Sharing wise words with Caitlin, Serena said, “It’s so important to continue to do what she’s doing. No matter what other people do, if people are negative, it’s because they can’t do what you do, basically. Hopefully she’ll continue to do what she’s doing.”

“I was bullied,” remarked the 42-year-old.

Serena stated, “Things that I had to go through, now people would be cancelled for saying [what they did] back then.”
