Conservatives took to X, formerly known as Twitter, to gloat and mock soccer star Megan Rapinoe missing a crucial kick during the Women’s World Cup.

Rapinoe ended her soccer career at the World Cup by missing a penalty kick for the United States women’s national team which exited in the round of 16. Sweden won the penalty shootout by 5-4 and ended up advancing after a scoreless game.

Conservatives on social media delighted in the U.S. squad’s defeat and mocked Rapinoe for missing the crucial penalty shot. Last month, the women’s soccer legend announced her plans to retire after the World Cup.

Right-wing notables such as Charlie Kirk, Clay Travis and others sent out red meat tweets to their followers on Sunday mocking Rapinoe.
