Serena Williams Blames Steubenville Victim For Sexual Assault

The latest entry is a Rolling Stone profile, which comes on the heels of John Jeremiah Sullivan’s Times Magazine cover story last August and a new documentary on Serena Williams‘ tennis life with her big sis. The tennis star was visited in Florida three months ago, and she gave him, well, a few pungent quotes.

Via DeadSpin reports:

Here, for instance, is Serena with an unfortunate “she wore the dress” take on Steubenville:

We watch the news for a while, and the infamous Steubenville rape case flashes on the TV—two high school football players raped a 16-year-old, while other students watched and texted details of the crime. Serena just shakes her head. “Do you think it was fair, what they got? They did something stupid, but I don’t know. I’m not blaming the girl, but if you’re a 16-year-old and you’re drunk like that, your parents should teach you—don’t take drinks from other people. She’s 16, why was she that drunk where she doesn’t remember? It could have been much worse. She’s lucky. Obviously I don’t know, maybe she wasn’t a virgin, but she shouldn’t have put herself in that position, unless they slipped her something, then that’s different.”

Trent Mays, Ma'lik Richmond

A 16 year-old girl raped repeatedly while drunk = “lucky”

A top-5 tennis player in love with someone Serena dislikes = also “lucky”

One lesson: Don’t be lucky.
