Tennis star Shelby Rogers speaks publicly about social media harassment after losing the US Open

Rogers made comments about receiving death threats following her loss in the US Open

Over the weekend, American tennis star Shelby Rogers said she would receive “nine million death threats” on social media after losing to Britain’s Emma Radukano in straight sets. Rogers even admitted that he wanted “social media to not exist.”

“Obviously we appreciate the spotlight in those moments, on the other hand you will get death threats today and me,” Rogers told reporters after his loss. “It’s very polarizing, much faster than one another .”

During Tuesday’s episode of “Nothing with David Samson,” David Samson discusses what online abuse can do to people, including players, and why it should be stopped.

“We can’t sit back and laugh or read or stress with people that are bullied,” Samson said. “When your sports hero loses a game, it’s up to you to market or send a message saying ‘you sucked today.’ No, I even have never met an upscale one that isn’t impressed by these statements.

“I’ve never met an athlete who actually ignores and rejects Bose. They hear him. We see him quite humans. My message to Shelby Rogers and Sloane Stephens is that I you’ve got heard and that i apologize to you. I even have won. Don’t stand and watch this happen. once I see something like this happening, i will be able to do something by stopping or reporting these thugs. “
