On Friday, far-left soccer player Megan Rapinoe was roasted on the internet over an old tweet from 2011, in which she said another account looked “Asian with those closed eyes.”

Fox News notes, “It’s unclear who Rapinoe was responding to or what the original message was. The user does not appear to have a Twitter account anymore. According to the Sports Room, the account belonged to Natasha Kai — a former US Olympian who played professional soccer. Kai was born in Hawaii.”
Here are some of the most blistering replies to Rapinoe:
