Megan Rapinoe called out Warriors star Draymond Green for showing his ‘whole ass’ with his comments on inequalities in women’s sports. 

When the NBA star sent tweets that seemed to blame female athletes for the inequalities that are still prevalent in women’s sports, the U.S. women’s soccer legend quickly pointed out his ignorance and doubled down during an appearance at the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee’s media summit for the Tokyo Olympics. 

“Obviously you kinda showed your whole ass, not even understanding what we all talk about all the time, whether it’s WNBA players or us here on the national team,” Rapinoe said. “And you tagged the wrong people! You don’t think we have asked for more funding? What are we screaming about nonstop?”

As the disparities between the men’s and women’s NCAA basketball tournaments came to light, Green took to social media to share his thoughts on the matter. He largely missed the mark when he raised points that women have been discussing for years, like how executives explain the pay gap is directly tied to revenue.

He even said that how their stories are shared is one of the reasons why Green said he turned down doing Public Service Announcements during Women’s History Month.

“It’s hypocritical. Because these same companies that are telling women empowerment are not putting their money where their mouth is,” Green said. “Call on this companies to support y’all. To infuse capitol into the business.
