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

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.

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!

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?

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

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

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...

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

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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

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.

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

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

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!

Bria Penn : Amber is Q U E E N

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

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

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

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

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.

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

W.S. Fury : Feeling sorry for the 504 racist schmucks who thumbed down this video. What sad, miserable people they must be.

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

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.

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

aeromeba : I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Amber!!! And I TOTALLY agree about Serena.


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

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

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?

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.

Raest Thetyrant : That Serena segment was cringeworthy

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?

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.

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.

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?!?

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.

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!!!!!!!

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.

Bee Whistler : I can't breathe... she gave words to the feeling of blank, speechless confusion. That was beautiful. That was "was that what you meant to do?" expanded and lit with neon lights.

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.

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.

Jus gie : Who are they and why are they that? Who do you think he is? When you look at him what do you see? Something good??😂😂😂😂😂

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!

Ivette Parra : “I’d be too beautiful and too fast!”
