United States Women’s soccer champion Megan Rapinoe came under major heat over the weekend after a video of her and one of her young fans went viral. In the video, a child approached Rapinoe for an autograph on his soccer ball.

Rapinoe took the young boy’s ball and signed it. However, viewers noticed that she never said a word to him — or even took a moment to look at him.

She casually looked around the venue, stared down at his ball as she scribbled her name, but she appeared to completely ignore the kid. People weren’t happy about it.

Many criticized her for the way she treated the boy. Piers Morgan was among those who called Rapinoe out on her diva-like attitude.

Aside from sports, Rapinoe is well known for her critical remarks against President Donald Trump. Recently, the soccer star blasted POTUS in a scathing CNN interview, where she insisted that his “Make America Great Again” message excludes certain groups of people.

In breaking news, boxing legend “Sweet Pea” passed away in a tragic accident at only 55 years old.
