CAUTION: CONTAINS EXPLICIT LANGUAGE. VIDEO WAS TAKEN IN A LOCKER ROOM
The U.S. women’s national soccer team let an American flag drop to the ground while celebrating their World Cup win.
The team won the World Cup on July 7 for the second time in a row, and players celebrated on the field.
One player holding a flag dropped it in order to participate in a specific celebration with captain Megan Rapinoe and another teammate. Allie Long, the player, was holding the flag in both of her hands as Rapinoe got close to her and appeared to push the flag away.
Long transferred the flag to her left hand, then back to the right, before letting it drop to the ground.
Among those criticizing letting the flag drop to the ground was Navy SEAL Jonathan Gilliam and John Tiegen, a U.S. Marine who survived the 2012 Benghazi attack.
“You should be disturbed by this unpatriotic narcissistic behavior. Megan Rapinoe is neither a hero or a role model. I rewound and watched the entire celebration on the field. Rapinoe didn’t want anything to do with an #Americanflag before she stomped it,” Gilliam wrote on Twitter.
“What should be an amazing occurence, is hijacked by the clown show to promote disrespect. So brave,” added Tiegen.
