Somebody is always digging through tweets of famous celebrities.
Well, somebody who has much more time than I do dug through TEN YEARS worth of Megan Rapinoe’s tweets to find this…

They’re starting to eat their own, you guys.
I can’t think of a female athlete more “woke” than Megan Rapinoe, but I guess that doesn’t mean much to the mob anymore.
If the woke mob truly believes what they say, then they’ll cancel the sh*t out of her and we’ll never hear from her again. I doubt that will happen, but we’ll see. These rules only ever seem to work one way. Hunter Biden is a great example of that.
Rules for thee, but not for me.
Will Victoria’s Secret drop her? Will the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team stop her from competing in the Olympics (which is being held in an Asian country)? Will Nike end her sponsorship deal? I’m guessing the answer is no to all three, but maybe I’ll be suprised.
So far, Rapinoe has ignored the whole ordeal. If it doesn’t go away on its own, she’s going to have to resort to the groveling public apology that has become the standard for these kinds of situations. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn’t. So far, it hasn’t worked for Chrissy Teigen.
This could get very interesting.
Fox News had this to say:
Megan Rapinoe is the face of U.S. Soccer and a new face of Victoria’s Secret but on Thursday night she found herself in a bit of hot water after an old tweet of hers was dug up.
It’s unclear who Rapinoe was responding to or what the original message was. The user does not appear to have a Twitter account anymore. According to the Sports Room, the account belonged to Natasha Kai — a former US Olympian who played professional soccer. Kai was born in Hawaii.
Rapinoe nor Kai responded to any of the social media uproar.
