Naomi Osaka is one of the biggest stars in the world but she seems to be prone to getting some creepy messages on Instagram
Japanese star Naomi Osaka shared some creepy and lewd Instagram messages which were sent to her by a fan.
The 22-year-old failed to defend her Australian Open title as she lost to Coco Gauff, but it was an emotional event for many stars in the competition.
The tragic passing of Kobe Bryant saw most of the stars post tributes to the basketball legend, and Osaka did the same.
She shared several messages on her social media accounts, however, the two-time Grand Slam champion is also the target of some rather disgusting and creepy messages too.
Osaka shared one such fan who first wanted her to call her, and things then took a crazy turn a few months later.

Fans get a chance to directly talk to their fans but this also opens up the chances of receiving hateful or lewd messages.
Osaka has done well in dealing with such messages and several fans supported the two-time Grand Slam champion too.
