Women everywhere have been putting up with douche guys telling them to “smile” since the dawn of time.

After a long hard day kicking butt at the US Open where tennis star Serena Williams had a victory against her sister Venus, some reporter had the gall to ask her why she wasn’t smiling.

That awesome response again:

“To be perfectly honest with you, I don't want to be here. I just want to be in bed right now and I have to wake up early to practice. And I don't want to answer any of these questions. You guys keep asking me the same questions... You're not making it super enjoyable. Just being honest." 


This response is right up there with the ‘Broad City’ answer to the problem.
