Naomi Osaka Calls Out Megyn Kelly Over Criticism of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue

Naomi Osaka versus Megyn Kelly is the celebrity feud no one saw coming. Tennis star Naomi Osaka has been in the news the last month or so about her mental health struggles. She’s been heavily criticized for her recent decision to not hold media interviews. This was the reason she pulled out of Wimbledon.

Now her haters have another reason to try and bring her down.

Naomi Osaka cover for Sports Illustrated is under fire.

“Since saying she’s too introverted to talk to the media after tennis matches, Naomi Osaka has launched a reality show, a Barbie, and now is on the cover of the SI swimsuit issue,” Travis tweeted.

“Let’s not forget the cover of (& interview in) Vogue Japan and Time Mag!” Kelly added.

Naomi responded but deleted the tweet:

“Seeing as you’re a journalist I would’ve assumed you would take the time to research what the lead times are for magazines, if you did that you would’ve found out I shot all of my covers last year,” Osaka said. “Instead your first reaction is to hop on here and spew negativity, do better Megan.”


Megyn then pointed out she got blocked by Osaka:

She also blocked perpetual troll Piers Morgan:

People like Piers and Megyn Kelly are always out for blood.

Naomi needs to stay off social media.
