"Instead your first reaction is to hop on here and spew negativity, do better Megan."Day confirmed in Tuesday's podcast episode that the photo shoot occurred in December, months before Osaka went public about her struggles with mental health.

The tennis champion appeared to block Kelly on Twitter after responding to her.Osaka"blocked me while taking a shot at me,”. “She is apparently arguing that she shot her many covers b/4 publicly claiming she was too socially anxious to deal w/press. Truth is she just doesn’t like Qs she can’t control. Admit it.” headtopics.com

Day added in Tuesday's episode that Kelly was"part of the problem" in publicly addressing mental health issues."How about we do our due diligence and make sure we know what the reality of a situation before we come for people?" she said."It broke my heart to see someone who is really living her life for the betterment of others while also trying to pursue her own passion, which is tennis and fashion."

"Let her live. Let her make decisions for herself that protect her own well-being," Day said of Osaka."It's at no cost to anyone." Read more: NBC News »
