, 16 is too young to get wasted on a night out!

Anonymous said...

Serena, is right!!! Why is a 16yr old gal getting drunk? Its not like they spiked her drink or what? Teens these days are just stupid!!! They party like they is no tomorrow and when things go wrong don't wanna take responsibility for their actions!

mimi said...

NO ONE SHOULD GET RAPED EVER but we cant control everyone around us, but we can prevent bad happening to us as much as we can. there are crazy people out there so we should not do things to make the evil in them come near our dwelling place..the girl should also be scolded

sasha bone said...

is the issue here rape by strangers or rape by people u know?

Hmm...at 16,if ur ignorant enuf to get that drunk,there are consequences to pay...even though the perpetrators shld be brought to justice.

Dozie Odigboh said...

I don't think Serena is condoning the rapists or their terrible deeds-she only tries to point out that young people (people in general) have to begin to take responsibility for the actions they take... Especially if its one that would put them in harms way! perhaps she might have added a word of sympathy here and there. Maybe she sees something else differently?

BeBe said...

But its true. The victim has some blame. If ur drunk off ur ass at a party ur asking for trouble.

Who are the parents of this girl?
Instead of reading her books, this chic wanted to form big girls by hanging out with sports guys?
DID ANYONE SEND HER?
As much as i do not condone rape, girls these days are something else.
16 year old drunk teen. Where did she even get the alcohol from?

She got raped not because she deserved it BUT BECAUSE SHE WAS IN BAD COMPANY. Oya, learn to choose well those you move with .

Unfortunately, this is one of the desastrous consequences of wanting "belong" with "in" groups and "hot" cliques at any cost.If u do not end with a compromised reputation, it's something fatal that happens.
who doesn't know the reputation of athletes abroad?
Will our girls ever learn?
I pity parents....raising a child,especially a female is such a tough job nowadays

Maybe Serena lacked tact in her approach but her point is pertinent.

MY TURN said...

Serana sure soiled her hands with this one oh. No matter what RAPE IS WRONG....Its a direct violation on human rights and punishable by the law. The boys shouldn't have taken advantage of the girl in her vulnerable state. I remember the big brother episode years ago when whats his name fingered ofuneka when she was drunk, the whole of Africa went maaaaad, he soiled her perfectly clean slate and painted himself a monster. I hope Serena doesn't loose it all with this careless slip#sigh

orela dimples said...

serena said it ryt
did d boys drag her from her parents house?
wat d boys did was wrong but the gal is partially to blame
if she hasnt bin drunk n probably not tried to do things her mother regrets doing she wont be digitally raped.
shes damn lucky in some rape cases gone worse she would av bin dead by now.

tope sofe said...

I totally disagree and not only do I find ur comments distasteful, its also insensitive. Nothing excuses rape. Tell me you never made wrong choices or bad decisions when u were 16 and I'll nominate u for sainthood. Saying its her fault is the same as saying, its a rich mans fault for being robbed by a greedy thief, or that its right to abduct someone else's child because u r barren? Train ur sons well n rape wld be a thing of d past. Wld u say u son is right to rape a drunk friend? *smh*

Nigerians are bloody ignorant sometimes. How on earth can u say Serena is right for this thoughtless comment? She is trying to play devils advocate but to no substantial end. This is what u call village mentality. The teenage girl got drunk. Who said this means she lacks home training or is irresponsible? Oh because she made a mistake right? Which one of you commentators even at your old ages haven't made a mistake? For goodness sake she is a teenager, she will misbehave, but this should not subject her to rape. I agree, she was at the wrong place at the worst time, but she did not ask to be raped, that was the choice of the rapist to force himself on her, simply because she was not in a position to defend herself. The incident in itself should serve as a warning to teenage girls I agree, but the real warning should be directed to wicked men out there who are capable of such acts to know there will be serious consequences for such violations against human rights! As Serena is a public figure, but most importantly a woman- she should have pointed out the seriousness of their act and if she HAD to include the girl at all, state that it should serve as a warning for women to be more protective of themeselves not question if the men deserved the punishment, she is mad!

Anonymous said...

Like one of the Serena's fans said, there is no 'but' in rape. wrong is wrong. Do those same men that rape women on the reason that they are indecently dressed not see naked mad women? if the case is that they cannot control their animal urges then you would also find them raping naked women. Do not excuse violence and madness on petty things. Its people like you that have caused victims to commit suicide and even murder. India has the highest rape cases and the women are very well dressed. Rape is a psychological. It is never a 2way street.

