Congrats to U.S. Womens Soccer Team-Champs on the Field

Not so much off the field.

Throughout the 2019 Women’s World Cup, Megan Rapinoe became a source of both inspiration and ire for her silent and vocal protests to the current state of America.

On the field, the USWNT midfielder pointedly kept her hands pressed to her sides and her mouth shut while the American national anthem was played before their matches. The move was interpreted as a sign of disrespect to the country and American troops, further dividing rather than bringing the country together.

Slide 5 of 10: United States women's national team forward Megan Rapinoe (15) speaks at New York City Hall after the ticker-tape parade for the United States women's national soccer team down the canyon of heroes in New York City.

She fininished her speech by dropping an “F-Bomb”.
