Tennis star Maria Sharapova has officially fallen from grace after admitting to failing a drug test at the Australian Open, earlier this year.

On Monday, Sharapova addressed the matter during a live press conference in Los Angeles. According to the former Wimbledon champion, the substance she’s been taking throughout her career is known as Mildronate or Meldonium.

Although Meldonium is typically used as a heart medication, there is also significant evidence that shows it enhances performance in athletes. The substance only appeared on the World Anti-Doping Agency’s banned list this year.

“I have to take full responsibility for it,” Sharapova said during the press conference. “It’s my body, and I’m responsible for what I put into it.”

Yet, in spite of a career riddled with drug use Sharapova has been unable to defeat Serena Williams. Interesting. *Sips Tea*

And, we know we’re not the only ones who share the same sentiment. Take a look at some of the funniest (and brutally honest) reactions from Black Twitter below:
