Congratulations to Serena Williams for being honoured with the Sport's Illustrated 2015's Sportsperson of the Year.
While most people are congratulating her for being the first woman to win the title since 1983, others aren't so kind.
Some fans of horse racing were quite upset over the fact that three time winner American Pharoah was snubbed for the title.
Can we talk about the fact that Pharoah is a horse.
“Once again, Thoroughbred horse racing has been denied by mainstream sports media,” screamed a byline-less post at horseracingnation.com.
“I am disappointed to announce Triple Crown and Grand Slam Champion American Pharoah has not been named Sports Illustrated’s Sportsman of the Year Award for 2015. Instead the award went to tennis star, Serena Williams. Despite an overwhelming victory in the fan vote by American Pharoah, maybe this sad announcement should come as no real surprise. […] Sports Illustrated, your agenda is showing.”
Okay, you horse people need to calm down. He's a horse. He can't even buy a Sports illustrated Magazine, let alone, read one.
He probably doesn't realize how big of a distinction that is.
