team usa uniform

U.S. soccer player Megan Rapinoe kneeled during the National Anthem — and her bosses are furious.

Megan Rapinoe kneeled during “The Star-Spangled Banner” before a USWNT exhibition game against Thailand Thursday night. It was Rapinoe’s first time making the demonstration while wearing a Team USA uniform — but not her first time speaking out.

“I am disgusted with the way [Colin Kaepernick] has been treated and the fans and hatred he has received in all of this,” Rapinoe told ESPN. “It is overtly racist: ‘Stay in your place, black man.’ Just didn’t feel right to me.”

“[Quite] honestly, being gay, I have stood with my hand over my heart during the national anthem and felt like I haven’t had my liberties protected,” she told espnW, “so I can absolutely sympathize with that feeling.”

U.S. Soccer is not happy with her demonstration and made their displeasure known in a patronizing public statement.

The Team USA Opening Ceremony uniform for next month’s Olympics. The only way that ensemble could get more American would be pizza sauce on the white sweatpants. I love this country.
