The 22-year-old Dane stuffed courtside towels down her kit to mimic the voluptuous figure of Williams.

Race card played again foolishly! There's enough real racist things happening out there to call stupid things like this racist! Not surprised though

Because if it were an impersonation of a white person, it would just be taking the P*$$, and that wouldn't be half as great a headline, so let's term it racist

Come on people get a grip, it's the Daily Mail. You can be 100% sure that stirring up shit, especially anything racial is on their agenda. Read the article, they hand picked some comments off of Twitter from anonymous people to make their point.

Social networking sites attract anonymous weirdo's, shock, horror! Nothing in that article suggests Williams was offended herself or called any race card.

Stop falling into the media trap, for goodness sake. There's too much hate and bullshit in the world already.

It's horrendous Steve, nothing more than a very biased comic. Quite a few of my american friends read and link it on FB. I'm constantly surprised with how popular it is in the States, I don't think it has quite the same reputation (yet) over there as it does here.

The Daily Mail is, without doubt, the worst newspaper in the UK. It specialises in stirring up outrage amongst 'middle englanders'. It specialises in printing stories about people who cheat the benefit system (especially if they are foreign), illegal immigrants, legal immigrants, the excesses of political correctness and so on.

It deliberately and cynically manipulates its readers. The more people they can make throw their hands in the air and say ' the world's gone mad', the happier they are.

Take this story, for example. Who is it, exactly, that has accused Caroline Wozniacki of racism?

Quote:
On Tumblr, one blogger wrote:
and

Quote:
Another blogger pointed out:

Quote:
While on feministing.com
...so two bloggers and a feminst internet site, then. How is it newsworthy for a major UK newspaper to be reporting on two bloggers and an internet article? Because the Mail is at its usual tricks, manufacturing outrage out of thin air.

This is typical of how they operate. I guarantee that the second that Wozniacki did that stunt, the hacks at The Mail were instructed to find anyone, anyone who said it was racist.

I hate The Mail. [/rant]
