Special Place In Hell” Megan Rapinoe Mocks Christians, Says Haters Have A

The enigmatic soccer player spoke about the career-ending injury earlier this week and couldn’t help but take a few shots at her critics and Christians. On something called the “Pablo Torre Finds Out” podcast, Rapinoe talked about her injury. “It is sad. I wish that didn’t happen.” Being the nature of sports, some fans, right or wrong, will celebrate an injury. Rapinoe’s injury likely elicited a little more joy, especially among those who were tired of her off-the-field antics.

I’m just thinking about my teammates coming over and – of course, it’s sad, but it’s also like – I don’t know, it’s kind of just like life. We want these perfect stories, and I’m like a controversial figure and having people lowkey celebrate it. But then also be so disingenuous about that that part is kinda funny too. I’m like, ‘Wow, you guys are in a special place in hell that you’re celebrating this.’”

Naturally, she tried to maintain she was making a joke, but many folks didn’t see the humor. She continued on the podcast, “Somebody needs to check on the Christians. They’re not OK. They also missed the whole joke, but OK. Don’t act like A. you’re surprised by me making this joke about what happened or finding a dig. Who’s it at? God, myself, religion, the world? I don’t know. It’s just funny.”
