Whoopi Goldberg Defends Serena Williams After Negative Comments

Whoopi Goldberg came to the defense of Serena Williams after tennis player Dominic Thiem said that Serena has a "bad personality." According to Business Insider, Thiem's words came after he was asked to leave a recent French Open press conference, to make way for Williams.

Business Insider explains "something she allegedly said was 'rude' but did not stop from happening.

Goldberg called Thiem a "bonehead" on "The View," explaining "She wanted to get her press conference over as soon as possible and, y'know … because she did not win.

People want to know what's happening, how she doing..."
