Megan Rapinoe’s past has come back to bite her as conservatives angry about her behavior during the national anthem and wanting to capitalize off of her missed penalty kick during the game with Sweden and laugh after she missed it, both of which drew criticism from all corners.
This time it came back to bite with a video of Megan Rapinoe dealing with a young fan who wanted her to sign his soccer ball. Though she did so, she didn’t look up at him and looked annoyed with the whole situation, rather than grateful for her fans and ability to kick a ball for a living.
Twitter personality Oli London found and posted the video, captioning it by saying, “Imagine being such an arrogant Narcissist that you don’t even look at a young fan and acknowledge them when signing a ball. This is Megan Rapinoe in a nut shell…”

The incident occurred in 2019, during the ESPY Awards in Los Angeles. Predictably, Megan’s dismissive attitude toward the young fan drew fire from social media.“Doesn’t even look at him. Diabolical arrogance,” Piers Morgan wrote.“Pitiful,” another user commented. “That’s just so sad. That kid really looked up to her, to ask her for an autograph. She’s a classic narcissist. I feel bad for the kid,” still another wrote. “Never meet your heroes guys,” another person commented.
The anger directed toward Megan comes alongside much criticism of Megan over her and the USWNT’s World Cup performance. Former President Donald Trump, for instance, said, “The “shocking and totally unexpected” loss by the U.S. Women’s Soccer Team to Sweden is fully emblematic of what is happening to the our once great Nation under Crooked Joe Biden. Many of our players were openly hostile to America – No other country behaved in such a manner, or even close. WOKE EQUALS FAILURE. Nice shot Megan, the USA is going to Hell!!! MAGA“
