Megan Rapinoe Trashes Washington Spirit For What They Did To Her Tonight

Megan Rapinoe has responded to the Washington Spirit's decision to prevent her from protesting the national anthem this evening.

"It's f---ing unbelievable," she says.

Rapinoe, who plays for the Seattle Reign of the National Women's Soccer League, played at the Washington Spirit tonight. It was her first game since kneeling during the national anthem before a game on Sunday. She intended on kneeling again tonight, but the Spirit played the Star Spangled Banner before the players came out.

The Spirit said they didn't want her to "hijack" the event.

Here's their full statement.

Here's Rapinoe's response.

More to come.
