Warriors forward Draymond Green made news last week when he was critical of how women have been pushing for equal pay in athletics.
“They’re not laying out steps that they can take to change that,” Green said via The Spun. “It’s coming off as a complaint because the people who can change it are just going to continue to say, ‘Well, the revenue isn’t there. If you don’t bring in the revenue, we can’t up your pay.’ They’re going to keep using that, but the reality is, as true as that is, it’s an excuse. Everyone says, ‘We support women. We support women’s empowerment. We support women in the workplace. We do this for women. We do X for women. Blah, blah, blah.’”
Women’s soccer star Megan Rapinoe has been at the forefront of the fight for equal pay, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone that she has a message for Draymond Green after his ignorant comment.
“You obviously kind of showed your whole ass in not even understanding what we all talk about all the time,” Rapinoe said. “You don’t think we’ve asked for more funding? What are we screaming about nonstop?”

Rapinoe would go on to say that she was disappointed in Green’s comments, being as he has such a big platform.
“That was really disappointing, and from someone who has such a big platform, that’s just not acceptable at all.”
It’s clear that Megan Rapinoe is going to continue her push for equal pay, no matter what Draymond Green thinks or has to say about the movement.
