Serena Williams In Hot Water Over Controversial Comment

Posted: Updated:

Serena Williams is one of the world's top tennis stars, but now she is causing quite a stir off the court.

She recently gave an interview to Rolling Stone where she made some controversial comments regarding the Steubenville rape trial. 

That trial involved high school football players Trent Mays and Ma'lik Richmond.  They are serving time for raping an intoxicated 16-year-old girl at a high school party in Ohio last summer.

Pictures of the attack later wound up online.  The boys were convicted back in March  and they will serve at least one year in juvenile prison.

Serena's interview with Rolling Stone was posted online yesterday.  In the article, she appears partially blame the victim. 

Take a look at our segment, where Karen reads Serena's quote.

Of course, Twitter is all over this one, with several people expressing their disappointment over her quote.
