Serena Williams’s daughter someday might feel as if she has big shoes to fill but currently the 3-year-old seems to be doing it in stride.

Serena Williams and her daughter Alexis Olympia have been taking part in quite a bit of mommy/ daughter girl time.

In a series of  Instagram photos shared over the weekend, the sports athlete showed off Alexis’s tennis court skills. In what has to be the world’s cutest Instagram post, Williams and her daughter wear purple Nike bodysuits while striking poses with their tennis rackets. In the last image of the series, the mother/ daughter duo do a sweet high five.

More photos of the day were shared on Alexis’s official Instagram page which is run by her parents.

In the photo, Serena and Alexis wear their long-sleeve bodysuits with skirts. Serena posted the photo with the caption “Caption this.” Of course, it didn’t take long for Alexis’s photo to receive tons of Instagram love. Dwyane Wade commented on the image saying “If this isn’t the cutest thing I’ve seen” Chloe x Halle awwed over the image as well.

It’s not the first time Alexis has stolen the limelight from her mother.

Earlier this year, Alexis stole more awws when her mother posted a photo of her holding her daughter while she was sleeping. In a post to Instagram, Serena wrote “I am not sure who took this picture but Working and being a mom is not easy. I am often exhausted, stressed, and then I go play a professional tennis match. We keep going. I am so proud and inspired by the women who do it day in and day out. I’m proud to be this baby’s mama @olympiaohanian#nofilter#nomakeup#nohairbursh lol #justme.”

Snapchat Tragically Thought Making Users Smile To Break ‘Chains Of Slavery’ Was A Fun Idea

Snapchat Tragically Thought Making Users Smile To Break ‘Chains Of Slavery’ Was A Fun Idea

@KevOnStage

Companies and brands need Black people.

Case in point: recently, an executive from Snapchat’s parent company was forced to apologize for a disrespectful filter that encouraged users to “break the chains of slavery with a smile.”

Snapchat’s latest filter was set against a Pan-African flag and encouraged users to smile to make chains appear and ultimately break them.

The filter was featured as part of Snapchat’s Juneteenth support effort which rose in popularity amid protests over the death of Georg Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and other Black people across the United States.

Users on Twitter were quick to condemn the filter as “tone-deaf” and being superficial in attempts to address systematic racism. In response to the backlash, former Snapchat employees have tweeted out about the company’s lack of diversity. “This is what happens when you don’t have any black people on the product design team,” one Twitter user wrote.

In response to complaints, Oona King, the vice president of diversity, equity, and inclusion at Snap, slammed assertions that the company launched the filter without consulting Black staffers.

“The mischaracterization on social media — that White executives at a tech company failed, yet again, to include Black perspectives — is completely untrue,” King, a Black woman told employees in a Saturday letter. “What is true is that regardless of our diverse backgrounds, we are all human, and humans make mistakes.”

King asserted that Black employees had been “fully involved” in creating and approving the filter. In response to complaints, Snapchat pulled the filter and apologized.

“This mistake has taught us a valuable lesson, and I am sincerely sorry that it came at the expense of what we meant to be a respectful commemoration of this important day,” King said in the letter published by The Verge. “We feel it is perfectly acceptable as black people to celebrate the end of slavery — as we do with picnics, BBQs, street parties, and other forms of celebration across America — and say ‘Smile! Happy Juneteenth; we’re no longer enslaved! But we’re not yet really free either! However for a White person to tell a Black person: ‘Smile! You’re no longer slaves’ is offensive in the extreme.”

Unlike other Silicon Valley giants, Snap has yet to share a report on the diversity of its workforce. Recently they announced plans to publicly release diversity data, “along with additional context and our plans for meaningful change.”
