Serena Williams, the number one tennis ace in the world, is not accustomed to being denied something she wants. So it came to quite a shock to her when she was slapped down for trying to take a photo. Serena was watching Tiger Woods line up his shot at a PGA tournament in Florida when she raised her pink cellphone to snap a pic. But the tennis phenom apparently had no idea that taking pics of the golf champ is strictly forbidden. I can only imagine that this is posted everywhere -- and probably announced too -- but, hey, It's me, Serena! Lemme do what I want! So she excitedly held up her camera to snap a shot when ... doh! She got sooooo busted. And it's really funny.
As Serena holds up her pink cam to take the shot, the TV camera zooms in on her. And then a security guard quickly comes over, places his hand right in front of her camera and quickly lowers her hand.
The look on Serena's face is priceless. She hangs her mouth open FOREVER. I'm surprised a bird didn't fly into it. Then the announcers begin poking fun of her.
"Serena, you may be number one in the world of tennis, but no special privileges out here," says one. "She can't believe it!"
Another pipes in with "She's flabbergasted." Then he says, "I think Tiger might have allowed Serena to snap that picture."
Serena then tweeted:
OK at this golf tournament. Just saw @tigerwoods ... Apparently u can't take pics. This security for mad and yelled at me.
Yelled at, really?! I didn't see her get yelled at by anyone. Is Serena so spoiled that when the guard might have said something like, "No pictures," she interpreted that as being yelled at? Well, boo hoo.
Anyway, it's nice to see there are still events in the world where pictures are forbidden. I'm so tired of people watching their cameras instead of what's actually happening in front of them.
Have you ever taken a picture where you're not supposed to?
