After reputedly tearing her Achilles tendon in the last game of her professional career, U.S. Soccer star Megan Rapinoe, 38, declared that the injury was proof that God does not exist.

Rapinoe was playing in the NWSL Final for OL Reign against Gotham FC on Saturday night when she injured herself in the third minute of the game.

“I’m not a religious person or anything and if there was a God, this is proof that there isn’t. This is f***ed up,” Rapinoe said in her post-game interview, adding, “For sure, I tore my Achilles,” describing the moment of the injury as a “huge pop.”

“I wasn’t overly emotional about it,” Rapinoe said. “I mean, f***ing yeeted my Achilles in the sixth minute in my last game ever in the literal championship game. … I guess I just rode until the wheels came right off … I’m just a NARP, a normal-ass regular person, having to do rehab which is f***ing devastating.”

“You gotta find the silver lining and the dark humor, and that’s just who I am as well,” she concluded, The Daily Mail reported.

In September, Rapinoe refused to sing the national anthem at the last game she played as part of the U.S. Women’s Soccer team.

As far back as September 2016, Rapinoe refused to stand during the national anthem, taking a knee instead. “Quite honestly, being gay, I have stood with my hand over my heart during the national anthem and felt like I haven’t had my liberties protected,” she stated.

In May 2019, Rapinoe told Yahoo Sports, “I’ll probably never put my hand over my heart. I’ll probably never sing the national anthem again,” boasting that she was “a walking protest when it comes to the Trump administration,” because of “everything I stand for.”

She added, “I feel like it’s kind of defiance in and of itself to just be who I am and wear the jersey, and represent it. Because I’m as talented as I am, I get to be here, you don’t get to tell me if I can be here or not. So it’s kind of a good ‘F you’ to any sort of inequality or bad sentiments that the [Trump] administration might have towards people who don’t look exactly like him. Which, God help us if we all looked like him. Scary. Really scary. Ahh, disturbing.”
