Last week, professional tennis player Naomi Osaka made a statement on Twitter that she would not be doing any interviews with the media after her matches at the French Open.

She cited harassment by the press and wanting to protect her mental health. In subsequent statements, Osaka made it clear that the media is making it difficult to manage her depression and are unnecessarily asking questions that are triggering for her and are impacting her mental health.

She set a boundary, and others seem to have an opinion about it. One of those opinions is from Billie Jean King — another white woman commenting where she should not.
