maryinsanfrancisco : One of the best, maybe even THE best Amber Says What ever!

PhoebeFay RuthLouise : Amber is a national treasure! What a treat it was to go from “Amber says what” to “Amber says why”! BRILLIANT!!! Amber deserves an Emmy for this!

Dani Long : Asking her to shut up and take it is asking her to be complicit her own abuse and WE DON'T DO THAT ANYMORE. I've been practicing enunciating that phrase for the last twenty minutes. It's powerful.

Joe Gaylord : I need a "Goddamn right whoop!" gif.

Catherine Joy Stockley : Amber needs her own show ... and also to NEVER leave Seth’s show ...

Ron Dear : At “Who are they and why are they that?” I laughed soda so hard out of my mouth it startled me. I could not have imagine how both ridiculous and very poignant that combination of words could be and how I would have reacted to them. Who are the people that wrote words like that and did they know they would do what those words did and how?

Squirrel Gray : I GOT THE IDEA!!! Hour long show with Amber, she spends 10 minutes on what, why, where, when, who once a week like John Oliver's show. I don't need any monies for this just hit that thumbs up so she knows to make the show.

Annie Ranai : I'm creating fake accounts just to like this more because one like isn't enough...

Robbie Backpacking : I know right, John McEnroe's career is entirely based around tantrums.

oscargordon : "Serena's French Open catsuit went too far and I'm like Quoi?" Also, her delivery of the Amber says why? was brilliant and flawless. Give this woman an Emmy for both writing and acting.

handyhippie65 : as long as segal is going to russia, who cares why. let's just be happy for the what. plus, if i had serena's body, it would be nekkid all the time too, and i'd be happy as a clam.

Kai Vickers : Goddamn right woo! I know nothing about tennis, I actually don’t like the sport at all and I was furious over all of it. Men can go shirtless but a woman FIXING HER SHIRT gets penalized.

Josh Wilson : What, why, how, who, when, I want ALL the wh words! And Do! and ALL the questions! More Amber!

Johnny4eyes : What?? White tennis players can build a career brand based on temper tantrums and get away with it!? You CANNOT be SERIOUS!!

Sleep System : One of the worst things about the “cat suit” thing was that the “cat suit” had a function: it was SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED TO PREVENT SERENA FROM HAVING A BLOOD CLOT, WHICH COULD KILL HER. She’s been dealing with blood clots ever since her daughter was born, and they nearly killed her on two separate occasions! By banning her “cat suit”, they could actually kill her by preventing her from wearing clothing that is necessary to keep her safe, all because they want to police her appearance!

Taofiqiya Adelakun : Amber you should have congratulated Naomi Osaka as well she played a great game

somebodysonata : Amber Says Why is my new favorite. By the time she got to "Are you sure you want what this will do did?" I was crying laughing. I might have to start saying that when my husband is about to make a bad decision.

Erica Gamet : I love Amber so much! She really does need her own show.

Eleanor Svenson : How is this the funniest thing I’ve ever seen?!!!!!!!

Kerrie Gipe : I must have been very good this week to get 7 minute Amber Says What.

Ross Radtke : "...and we don't do that anymore!" Hell yeah Amber, we don't need time to adjust, that's just how its going to be... "ready to hear that?" nah, if you wait for everyone to be ready, you'll always be waiting.

C. Hopper : Keep asking "What?", and I'm right there with you, asking "Why?". So much "WHY?"

Chiungalla79 : The problem is: Serena was wrong. 1.) Her coach coached, that's a rules violation, no matter if she saw it. 2.) Smashing your racket is a code violation. So when Serena started her tantrum she was in the wrong. She made some serious accusations against an umpire that did nothing wrong up to this point. He just did his job. This can't be denied. Especially after the coach admitted that he coached her during the game. This had nothing to do with racism or sexism. She broke the rules and she gained the well-deserved penalty for this. Is the coaching rule stupid? Maybe. I understand the point that tennis is a very mental and strategic game and that you want the players to fight this part of the game out on their own. But this is not the point. At the point when this happened, the rule was very clear and her coach broke it. And yes, coaching is widely practiced across the tennis world. And not all of them are penalized. But then again that's true for nearly all the rules in the game. Some violations are more obvious. Sometimes the umpire fails to look in the right direction at the same time. But this time he did, and what he saw was so obvious that he could not ignore it. It was a gamble on Serena's teams part. The benefits of coaching vs. the risk to get caught. And yes, maybe the umpire could have just ignored Serena's tantrum about sexism, thievery, and lies. But this is kind of a double standard. The umpire needs to be this stoic person who does go along while he is been repeatedly verbally abused. Which he earned just by being a good umpire up to this point. While Serena is allowed to throw her tantrum at him because she believed that she was in the right (although she wasn't). The one who really stood up against abuse here was Carlos Ramos. By giving a code violation for a completely unacceptable behavior on Serena's part. And in nearly every other sport practiced on the planet, if you behave anything remotely like Serena did that day, you are out. And probably suspended for a time. That's not practiced in tennis on a regular basis, or at least not on high profile game. Why? Because people came to see this match and paid good money to do so.

Bria Penn : Amber is Q U E E N

Tyler Kochman : I am glad I am not the only person who has mistakenly thought of Faith Evans when I have heard people mention Faith Hill

61lastchild : The Putin/Segall bit...epic...Carlinesque word play...

