Alexis Ohanian is being dissed by Drake in his new Album, which was dropped on November 4, 2022. Titled Her Loss and made in collaboration with 21 Savage, the album features a song called “Middle of the Ocean.” That’s where Drake insults Serena Williams’s husband. Rather than not responding to being dissed, Ohanian tweeted, answering back to being called a “groupie” in the rapper’s song.
Serena Williams’s Husband and His Response
“Sidebar, Serena, your husband a groupie,” raps Drake in his new album. But Alexis Ohanian, the husband of Serena Williams, didn’t let things just be. Instead, he decided to respond and did so in the perfect way.
He pinned a tweet on the same day as the album’s release date. In it, Ohanian shares a photo of himself and his daughter watching Serena Williams play. The tweet states that Ohanian keeps winning because he remains relentless in everything he does — and that includes being the best “groupie” for his daughter and wife.
The Response to Alexis Ohanian’s Tweet
Twitter users who commented on Ohanian’s tweet call it a perfect response. Indeed, the post has over 19,000 retweets and more than 82,000 likes. Other comments state that Drake is just jealous of the internet entrepreneur’s beautiful and loving family.
Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian married in 2017. Ever since then, they regularly express their love and affection for each other in the press. Back in 2019, Williams stated that her husband doesn’t dim her light, nor does he aim to do so. Instead, he motivates her to pursue further achievements. “Without him,” the star comments, ”my light would actually be dimmer.”
Back in 2015, there was a rumor that Drake and Serena Williams were having a fling. It’s not clear whether this or something else prompted “her loss.” Insulting men for loving and supporting their partners isn’t the most original of ideas. Ohanian agrees.
Paralympian Swimmer Becca Meyers Quits After Denied to Bring PCA in Tokyo 2020
Rebecca Meyers, the six-time Paralympic medalist swimmer has withdrawn her candidature from Tokyo 2020 over a dispute with authority. The three golds winning champion from the 2016 Rio games has withdrawn her name from the team USA competing for this summer Olympic after United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee (USOPC) didn’t allow her to take personal care assistant (PCA) in Tokyo with her.
The 26 years old deaf and blind swimmer was expected to compete in the ongoing Tokyo Olympics for up to four medals. But Meyer informed the team USA that she was quitting, after being instructed that she could not bring her mother Maria Meyers, who is also her PCA, to help her navigate through the Olympic facilities in Tokyo. According to her statement in the Washington Post, she made this difficult decision to effect immediate change against long-going discriminatory practices within the Olympics process.
The Cause Behind
Last June, USOPC informed Mark Meyers, Becca’s father, that the Japanese Government and the Tokyo 2020 organizers have prohibited her to bring a PCA to Tokyo, due to newly set Covid-19 regulations, which are under effect by strictly limiting travel allowances in the country as an Olympic Delegate. The committee also noted that one authorized PCA will be accompanying the 34-member USA Paralympic Swimming Team along with six team coaches to assist the competitors in their personal needs. But, sources from Meyers’s side have blamed USOPC for the entire debacle, believing that the committee simply did not choose to allocate Maria Meyers one of its limited ‘essential personnel slots’.
Meyer’s Rare Condition
Meyers was deaf at birth, due to ‘Usher Syndrome’, a rare genetic disorder, which has also eroded her eyesight gradually. She is not completely blind, but according to the Washington Post report, her eyesight has recently been downgraded to the middle-class Paralympic classification of S12 from the least-impaired classification of S13. Paralympians with S11 designation are categorized as completely blind or almost close to being one. Meyers was the only swimmer among the 34 members on Team USA, who is both blind and deaf.
