Caroline Wozniacki was in Sao Paolo just recently, facing Maria Sharapova on the tennis court. She did not emerge a winner but she’s probably finding some consolation in knowing that she’s the latest viral star.

Check out the video above to see how that came to be.

Sometime during the game, Caroline thought it would be funny to imitate Serena Williams – not in technique but in body shape.

In other words, she took two towels and stuffed one in her bra and one under her skirt in the back, to give her a curvier figure.

She seemed to be enjoying her own joke, but many people online really don’t see the humor in it. In fact, they actually think it’s a possibly racist jab at Serena and, as such, a very offensive thing to do.

Check out the video above and let me know in the comments section below what you make of it: is Caroline being a racist for mocking Serena like this or is this just harmless fun?
