Whoopi Goldberg attacks Dominic Thiem

Hollywood star Goldberg Serena Williams jumped aside on "The View", a talk show on US broadcaster ABC. She criticized Dominic Thiem because of the scandal surrounding a press conference: "Listen, man, nobody knows who YOU ​​are." With video.

New York. The story about the collision of the media appointments of Serena Williams and Dominic Thiem at the French Open is still an issue in the USA. However, the opinions go in divided directions, and sometimes it gets ridiculous. In the US talk show "The View", Hollywood star and co-host Whoopi Goldberg Serena jumped to the side and attacked Thiem: "Listen up, man, nobody knows who you are."

Thiem had accused Serena Williams of having a "bad personality" for not having waited until his press conference was over. The ÖTV star had to cancel his - and angrily pulled away. He blamed the organizers, but partly also the US superstar. "You would never do that to Federer or Nadal," he complained. It is also debatable how big the outcry would have been in the completely opposite scenario.

"Don't be a fool!"

In any case, the Lower Austrian didn't need more. The women's round in America's longest-running talk show alongside Oprah Winfrey's show, which has been "On Air" since 1997, held flaming appeals for Williams.

Goldberg was in a rage: “You may be big in the tennis world, but it's a big deal that Serena was eliminated so early. People want to know how she is doing. Don't blame them, stop being a fool, ”the actress, known for films like“ The Color Purple ”or“ Sister Act ”, let herself be carried away in a monologue. The fact that a very disappointed fan from Goldberg must have spoken at this moment cannot be ignored in the clip from the ABC station. "She was sad, she didn't want to tell anything about her end at the French Open," rumbled Goldberg. “Don't blame her for it too. Don't be a fool! "

Thiem wasn't the only one targeted by the women's quartet led by Goldberg. The Swiss Roger Federer also got his fat: “Why does he interfere? And why does he stick to Thiem? "
