Tennis star Naomi Osaka has been pretty vocal recently after a series of comments on social media chastising her for wearing less clothing.

According to Yahoo News, the 22-year-old tennis star went on the defense after posting several photos of herself soaking up the summer sun in a bikini.

Like any 20-something, Osaka frequently shares photos and videos from her life off the court, including snaps from her downtime poolside.

Earlier this month, Osaka began receiving messages criticizing her body and claiming the athlete was no longer a suitable role model for young girls.

“Is that pregnancy or quarantine stomach?” one person commented on Osaka’s July 19 photo, in which she posed poolside in a silver mini-dress.

In a separate post, Naomi Osaka showed off a pair of Nike sneakers while wearing blue swimsuit bottoms and a yellow sweatshirt.

The post, which Osaka captioned “Shoe game proper” triggered a backlash from followers for being “improper.”

“I don’t get why you would post half-naked pics of yourself,” one person wrote. “Have some class… you don’t need to do this.”

“I just wanna say it’s creeping me out how many people are commenting at me to maintain my ‘innocent image’ and ‘don’t try to be someone you’re not.’

” Osaka wrote. “You don’t know me, I’m 22, I wear swimsuits to the pool. Why do you feel like you can comment on what I can wear?”

The tweet prompted thousands of replies from fans who encouraged Osaka to be herself and disregard her trolls.
