It's getting to be repetitive. And leaving a bad-taste. 

Last year, Danish tennis star Caroline Wozniacki danced to a Rihanna song, after stuffing her clothes with towels, ostensibly to mock Serena Williams' shape and size:

Last month, Andy Roddick and Novak Djokovic had done similar, separate stunts with stuffed  towels to mock the 2012 WTA Player of the Year:

If it was a joke, it is beginning to wear thin now, as Caroline Wozniacki was back again to repeat the stuffed towels routine in an exhibition match against Maria Sharapova this weekend:

The spectators included an amused Roger Federer.

While Yahoo Sports found the prank, "hilarious," and noted: "The likeness to Serena, you'll surely agree, is uncanny," not everyone thinks it is just a "jest" that should be left alone at that, others point out that making fun of the bodies of black women smacks of nothing else but racism, or at least bad taste.

Tell us what you think: harmless fun, in bad taste or racist?

 If a black man says he has a bigger weiner, it is not racist. If a non black says that blacks have small brains, it is racist. Serena has a nice ass but alas she is Jehova's Witness.

Do not try to put a racist spin on some funny "stuff". What has serena'c colour got to do with her Size? The fact that she is filled with excessive external testosterone gives her such shape and size! If other women do the same, they will look like Serena, irrespective of colour..
