Alexi Lalas put the FOX in FOX Soccer this week with a random tweet saying that the United States’ southern border is “a national embarrassment.” The U.S. Soccer community was quick to tear Lalas to shreds.
To clarify, the intent of this article isn’t to put a spotlight on Lalas and his political takes. It’s more so that I had to read this garbage and I don’t want to be the only one suffering.
If you thought Lalas’ soccer takes were annoying, just wait for his political talk.
Alexi Lalas border tweet & reaction
Our southern border is a national embarrassment. No security, no control, no sovereignty, no sense.— Alexi Lalas (@AlexiLalas) September 21, 2023
how do you support a national team chock full of immigrants, especially hispanic and latino ones, when you hold such callous beliefs? lalas would not survive 3 hours in an environment that immigrants flee from. such a fucking coward and disgrace to be the face of USMNT reporting. https://t.co/E4S7iJ3Xne— Melina (@melinadautovic) September 21, 2023

Alexi Lalas has long been clear that he's a hateful little doofus. I do find it interesting which people who continue to give him a platform, interact with him, are friends with him and treat him as someone who should be part of any decent community.— Ryan Rosenblatt (@RyanRosenblatt) September 21, 2023

This tweet from Lalas doesn’t come as too much of a surprise. This is the same guy who supports Ron DeSantis.
Thought @GovRonDeSantis ultimately came off as a candidate of competence, confidence, and common sense...and it will be lost in the technical disaster of Twitter Spaces.— Alexi Lalas (@AlexiLalas) May 24, 2023
The good news for Lalas haters is that the Twitter mute button exists.
