As the U.S. women's national team made its way through the World Cup over the past few weeks, famously conservative British commentator and football fan Piers Morgan had some choice words about the way American superstar Megan Rapinoe was handling herself on the field.
Morgan took to Twitter more than once to fire shots at Rapinoe and her teammates on the US team.
He probably regrets some of these tweets now, however.
Or, he should.
Ms Rapinoe sure does love herself. Can’t wait to see our Lionesses dent that stupendous ego. https://t.co/w5FzcnXvGQ— Piers Morgan (@Piers Morgan) 1561756105.0
The arrogance of this is breathtaking. Try winning it first, Ms Rapinoe - then inform us of your latest tiresome po… https://t.co/yl7LDyeQlT— Piers Morgan (@Piers Morgan) 1562418568.0
Morgan dragged Rapinoe for having a "stupendous ego" and for "loving herself" which are apparently bad things to have when you're a female sports star.
He told her to "try winning it first."
