Fairfax Roasts Rival News In Witty Spoof Of The Serena Williams Controversy

Australian artist's cartoon of Serena Williams cartoon swiftly condemned as racist
In the cartoon the umpire is seen saying to Osaka "can't you just let her win?". The umpire was shown telling a blond, slender woman? meant to be Naomi Osaka, who is actually Japanese and Haitian?
Despite the outrage, the paper reprinted the cartoon alongside unflattering caricatures of US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, attempting to portray the controversy as an effort to curtail free speech.
Damon Johnston, the Herald Sun editor, said the cartoon "rightly mocks poor behaviour by a tennis legend" and that "Mr Knight has the full support of everyone [at the paper]". "The world has just gone insane", Knight said in a reply to the criticism published in Tuesday's Sun.
Popular author JK Rowling said on Twitter, "Well done on reducing one of the greatest sportswomen alive to racist and sexist tropes and turning a second great sportswoman into a faceless prop".
While losing Saturday's final to Japan's Naomi Osaka, Williams smashed her racket and called the umpire a "thief" and "liar".
Prior to disabling his account, his tweet of the cartoon had attracted more than 22,000 comments, majority critical.
Pope summons bishops for February abuse prevention summit
A Vatican spokesperson said the meeting of the heads of national Catholic bishops conferences would take place February 21-24. All bishops are required to submit their resignation at the age of 75, but the Pope does not have to accept it.
Some also believed the cartoon "whitewashed" U.S. Open victor Naomi Osaka, who is mixed race, by depicting her as a blond, white woman. "Three days before I had drawn a cartoon about Nick Kyrgios being led off by the ears, like you used to do with your children", he said.
She was found guilty of code violations and fined US$17 000 - raising allegations that there are double standards for male and female players.
In this cartoon, Serena's lips and tongue have been exaggerated while she is seen stomping on her racket in anger.
America's National Association of Black Journalists called the cartoon "repugnant on many levels". "That's what the cartoon was about, her poor behaviour on the court", he said.
Knight was criticised in some quarters for being "racist and sexist".
"Honestly, my mouth dropped open, because I do cover a lot of black news and a lot of it is hard to take, but when I saw this - a blatant caricature of one of the most celebrated athletes in the world - it was offensive, shocking and completely uncalled for", she said.
Stefanovic added he "hoped that she's okay with it" and that Williams would travel to Melbourne for the Australian Open in early 2019.
Some Twitter users, however, contested that the image was not racist.