Serena, don't listen to the haters!
It is quite clear from your comments that you are not saying what the guys did was right. You just want young girls to take some responsibility. Rape is rape and it is wrong and every rape case is different. But young girls and women should be taught by their parents/families to keep Safe as there will always be predators and opportunists out there in the world.
Those boys should be punished and educated on their wrong.

I think this is simply about knowing you limits and the age has little consequence in this instance. If u get so drunk or drugged up that u loose control of your senses you are setting your self up for doom whether you like it or not. It could be rape, could be Overdosing, alcohol poisoning, accidents... the list is endless. and these things could happen whether you are 16 or 60! After all, many us us were in uni or even 200level at 16. Bottom line, know your limits and know your company.

You guys seriously need to wake up and smell the coffee. Lets call a spade a spade, you set yourself out there to be raped, you get raped, simple! You don't go about getting drunk and no one lays a finger on you. The girl is just a guilty as the two guys who raped her as far as I'm concerned.

You people make it seem like the people that raped her are not her mates, they are the same boys that are her age and go to the same school wih her. Also theboys were also very as drunk as her, I'm not trying to justify rape Ehhhh, but people should learn to be very vigilant, there is always someone there trying to take advantage of you. There is always someone who will use u whenever they have the chance to. So girls should learn to be more carefull

Rape is not justified. Young girls should also not put themselves in a position that increases their chances of being raped. That is my interpretation of Serena's statement. I do not think that there is anything wrong with what she said. Too often in American society, people do not take responsibility for how their actions place them and others in untenable positions. Serena spoke the truth in an overly politically correct society that turns a blind eye to the promiscuity and recklessness of its young people (male and female).

If you don't get serena point, you probably av a low IQ, in no way is she supporting the rapist . If yall think you can reduce rape by only sending the rapist to jail then good luck in reducing it, victims need to take responsibility, there are reason why teanger are not allowed to take achohol, this are some reason, excess intake leading to poor decisions, even adults are advised to drink responsibly.

If this teanager had gotten herself drunk, picked up a car, drove it,and killed somone in +h¬ process would you be sending the dead to prison because because she was drunk and she is just a teanager, no, she wld be in jail for that, serena is only advising teangers the best way she can to always be responsible at all time,

Serena is right! 1st of all she said she's not blaming the girl but I blame the girl big time. She's just 16 it's illegal to drink at that age. Isn't it? Her being raped is unfortunate but it could have been worse, She could have been killed and she put her stupid 16 going on 30 self in that situation. The boys on the other hand r also foolish.

Serena never justified their rape at all..........the people blaming serena are stupid! Never a time did she say its right.What she's saying is simple! Girls be wise! An advice you will give ur daughter? She warning future victims! These factors are contributory,though not an excuse! When the govt says,kip your money in a bank!are they justifying robbery.or if your neighbour comes home crying he was robbed but was carrying 900k in his briefcase by 11pm along oshodi expressway strolling.won't u blame him in ur mind?are u justifying robbery? Truth be told 4 once.Serena excused her if she was drugged but if she purposely sat drinkin wit men at dat age in a confined place,rape is not far frm what she bargained for!

Even zoo keepers don't kip goats with lions.many guys have animalistic tendencies especially at that age so girls should learn to protect themselves

16+drinking DOES NOT give anyone the right to rape you. Even if she showed them her vagina, she does NOT deserve to be raped. RAPE IS A VIOLENT CRIME. And no woman or man deserves for it to happen to them. For all you NIgerians supporting such, you better change or GOD will punish you merciessly. That's my prayer for today.

Good Lawwwddd!!! Have some of u lost ur minds?! Why would you try to justify such a thing??? So if a chick wears anything skimpy or revealing its ok to rape her???

Unknown said...

What dirty 2 way street??? Even if a lady is walking around nude & flirting with every1 she comes across, she shouldn't be raped. So cos a lot of men have little or no self control, all women should be dressed like nuns? If u are horny & have no booty call, get a prostitute or ur Vaseline, whichever suits u but don't go around justifying such wickedness cos that's just wot it is.

Such a shame her only offence serena ie. is going to be her big mouth. That is american men, you dont blame the deceased (as long as they did no wrong) or a rape victime. You never ever do that.
However hearing this story in other parts of the world, starting with Nigeria, we all know what the 16 year old girl will get. WHY WERE YOU DRUNK? WHAT IS A GOOD GIRL DOING IN THE MIDST OF BOYS PARTYING AWAY??? Thats our culture, we can get away with it, but not for the AMERICANS OR IN OTHER ADVANCED COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD. Serena will be apologizing veryyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy soon just watch out for it.

