Serena Williams’ Daughter’s Doll Has More Followers Than You

You’ve been posting photos of beautifully edited and expertly plated food on Instagram every day going on 4 years now. It must have crushed you when this week you find out an egg has more followers than you. Not only that, but the only photo it’s posted has almost 47 million likes. Your soul must have then left your body when 3 days later you now find out a doll has more followers than you. If you were on the fence about slitting your wrists before, then you might as well do it now.

The doll, Qai Qai, is actually owned by the daughter of Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian, the founder of Reddit and owner of the account. It’s not just any doll, however, it’s a black doll. If you were a white supremacist running a competing IG account for an Aryan doll, you’d be pissed. Here she is watching Serena Williams play.

Serena says she bought the doll for her daughter Olympia Ohanian because she wanted her first doll to be black. Serena “didn’t have many opportunities to have black dolls.” Adding, “And I was just thinking, like, I want her first doll to be black. And, you know, her heritage, obviously she’s mixed, she’s Caucasian and black, but I feel like that was her first doll and I said her second doll would be Caucasian. So I definitely want to always teach her love and teach her just basic human … humans should always have love for each other, no matter what color they are.”

To be honest, I don’t think Olympia cares. Her dad seems to be playing with it more than she is. I wouldn’t be surprised if Olympia walked in on him brushing its hair and whispering sweet nothings into its plastic ear.
