The reposts that got USWNT fans the most upset were on TikTok. It appears Albert’s account reposted videos about people needing to “be saved from being gay or transgender.”

The fans vehemently reacted to Albert’s social media activities.

Her other reposts included videos calling zodiac signs demonic and more conservative-leaning videos.

It will be interesting to see what happens next with Albert and the USWNT. The 20-year-old Paris Saint-Germain midfielder played a big role in the Concacaf W Gold Cup in February playing next to Sam Coffey.

The midfield pairing of Albert and Coffey started four games at the tournament including all three of the knockout games.

Albert was named to the SheBelieves Cup roster and is a hopeful for making it on the 18-player Olympics squad.

Time will tell if Albert’s social media controversy blows over or if any serious action is taken.
