Jason Whitlock Believes Serena’s Crip Walk Celebration Was ‘Premeditated’

Fox Sports columnist Jason Whitlock is getting a lot of feedback this morning – both positive and negative – for a column entitled “Serena Deserves the Criticism.”

He’s not buying any of the excuses articulated by Williams and supporters regarding the Olympic gold medalist’s decision to celebrate at Wimbledon on Saturday with a dance popularized by Crip gang members. Whitlock thinks it was her crafty way of getting back at the All England Club:

A couple of years ago, the Queen visited Wimbledon for the first time in 33 years. Serena was the reigning Wimbledon champion. She practiced her curtsy in anticipation of playing in front of the Queen at Centre Court. Wimbledon placed Serena on Court 2 and let one of the fashionable white girls play Centre Court in front of the Queen…

I bet in a private moment Friday night or Saturday morning, Serena told her sister Venus, “I’m going to kick this $*%& ass and Crip Walk all over this crusty-ass place.”

Reader comments are rolling in at foxsports.com faster than a Williams ace down the center line. To his (usual) credit, Whitlock is re-tweeting all sides of netizen reactions:
