The World Cup-winning United States women’s soccer team was honored with a ticker tape parade in New York on Wednesday as both fans and politicians helped make the players’ case for equal pay with their male counterparts.

During the post-parade rally captain Megan Rapinoe – one of the players involved in the ongoing wage discrimination lawsuit against the U.S. Soccer Federation – became so overwhelmed with the support she and her teammates received, the 34-year-old cried out: ‘New York City, you’re the mother***ing best!’

The article goes on to state the following:

Moments earlier, Rapinoe declined to sing the national anthem along with her teammates or place her hand over her heart. The 34-year-old star had refused to do either during the World Cup and in previous years, she knelt during the anthem in solidarity with former NFL quarterback-turned social activist Colin Kaepernick, who first started the protests in 2016 to address inequality and racist police brutality.
