US soccer captain says she will 'probably never sing the national anthem again' as 'f-you' to Trump...right back at ya' lady!

Just weeks before U.S. Women's soccer captain Megan Rapinoe leads her team to defend their World Cup title in France, the star athlete defended her national anthem protests in a new interview that is generating buzz and controversy.

What did she say?

Rapinoe told Yahoo! News in an interview published this week that she will "probably never sing the national anthem again" in protest of the Trump administration.
"I'll probably never put my hand over my heart," she said. "I'll probably never sing the national anthem again."

The openly gay soccer star triggered a wave of controversy in September 2016 after she knelt during the national anthem before a soccer match, becoming the first white athlete to follow in former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick's footsteps. The protest is a demonstration against rampant police brutality in the U.S.
