US soccer stars Morgan and Horan were upset by what a teammate wrote on social media.
An angry partner wrote something on social media that made US soccer stars Morgan and Horan look bad.

Several news sites, including Fox Sports, said that Paris St. Germain midfielder Albert apologized last week after it was found that she had shared a video from a Christian sermon that talked about how being gay and “feeling transgendered” was wrong.

It was said that Albert also liked a story about how Megan Rapinoe tore her Achilles tendon in her last professional match before retiring.

Rapinoe has spoken out for LGBT rights many times.

“We just want to talk about the disappointing things that have happened with Korbin over the past week,” Horan said in a video from the team’s camp on Wednesday, sitting next to Morgan.
“We’ve worked extremely hard to uphold the integrity of this national team through all of the generations, and we are extremely, extremely sad that this standard was not upheld.”

She said: “We stand by maintaining a safe and respectful space especially as allies and members of the LGBTQ+ community.”

After Rapinoe criticized Albert for her posts last week, the 20-year-old said she wasn’t trying to offend anyone.

News outlets say she wrote on Instagram, “Liking and sharing posts that are offensive, insensitive, and hurtful was immature and disrespectful, which was never my intention.”

“I’m really disappointed in myself and am deeply sorry for the hurt that I have caused my team mates, other players, fans, friends and anyone who was offended.”

When asked to react on what Morgan and Horan said, Albert did not answer right away.
