File this one under If the roles were reversed and a man kicked balls at a woman for making a personal choice of what she wanted to eat, the left would go nuts.
“Just saw this ad on TV. Megan Rapinoe kneels for America’s national anthem but apparently stands up to do ads for Subway,” one poster wrote on Twitter.
In the new America, is it ok, because the feminist for equality, plays on an all-female Soccer team and is celebrated by woke supremacists, is who is kicking a ball at some men. Combined with the fact that she is doing it for a woke corporatist brand, Subway Sub sandwiches, and it is instant nirvana for the left cancel culture mob, who reacts to every other offense, but who will applaud this aggression against males.
Remember that Rapinoe is a social justice warrior who often complains that she doesn’t make as much as male soccer players do. So it is curious how Subway doesn’t see their commercial as a “micro-aggression” against men.
In the following commercial, Rapinoe kicks a ball at three different men and almost hits them when they are walking by, knocks a man’s phone almost out of his hand, and dislodged a man’s food while he is eating to pimp out Subway sandwiches.
In a dominant and bad sportsman-like way, she tells the men to get subway sandwiches.
A boycott of Subway has begun:
Subway just hired Megan Rapinoe as a spokesman — Sound off on their complaint page…https://t.co/lvb4TRHGT1
Hopefully she'll end up just like Jared! Smells like fish, tastes like chicken.

@SubwayListens I'm sorry but putting Megan Rapinoe in as spokes person can not be more devisive as far as I'm concerned of all the non political characters out there you could have picked, this puts subway way down on the list when I get hungry — you should find some one else

One blogger wrote about the youtube commercial, starting Rapinoe, and described the scene: “The guys crossing this soccer field are about to order some burritos, when suddenly Megan Rapinoe kicks a ball at them and says they should get Subway instead.”
Rapinoe has been a sweetheart of the left for some time, even though she has yet to actually do much of anything. After numerous failed projects, Rapinoe ended up with Democrat Joe Biden recently complaining about how she isn’t paid the same at male players.
NPR covered some of Rainoe’s complaints and said:
“In the 2019 Women’s World Cup finals, when the final whistle blew, and the U.S. team stormed the field in celebration, thousands of fans chanted, “Equal pay! Equal Pay!”
The U.S. Women’s National Team, co-captained by Megan Rapinoe, has been a symbol of gender equality ever since they filed a lawsuit in March 2019 against the U.S. Soccer Federation alleging pay discrimination.
Members of the women’s soccer team earn significantly less than their male counterparts — despite the fact that their team has been more successful and more profitable. (The women’s team has won four World Cup tournaments; the men’s team has never won the World Cup.)
Rapinoe says that when it comes to paying equity, the U.S. is due for a “paradigm shift” in how we understand the value and potential of women.
“Men are so often paid and compensated on the potential that they show, not necessarily what they’ve done,” Rapinoe says. “And women are so often paid on what they’ve actually done — which normally I would say, we outperform what our contract was.”
The reaction was not great. Few people were supportive.
Megan Rapinoe Subway commercials are epic! 😁

I actually face palmed when I saw that Rapinoe Subway commercial, not because shilling is bad, but I thought her agent could've gotten her something bigger/better
