Do not mistreat Qai Qai! Serena Williams’ husband, Alexis Ohanian, is feeling the wrath of social media after handling his daughter’s doll improperly.
The celebrity father participated in a live update with his wife, Serena Williams, and daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian, a few weeks ago. There was a point during the video that Serena introduced Alexis Olympia’s doll, Qai Qai, who Alexis Sr. chose to pick up by the face.
“Wow,” one fan said. “Alexis just picked Qai up by the face.” Alexis Ohanian responded to the criticism by telling the fan, “You know I wasn’t gonna try to pick her up by the leg.”
Those who have kept up with Qai Qai’s journey know that the youngster’s right leg is always broken. Qai even rocks different colored casts to match her outfit at times.
Alexis Ohanian did not get much credit for not touching Qai’s wounded leg. Fans instead dragged the celebrity dad for grabbing the doll by her face.
“Two hands, under the arms, like a civilized human being,” one Qai Qai fan exclaimed. “By the face is better than not being picked up at all, am I right,” another social media follower sarcastically asked. One Qai Qai fan even went so far as to suggest calling Child Protective Services for the matter. Perhaps, Doll Protective Services would be more appropriate.
Qai Qai’s storyline has grown by leaps and bounds ever since the doll got an interview spot with Oprah’s publication. More than 14,000 Instagram fans follow the celebrity doll online and dozens more will fight to ensure that Alexis Olympia’s baby is treated with dignity and the utmost respect.