People are funny sha. You are drinking with boys. Alcohol is the highest aphrodisiac if you dont know. She became drunk and the guys become drunk too. What next do you think will happen!
She should have been there with one guy sha....at least, the guy wont allow another touch her. Ehn hen!

If this happens to my daughter, so be it! Why the fuck will you be drinking at a party with boys and you get drunk! Nobody drinks to stupor and think right..No one! No one!!!!!

Serena your fucking right! She never said rape is good! She was of the opinion the victim shouldn't have been that drunk to be unable to protect herself! The rapist should be punished!

People are just stupid. You make choices and you pay for it...she musta flirted n gotten drunk ontop, her reward is RAPE. the people dat raped her, their reward is JAIL... look again...who loose? they will free dem later, will she ever be free? That's d lesson. Take it or leave it.

Rape is wrong, demonic etc. but actions have consequences. Leave ur car door open, it's burgled, God punish the thieves but then, u left it open.The stupid boys already have a good defence, they were drunk!
Moral of the story, some get lucky, u may not. And Serena it's aii. People usually can't stand the truth.
And for those of u now hating her, buhahahaha to u. Like she knew u liked her before. Shio

Serena is so right.. I've been a victim of rape and looking back I can say I hung out with the wrong crowd. growing up I was taught how to steer clear some teenage issues n I can proudly say I did but I was never warned about rape. never the less I am to blame for that incident bcos looking back I realise that if I took the advice'beware of the friends u can't bring home to meet us' rather than wait for a lecture on rape, I'd av bin all right.serena knows wat she is saying....this isn't a case of rape by strangers, robbers or muggers. It is all on the girl! It's high time every one knew that hell is empty and the devils are here so stop saying why would someone hurt another! Why do u steal, why do you lie, why do you cheat, why do you kill??? it should not be news any more that people have evil hearts. I wish we could all stop lying to our hearts when we get warning signals.

Sooo 8 yr old girls that are raped put themselves in a bad situation abi??????

How about 4 year olds that are raped?? how about those raped in their homes???

if its not consensual sex no matter the situation rape is rape. if someone had behaved indecently you behave and go your way.

What nonsense is this???

I'm a mother of a 9 yr old girl and this is what I tell her- If your veejajay and breasts were detachable would you give it to the boys in your class to hold it for you while you are away? Well, it's like getting drunk at a party basically telling the guys whilst I'm passed out hold my breasts and veejajay for safe keeping. Hey let the victim be accountable for her stupid actions lest countless girls will be rape and abused if they think they can get drunk have nothing bad happen to them.

Chinonye Nwakwoke said...

Evils! Ask a therapist the psychology behind rape. Then, you'll understand dat it doesn't just happen. Dose guys must have been harbouring that thought for a reali long time b4 they executed it, being her friends. Rape is a huge problem borne by the perpetrators. It isn't justifiable in any situation. In fact, it shouldn't be crossing your mind as a human being.

My condolence to the victim. It is well.

Anonymous said...

Serena is right. Why was a 16 year old drunk in the first place? Americans are afraid of the truth. Maybe if she hadn't been drunk, the rape wouldn't have occurred. They like to grow up so quickly.

Anonymous said...

People should learn to read. She didn't blame the girl for the incident. Neither did she say what the boys did was right. "but I don't know. I'm not blaming the girl, but if you're a 16-year-old and you're drunk like that, your parents should teach you....." She just highlighted the fact that the gurl is living her life on a fast lane. She didn't really talk about the rape. So, don't kill her abeg

I live in the UK and see these silly ass kids roam around and go out half naked, party, drink and get drunk like there is no tomorrow. Maybe if they paid more attention to their studies the world would be a better place. I am 32 and have never been drunk in my entire life, cos I have priorities in life and alcohol is not one. If a young lady decides alcohol is her priority then she deserves anything she gets. I have no pity for such. We do not live in a perfect world so people need to act responsibly

So serena is saying that my 14 year old cousin who was rapped and killed by armed robbers in the presence of her parents deserved to be raped? or the 2 girls that were raped and town off a bus in india which later killed one of them deserved it?? you are an agent of darkness for siding with the rapist. Even if she was 12 years old and fully naked dosnt give any dog or pig the right to rape any girl. I HATE YOU SERENA I HATE U WITH ALL MY HEART, you even a lady for Gods sake

I applaud your honesty. Do not put yourself in a situation like that, the world of today you can TRUST no one...if flesh and blood let you down what more your friends. People be very careful the heart of man is wicked. What are you doing drinking so much at 16 anyway?...your not even considered an ADULT yet...teenagers need to STOP being in a hurry to grow up!

