Where’s the compassion, Serena? In a new interview, the Wimbledon winner said that the victim of the Steubenville, Ohio rape case should not have gotten so drunk, and she shouldn’t have ‘put herself in that position.’
Serena Williams made a number of controversial remarks about the Steubenville, Ohio rape case in a new interview with Rolling Stone. Serena suggested that the 16-year-old girl, who was tragically raped by two classmates, only has herself to blame because she was drunk. Serena said the girl “shouldn’t have put herself in that position,” and she chastises the girl’s parents for not teaching her the perils of drinking alcohol.
