Why this Serena Williams magazine cover has caused outrage

Tennis superstar Serena Williams has been caught in the middle of a social media storm after appearing on the front cover of GQ magazine.

Each featured cover star has had an eventful year with 2018 coming to a close, and the publication has appointed each individual with a certain recognition.

Additionally, each cover star is accompanied with a cover story that details their eventful 2018, while flaunting their signature and dapper looks.

GQ copped an angry response on social media after using the word "woman" to describe Serena Williams.

For more details, head on over to GQ.

Actor Gal Gadot was GQ's woman of the year for 2017.

Lorde Accuses Kanye West & Kid Cudi Of Stealing Her Stage Design!
Lorde is clearly referencing Kanye's latest stage set for his Kids See Ghosts tour with Kid Cudi . West tweeted about the performance on Monday, though he didn't reference Lorde's criticisms.

Serena's cover has "man of the year" written on it, with the word man crossed out and replaced with the word woman.

People who were defending the usage of the quotes also tried to reason with the offended ones saying that the cover font was in the handwriting of Virgil Abloh, a designed who uses the quotes as a trademark on all of his designs.

It's not the first time Williams has been the topic of heated public debate this year.

She fired up at the chair umpire during the US Open final with Japan's Naomi Osaka, which divided opinions around the world over whether she was treated unfairly because of her gender. In a teaser, the magazine promised that Williams will discuss "the US Open moment heard around the world, along with her plans for the future, her thoughts on Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court appointment and what it's like to be a black woman in America in 2018".

"I've been called man because I appeared outwardly strong", she wrote in a post addressed to her mother. "I was different to [sister] Venus: She was thin and tall and lovely, and I am strong and muscular - and handsome, but, you know, it was just totally different". "It has been said that that I use drugs (No, I have always had far too much integrity to behave dishonestly in order to gain an advantage). (No, I just work hard and I was born with this badass body and proud of it)".
