Serena Williams Reacts To Husband Alexis Ohanian Stepping Down From Reddit Board

Serena Williams is one proud wife.

The 38-year-old tennis great shared her reaction to husband Alexis Ohanian stepping down from the Reddit board this afternoon.

If you missed it, Alexis announced his decision to step down from the board earlier in the day, saying, that “I have resigned as a member of the reddit board, I have urged them to fill my seat with a black candidate, and I will use future gains on my Reddit stock to serve the black community, chiefly to curb racial hate, and I’m starting with a pledge of $1M to Colin Kaepernick’s Know Your Rights Camp.”

Alexis expressed how his decision is based on what his and Serena’s daughter, Olympia would ask what he did to fight racial injustice.

Serena took to Twitter later, saying that Olympia would be proud of her dad.

“Having diverse views on any boards is important. So proud of you Alexis,” Serena wrote. “I know Olympia will be too.”