Ramses Stafford : Hell Yea, Amber going in. Long live Serena the GOAT.

drmorq : yes, she needs her own show... something as good as full frontal with samantha bee... and not some crap shoot on true tv... when I saw it was another Amber segment.. I didnt even pause.. I jumped on it. Seth... you are consistent and really really good.. but part of that is that Amber is pretty great... smart as a whip... witty and quick... funny and so cute... You have a great staff making you a damned good show... and you are a great host.

VianneyCreates : If I had Serena's body, you couldn't get no clothes on me! LOL!!

Nurlinda F Sihotang : i said : "quoi!?" 😂😂

peter g : love amber. wrong about serena though. first of all, not even serena said anything about racism. she claimed sexism, but NOT racism. second, in the words of martina: just because the guys might be able to get away with it doesn’t mean it’s acceptable. bottom line: serena was first penalized for coaching, which her coach admitted. she was then penalized for smashing her racket, which she did. she was thirdly penalized for abusing the umpire, which she also did. no sexism. is serena a great athlete? undeniably. does being a great athlete automatically make you a good person? nah.

Gaby : I love Amber but I can't agree with her on the Serena subject. Serena may have felt like it was racism or an equality issue or both but if you like tennis you've watched this kind of thing with men too. I can be wrong of course but from what I've read and seen this issue was blown out of proportion on both sides.

Raest Thetyrant : That Serena segment was cringeworthy

QBig1234 : Nobody would ever remember Naomi Osaka won the US Open final making her the first japanese player to do so but Serena is somehow an idol of woman empowerment for blaming her loss on the referee. What?

Asti Upiastirin : I see some still drinking serena kool aid. I am guessing they forgot she verbally threathened a lineswoman of shoving the ball in her f ing throat and got disqualified. I guess she felt because she is a woman and black she can make a case for her behaviour and and her choice of action and screamed racism and discrimination.

erixxon74 : in any sport it is part of the game to factor the umpire/referee into the equation. even if the first call could be seen as unnecessary, what followed was her own fault. i get it , she was frustrated. that doesn’t excuse anything. in soccer when i have the yellow card already, i play accordingly, in basketball when i have 5 fouls i play accordingly.i kinda give her credit for trying to calm down the crowd when she realized she had destroyed naomis big day. but she lost the credit again when she made herself the martyr in the press conference. but it fits perfectly into today’s culture of “everything is always somebody else’s fault” i wish she had displayed some humility and moved on. but then again today’s america is not about humility i guess. and maybe you probably have to be an egomaniac to a certain extent if you wanna be the most dominant tennis player in the world. still a legend, not a role model anymore, not to me at least.

When in doubt, be a unicorn : Serena’s team admitted coaching from the sideline- the thing that she was docked a point for and the reason she got mad 🤷🏻‍♀️ She acted poorly on court and took the focus away from the victor.

Peter Matthews : I think we just found Serena William's anger translator. If Obama got to have one maybe other can benefit from the same opportunity?

J C : Okay the whole Serena woman thing was a little blown out of proportion

moiraine_damodred : John McEnroe was thrown out of an entire tournament for his behavior.

Dorian sapiens : Thanks to the situation people were having about Serena Williams, I learned a new word: _Misogynoir._ It's the extra dose of discrimination people get for being a woman while black.

Vidya Sonavane : Sorry, amber don't agree with u about describing class act by Serena. One can disguise one's behavior with catchy phrases, but can't hide the facts. U agree that u can say if she did something wrong, even if she is black, or big, or a champion.

New Message : Better to be caught working at Trader Joe;s than acting with Bill Cosby.

Naryoril : Serena breaking 3 different rules of tennis and getting the penalty that is written in the rules is the referee's fault? To say it in amber's words: WHAT?!? Throwing an unwarranted temper tantrum (she was being coached, which was admitted by her coach later on, and she did break a racket, both things combined cost you a point by the rules) and insulting the referee in its course is class? WHAT?!? Completely destroying what should have been the best and happiest day in her opponent's sports career and making her cry is class? WHAT?!? Calling a referee who is known for being strict to everyone (yes, including white men) a sexist is class? WHAT?!?

Cal : Williams had a tantrum. She threw her racket and when the umpire gave her a point (essentially a warning) she screamed abuse at him repeatedly, calling him sexist in front of a crowd and international TV audience.

Vidya Sonavane : How you will like a tennis ball down your throat from the classy Serena? Why u have to justify her tantrums? U didn't have trouble pointing out the pastor. Just because she is black? She is an athelete, should behave professionally, but it is too much to ask from her, now she is a champion and apparently get more money to add than playing. So it's ok to say she is fighting for women's rights, when she rips other females for her own selfish gains. Sorry amber, i don't like blind adulations! U r wrong!

A.D. Peterson : Feeling sorry for the 504 racist schmucks who thumbed down this video. What sad, miserable people they must be.

ApolosXV : Yesssssss, wow "Amber says Why" just brought my life to another level of happiness, thank you so much Amber and Late Night w/ Seth Meyers!!!!!!!

Daniel Webster : Dan says "WHY?" do we not see more of her... like everywhere?

darlene harris : I LOVE AMBER .... SHE IS AMAZING .... THIS IS THE BEST AMBER SAYS WHAT E.V.E.R.
