Alexis Ohanian is currently being subjected to weight gain speculations after followers noticed that he looked a little bloated in the face in his recent Instagram pictures. The Reddit co-founder and Serena Williams' husband has not explained how he happened to put on that weight. In the past, Alexis Ohanian ripped apart a former tennis player for making comments about his wife's age and weight gain.

Reddit is not the only thing he co-founded, he also co-founded the early-stage venture capital firm Initialized Capital.

He was named to the Forbes '30 Under 30' list as an important figure in the technology industry in 2011 and 2012. In 2013, he was featured as a 'champion of innovation' along with Erik Martin in the 20th Anniversary issue of Wired. Fast Company named him one of the 'Most Creative People in Business' in 2016.
The tech genius has been targeted with speculations of weight gain after followers noticed he looked a bit puffier than usual in his Instagram pictures.
Alexis Ohanian's Weight Gain: Serena Williams' Husband Looks a Little Puffy!
Alexis Ohanian (@alexisohanian) has lately been the subject of weight gain speculations. If you were not aware of it and are wondering how he came to be discussed for his weight because you don't think he has gained weight, then you might want to take a look at his Instagram page. Do the pictures show that he has gained weight? Well, kind of, which is to say he has not had a massive transformation or anything like that because he put on a few but he sure looks puffy in the face.
Now, just a puffy face is not a really significant change in weight but because it's noticeable, it's enough for fans to start wondering about Alexis Ohanian's weight gain. But there's really nothing to wonder about here now, is there? He just looks a little more bloated in the face than how he looks normally. That hardly qualifies for weight gain but people have been going on about that.
I really don't imagine Alexis Ohanian is going to be too thrilled about his followers making such a big deal about his weight gain out of virtually nothing and just a little swollen face. I mean, who does not have one of those days sometimes? And for those still thinking about it, there's not an 'acknowledgment' coming sooner or later followed by explanations of how he had that weight gain that has made people so curious.
Alexis Ohanian does not have a history of dealing with comments of weight gain calmly. The way he responded when his wife and tennis legend, Serena Williams was criticized for putting on weight shows that. To be fair, whenever people made comments about his wife's weight, there was also the element of sexism and racism, and ageism involved which would infuriate any decent person.
Remember the time when former Romanian tennis player Ion Tiriac criticized Serena Williams for her weight and her playing? Tiriac did not hold back on his thoughts and really said in an interview for a Romanian television channel, "At this age and the weight she is now, she does not move as easily as she did 15 years ago. Serena was a sensational player. If she had a little decency, she would retire. From all points of view."
He might have just gotten away with the unjustifiable digs he took at Williams' age and weight gain if the interview had not been translated to English by Ubitennis and posted on Twitter by a tennis reporter. Tiriac had it coming when Alexis Ohanian ripped him apart and pointed out how he had never won a Grand Slam tournament. He tweeted,
Had to Google it... turns out my 3-year-old has more Grand Slam victories than this 🤡 🤡
And his then three-year-old technically can be said to have at least one Grand Slam, the 2017 Australian Open, the one Serena won when she was pregnant with her. The perfect response to such comments from who is truly a racist/sexist clown.
The kind of response that his followers who have been waiting to hear anything from Alexis Ohanian about his weight gain speculations will never be getting. These ongoing speculations might not elicit such a response because they don't mean any of it with negative intent but it's just so insignificant and making mountain out of a molehill.
