Global tennis star Serena Williams has called out The New York Times after they printed a story about her using a picture of her sister Venus Williams

The story detailed how Williams’ venture capital firm has raised over $100 million that will be invested in founders with diverse points of view.

But the picture featured was of Venus – not Serena – as the latter took to Twitter to point out.

“No matter how far we come, we get reminded that it’s not enough,” she wrote. “This is why I raised $111M for @serenaventures.”

“To support the founders who are overlooked by engrained systems woefully aware of their biases. Because even I am overlooked. You can do better, @nytimes.”

The newspaper’s business account replied to the tweet claiming it was “due to an error”.
