She continued, “No press, please … you see, her social anxiety makes it intolerable.”
In a now erased tweet, Osaka, 23, reacted with, “Seeing as you’re a journalist I would’ve presumed you would put in the time to research what the preparations are for publications, if you did that you would’ve discovered I shot all of my covers last year. Instead your very first reaction is to get on here and gush negativity, do better Megan.”
Osaka then blocked Kelly, which caused the Fox News host to have a hissy fit on Twitter.
Kelly ranted with, “Poor @naomiosaka obstructed me while taking a shot at me (guess she’s only difficult on the courts). She is apparently arguing that she shot her numerous covers b/4 openly declaring she was too socially anxious to deal w/press. Reality is she just doesn’t like Qs she can’t manage. Confess it.”
