Kelly retweeted a message from Fox Sports Radio host Clay Travis, which said “Ever since she said she was too introverted to talk to the media after tennis matches, Naomi Osaka started a reality show, and barbie, and now makes the cover of the SI swimsuit number.

She added: “Let’s not forget the cover of (& interview in) Vogue Japan and Time mag!”

Osaka has previously said that she was going through “huge waves of anxiety before I spoke to the world’s media.”

In a post deleted since, Osaka retweeted Kelly and wrote: “Being a journalist I would have assumed that you would take the time to research what the deadlines are for magazines, if you had done that you would have found I turned all of my covers last year.

She added, “Do better Megan [sic]. «

In response, Kelly tweeted, “Poor @naomiosaka blocked me while shooting me (I guess she’s only tough on the courts). She apparently maintains that she turned her many b / 4 covers, publicly claiming that she was too socially anxious to deal with the press. The truth is, she just doesn’t like Qs that she can’t control. Admit it. “

MJ Day, editor-in-chief of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue discussed Kelly’s comments, confirming in an interview with the “People Every Day” podcast that the cover was actually shot in December 2020.

“It’s so intimidating and it’s so unnecessary, and this woman hasn’t done anything wrong,” Day said. “I’m like, ‘You know what, you’re journalists. How about doing your job and checking the facts instead of jumping on this woman for attention? ‘ “

Day added, “It broke my heart to see someone who truly lives their life for the good of others while trying to pursue their own passion, which is tennis and fashion. Let her live. Let her make decisions for herself that protect her own well-being. It doesn’t cost anyone anything.
