Serena Williams Does the Crip Walk?

Forget Usain’s Lightning Bolt. Ron Artest’s “Everybody say Queensbridge!” Brandi Chastain’s ripping off her shirt to reveal her sports bra. Or even NFL touchdown celebrations like Tebowing or the Dirty Bird. Serena Williams crip walk upon winning the Gold was definitely the most unusual victory celebration sports has ever seen.

For those who were offended, we say cut her a little slack. Sports victories, , especially those on the international stage, are definitely a cause for celebration and sometimes emotion can get the best of you. Good thing the Olympics weren’t held in Compton though.
