The United States Women's Soccer Team was honored with a ticker tape parade in New York City yesterday.
Captain Megan Rapinoe was so overcome with emotion that she thanked the fans in attendance and dropped an f-bomb on live TV, saying, "New York City, you're the mother***ing best!"
During her speech, Rapinoe spoke about the team’s diversity: "We have pink hair and purple hair, we have tattoos and dreadlocks, we have white girls and black girls and everything in between. Straight girls and gay girls."
Prior to the post-parade rally, Rapinoe declined to sing the national anthem along with her teammates or place her hand over her heart. In previous years, she has knelt during the anthem.
The rally and parade served as an opportunity for fans and politicians to demand fair wages for the U.S. women after they won the World Cup.
