Megan Rapinoe sticks to her word and refuses to sing national anthem at World Cup

Well, at least she keeps true to her promises.

USA soccer captain Megan Rapinoe refused to put her hand over her heart and sing the national anthem, as the US defeated Thailand by a score of 13-0 on Tuesday, the largest victory in World Cup history.

Rapinoe was the first white athlete to take a knee in support of former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick back in 2016. She also told Yahoo News this past year that she’s a walking protest of the Trump administration.

“So it’s kind of a good ‘F you’ to any sort of inequality or bad sentiments that the [Trump] administration might have towards people who don’t look exactly like him. Which, God help us if we all looked like him. Scary. Really scary.””

But don’t worry. Rapinoe is a woman of class. She celebrates a goal excessively up 9-0!
