Its sad when someone's in their 20s has to tell grown woman how to conduct herself.

A woman derive joy tearing another woman down old enough to her daughter.
As a person suffering from massive social anxiety disorder most of my life, I think I can understand that Naomi Osaka can handle the media only in a NON-HOSTILE environment. For instance magazine covers and interviews are by nature reverential and thus will be done in a manner in which Naomi will be made to feel extremely comfortable and may be even special. However press interviews definitely are held in an environment in which she can not control the narrative and can be rather confrontational and might induce extreme anxiety and given she is also an introvert who has to answer the questions in front of 1000's of might only exacerbate her anxiety...

Having said that - to a person on the outside, it will be very hard to explain why Naomi is comfortable doing magazine covers and not press interviews and in that Megyn Kelly has a that she may come across as a bit of a hypocrite to the outside world....

Think Naomi should not do any media and just concentrate on the sport or if she is doing any form of media then do all forms of the media....that will shutup people....This half in half out regiment does not work for anyone....especially if you are in the public eye....

People find it hard to believe that I find acting/dancing easy on stage yet I find being myself and giving a speech as myself on stage extremely hard not realizing my anxiety is induced on stage by being myself where as with acting/dancing you are pretending to be someone else.....

She’s an adult and can do whatever she wants if she wants to give a interview, if she doesn’t, if she wants to talk to magazine if she doesn’t. She doesn’t belong to others but herself much less to the media.

Four years from now, when Megyn is even more irrelevant than she is now, Naomi will STILL be young, beautiful, wealthy, AND kicking ass on the tennis court.❤️❤️❤️

Megyn (Karen) must have so much time on her hands to be going after Naomi or just wants people to remember her since her show was canceled after only 1 season I believe.....shame on you.

What Megyn and a lot of people don't get is that you can be an introvert and still do magazine covers. Robert DeNiro is shy and a total introvert. He's an actor in movies, but he rarely does interviews.
Naomi Osakaa 🍻🥂❤️
Well done Naomi - taking control of her destiny.

Naomi is very smart. She's schooling her in a classy way : go do some research before you open your mouth. Shut the door.
Amen. ! U said it . Depression is just as bad as having any other illnesses

Megan Kelly needs to grow up and find something with some substance. Megan wants to have a relevant story so bad. She’s taking time out to poke at essentially a child. Basically Megan knows this young lady is extremely talented, very smart and really attractive! #meganhating!

When you look that great on the cover of a magazine! I can see how people could be jealous! Great job Naomi!

I watched N Osk’s docu-series on Netflix, and it was very obvious that this young lady is not comfortable being in the lime light. She is very mature for her age, but also very shy.
I do not believe for one min, that she is putting on an act, just so she doesn’t have to go in front of the media. I’m sure she wouldn’t risk losing money because of her ego.

People need to leave her alone, and worry about their own lives that nobody cares about.
Dr. JP MD:
I respect the fact that Naomi Osaka realized she needed to focus on her mental well being and held herself up to the light in a world full of darkness and negativity. Let's approach mental health with the dignity it deserves.

Ronaldo who is a soccer super-star received no negativity when he removed the Coca-Cola (sponsorship) drinks from his press-meeting, yet Naomi is criticized for voicing her feelings towards press meetings? Another example of discrimination against females.

Scrutinising is okay as long as it's done professionally and ethically.
Megyn made her career at Fox from "punching down". Naomi isn't the first athlete having anxiety issues, but she fit into "Megyn's target audience". Imo, Megyn is lucky Naomi don't make NY housecalls.

Megyn (Karen) is a professionall bully. Since her show was canceled, Karen (Megyn) has nothing else to do of course.
This woman (Karen or Megyn) is probably jealous of Naomi's success and since things are not going well for her, she prefers to go after people who are younger than her and thus, she will be able to destroy their self esteem instead of uplifting them. This woman is really pitiful! 🙄🙄🙄🙄
I hope someone will tell her to stop her childish behaviour. 🤪🤪

I agree interviews are quite different from a photo shoot environment but that was not Naomi's response. In some way Kelly is correct.

#CONGRATULATIONSNAOMIOSAKA. Keep doing you maximized! As for the professional hater #MegynKellyKaren, who is just too heartless for words, and probably really perturbed that a Black tennis star knows she has every right to look out for herself, while respectfully rejecting reporters who may have wanted to take shots are her for something, instead of focusing on her unchallenge-able talents! Please get a life beyond hating on someone who doesn't have to talk to anyone if she feels threatened in any way, especially as it relates to her mental health!!
Love Naomi! Leave her alone…
when a young woman 👋 comes back to a grown woman who supposedly should’ve know better than that let’s stand together not degrade her especially when she’s struggling with a lot WOW 😮 I love #Naomi #liveyourbestlife

This is the reason she turns down irrelevant press such as thirsty Megan...blocking you is the best thing ever, you were taking space that you didnt earn.

Hope Megyn (Karen) doesn't throw a fit when she finds out it was Naomi Osaka who lit up the main torch at the 2020 Olympics opening ceremonies earlier today...
In a controlled environment with a photographer is different than on camera LIVE being asked random questions. She knows nothing about introverts.

No! And I'm glad Naomi blocked her. Good for her! She doesn't have to let toxic energy in. Yes she should protect her peace!
Ann Smith

Too much time is spent tearing down others to make oneself look good to score point.I don't regard this as good journalism. As for Naomi she rose above the unwanted press with her response.She is being courageous for bringing to the forefront the plight of ills that are overlooked in general.I look at her declaration as a champion for mental disorders.Continue on your journey you are destined for bigger and better things.Trail blazer for a good cause.More love makes the world we live in a better place.

They just want Naomi out in the open so they can tarnish her innocence and her integrity because they have none a d a child is better than them all. She’s bullying a young woman that could be her daughters age and has never slandered her at all in any way smh 🤦🏾‍♂️

Why is Megyn not getting grief for bullying???
Naomi has the freedom to take a stand when and where she wants. She faced the consequences (fines) for not doing media. Can’t we please be kind?!?!?
Hey Megyn - Guess what? You've made yourself LESS THAN 0. Naomi and ALL young people are a Blessing

Come on, Megyn. Just because she's introverted means she can't venture into other business deals? As a major introvert myself I know what it's like to be heavily scrutinized and judged. It's very hurtful and unkind. If you're an extrovert, just be happy you're an extrovert and try not to walk on those who are introverted. Megyn Kelly can't win grand slams like Naomi Osaka and Naomi Osaka isn't super confident in interviews like Megyn Kelly, so get off her back.

Really Megyn??? Does being a “b..” make you feel like you’re in control?? Why don’t you try having compassion instead of tearing apart somebody you don’t even know. It’s hard not to lose respect for you after these comments but I will try to give you the benefit of the doubt the way you should’ve given Naomi.

4:10... THAT PART!!!. Megan Kelly is so imature and needs the clicks & views! IMO unless you have personally experience depression; has loved or taken care of someone who suffers/suffered from mental illness, don't point your finger and assume you know how the individual feels. "SOME" people who are diagnosed with Mental Health Disorders, can still live a balance life. I bet Megan couldn't walk one day in Naomi's shoes.
Why does megan cares about why naomi doesn't want to do press but doing covers??? Why does matter to megan.. it is naomi's decision...
