A TMZ photog caught up with the comedian at LAX Sunday and asked if Serena was justified in her outburst against an umpire overseeing her and Naomi Osaka’s match Saturday at the US Open finals — after the guy took a point away from her, and then a whole game.
She called him a thief at the time and later noted that male players have spewed harsher words and are hardly reprimanded as severely as she was.
D.L. cited historic outbursts from tennis champs Andre Agassi and John McEnroe … who once called an umpire a “jerk” and demanded he be replaced mid-game.
D.L. also pointed to Martha Stewart, who allegedly illegally pocketed around $40,000 and was sentenced to 5 months in prison in 2004. He believes a high-profile man caught up in a similar case probably wouldn’t have seen jail time.
Do you agree?
