Former Fox News broadcaster Megyn Kelly bashed tennis star Naomi Osaka over her appearance on the cover of Sports Illustrated's swimsuit issue, and she was roundly attacked by other social media users.

The 23-year-old Osaka withdrew from the French Open and skipped Wimbledon, saying that her mental health struggles made post-game media conferences difficult, and Kelly was criticized for suggesting the athlete was hypocritical for taking part in the photo shoot.
