Notorious anti-Trump women’s soccer star Megan Rapinoe used her perch while accepting her ‘Sportsperson of the Year Award’ to slam the very company, Sports Illustrated, that awarded it to her.
As The Daily Wire reports:
“As one of just four women to win the Sportsperson of the Year award, she wasted no time in putting SI in the hot seat,” Mediaite reported Tuesday.
“Is it truth that I’m only the fourth woman deserving of this award? I don’t think so,” Rapinoe said while accepting her award.
“Is it true so few writers of color deserve to be featured in this publication? No,” the athlete continued. “Is it true so few women’s voices deserve to be heard and deserve to be read in this publication? I don’t think so.”

The soccer star made waves during the 2019 World Cup when she refused to hold her hand over her heart as a “f*** you” to “sexist,” “racist,” and “small-minded” President Donald Trump.
The bizarre speech seems like a truly stunning backstab from Rapinoe against Sports Illustrated. But should they really be so surprised that a woman who refused to honor the America flag would be so inclinded to betray those who thought they were her friends?
