WATCH: Social media goes wild after Serena Williams puts a wig on husband Alexis Ohanian

Citizen Reporter

Her hubby has previously been complimented for supporting his wife and being vocal about it.


American Twitter went wild after Serena Williams made a video of herself trying to figure out a way to wash her wigs. In the video, Serena says: “I just don’t know how to clean my wigs and I don’t know how to style them. I just washed my wig and I want to comb it out,” as she uses her husband Alexis Ohanian as a wig-holder.

The video has since gone viral, with most branding Ohanian “husband of the year”, though he had a different explanation to his actions.

Responding to the messages on social media, Ohanian wrote: “LOL I was just on my phone replying to emails while my wife was using my head as a wig-holder. It’s just multi-tasking, folks, not husband-of-the-year material. Thanks for sending it viral tho.”
