New Victoria’s Secret Angel Megan Rapinoe Under Fire For Old Tweet Some Are Calling Racist

A tweet from a decade ago has resurfaced and caught people’s attention.

Megan Rapinoe has made headlines for two very different reasons. The famous clothing brand Victoria’s Secret announced on Wednesday the company plans to have the USWNT star, transgender model Valentina Sampaio, actress Priyanka Chopra Jones and other women fill the role of the “angels” typically seen from the brand.

Victoria’s Secret said in a statement that it will “build new, deeper relationships with all women.”

On the same day Victoria’s Secret announced its partnership with Rapinoe, an old tweet from her emerged that caught many people’s attention.

The Rapinoe tweet from 2011 directed towards Natsaha Kai, a former teammate and USWNT Olympic gold medalist, went viral with some calling the tweet anti-Asian.
