As reported in Yahoo News, Megyn Kelly “cast doubt on the tennis professional's mental health struggles. In a now-deleted tweet, Osaka told Kelly to "do better" and stop spreading "negativity."
"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.
Kelly replied, noting the 23-year-old's recent Vogue Japan and Time magazine covers.
Osaka responded, "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. Instead your first reaction is to hop on here and spew negativity, do better Megan."
The online exchange perfectly highlights why Naomi Osaka took a mental health break, in part, due to the fact that too many journalists speak for attention instead of doing their job to defend, protect, and champion truth.
Yes, Megan Kelly, do better!
