Megan Rapinoe, former U.S. women’s soccer star, addressed the controversy surrounding her career-ending injury, stating that it was “proof” there isn’t a god and criticizing those who celebrated it.

She described the situation as “tragically comedic” and emphasized that there are more important things in life.

“It is sad,” Rapinoe said. “I wish that didn’t happen.”

“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,” she added.

“I’m like, ‘Wow, you guys are in a special place in hell that you’re celebrating this,'” she said.

“It’s not funny, but also this is how I live my life. There are so many more important things than this. And, of course, it’s sad, I don’t think it takes anything away from my career,” she said.

Rapinoe also responded to the backlash, calling it a “joke” and mentioning the Christians’ reaction.

“Somebody needs to check on the Christians. They’re not OK,” Rapinoe said. “They also missed the whole joke, but OK.”

“Don’t act like 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.”

Having won numerous accolades, including two Women’s World Cup titles, an Olympic gold medal, the Ballon d’Or, and the Best FIFA Women’s Player awards, Rapinoe announced her retirement last summer.