Different circumstances. I don't see a 4 or 8 yr old getting drunk, at least that's unusual. There r sick pple who rape, no excuse for them or anyone who rapes. That's the truth.

However, at 16, u r not a child! U r expected to know actions have consequences. All these Mike Tyson scenario rapes are never one way blame. U followed boys to drink, really?? When u plant maize, don't expect yam to grow.

Anonymous said...

Serena did not blame the girl. She only condemned the poor upbringing of children that left a 16yr old at the mercy of booze. Unfortunately, the message is lost to this lost generation.

Anonymous said...

Are most people on this post just acting ignorant? She never blamed the act on the girl she only highlighted a fact "unique" to this case, that it 'might' have been avoided had the young girl adhered to the national minimum drinking act of the US.

This need not apply to every other rape case. I do agree however, that its a painful and sensitive topic to discuss considering the trauma attached to these incidents, but it's best to always approach such matters from as many angles as possible.

Doesn't change the fact that the guys involved are pigs and should be locked up for life but please lets not deny all wrong doing surrounding this particular case.

And the guys that raped her is 100yrs..mtcheew..the guys would probably be same age group cos they refered to them as juvenile and am sure they all got high together so they shud all be punished.the gurl got the rape and the guys are going to jail so the blame is for both 100percent..I support serena's comment......fuck the gurl..maybe truth or dare was the case...

All u illiterates saying Serena is wrong, didn't u read her comment? Let me clarify it eh, as a lady u walk in a very lonely road at night and u get raped by a gang. You obviously put urself in that position. I don't really get the way some of u reason.

Anonymous said...

She shouldn't have asked if it was fair to punish the guys. They deserve that sentence and even higher. Under no circumstance should anyone be raped.

However, most young people nowadays either do not have home training, or they refuse to take their training, what the heck is a 16 year old doing getting drunk with guys? How stupid is that? Didn't she ever hear of rape? Most of us went to secondary school, and unless you are utterly daft, as a girl, you should know NEVER to go get drunk with teenage boys, because their hormones are everywhere, and all they think about is sex (even the adult males)

Let this be a lesson to young girls, try the best you can not to go get drunk with young guys, you'll most likely get raped, go in a group with other girls if you must attend a party, and leave with those girls

SERENA IS A COMPLETE IDIOT FOR HER STATEMENT!!! if she ever gets raped at any point it would be because of those skimpy bikini's she poses in all the time or her skimpy clothes on the court! mmmssscchhheewww! The woman is a complete moron and those boys deserve adult criminal sentences and to be put on the sex offenders list for life because RAPE IS MOSTLY PREMEDITATED!!! I'm so disgusted by this silly woman! All of you supporting you all deserve any wickedness coming your way if you can defend the actions of rapists!

The point is, good upbringing or not, she was a teenager, its smth teenagers do, to feel cool, they drink they smoke jes to feel like they r grown up,they had waitied all their lives, heard d gist all about n can't jes wait to do what their elder siblings do, drink alcohol n yes even sex! We can't watch our children 24/7 buh we can only pray that they dnt do smth stupid or come to harm, when I was 16 I was in 100lvl already,n I loved vodka, cos it was what er1 was doing, truth b told am 21 nw n I hardly drink cos to me v been there n done that, the only question I can ask is, were these guys she was drinkin with her friends? Or some random boys, then we can start tokin abt her being smart n nt smart, most teenagers drink, get off ur high horses n b true to urselves... Especially the ones from very strict homes... We can all but pray for r kids n bring them up right, the rest is jes life

I think Serena is right about our own action and been accountable for our action. I almost got raped when I was about 15yrs old in Nigeria, my best friend set me up, the doors to the house was locked,she invited me to her house not knowing that she had collaborated with her brothers and brother's friend. We entered her house together and she left me there, but I knew something wasn't right, so I stood up and I was walking towards the door, but they started on me by beating me first. But thank God I was vigilatant, I fought really bad protecting my property, even though they pressed my breast, I fought with all that I got and thank God for (nepa), they took the light so they couldn't see me, so I kept quiet and in the dark, walked quietly towards the door and I was able to free myself. I ran like a goat that a lion was chasing. I am agreeing with Serena because, if I was drunk or drugged, I won't even have all the energy to fight my way out. Rape is not cool, it affect people for life. I was affected by the situation, not to thrust any human. I didn't do anything wrong, my ex bestfriend is my distance cousin.
