Serena Steubenville Quote Stuns

“It could have been much worse.”

A new Rolling Stone profile of Serena Williams reveals the tennis champion’s take on the Steubenville, Ohio, rape case that may have women’s groups up in arms. “I’m not blaming the girl, but if you’re a 16-year-old and you’re drunk like that, your parents should teach you—don’t take drinks from other people,” Williams said.
