“King Richard” Biopic on Richard Williams Blasted for Being ‘Sexist’

*Critics are calling Will Smith’s “King Richard” biopic about Venus and Serena William’s father – sexist. The criticism started over the weekend after a Twitter user questioned why the film is about Richard Williams and not his famous daughter who he coached to tennis stardom.

 

 

“Did they seriously make a film called ‘King Richard’ about the success of Serena and Venus Williams –– but it’s about their dad, Richard?” the Twitter user, Dr. Jessica Taylor, wrote, Complex reports.

 

 

 

 

Taylor added, “I get this has annoyed people but I genuinely didn’t expect a film about two of the most powerful, successful and amazing black female athletes to be named after a man, or center a man. I would have loved this film to be all about them, and not a man. That’s it really.”

Several Twitter users responded by noting that Venus and Serena both serve as executive producers on the film. “King Richard” highlights one father’s relentless drive and unapologetic vision to change the game.

 

 

 

 

Determined to do things his way, Richard Williams made a plan and defied the odds by raising not one, but two of the greatest athletes of all time: Venus and Serena Williams (who executive produced the film alongside their sister Isha Price).

“I think Richard was ahead of his time,” “King Richard” director Reinaldo Marcus Green told The New York Post. “The kinds of things that he was thinking about in protecting his daughters from certain things … He did things that were unorthodox, and I think it rubbed a lot of people the wrong way.”
